Chill Marketing Content Coordinator
Multiple Locations: Burlington, Vermont, United States • United States
Requisition Number: 573
Position Title: Marketing Coordinator (Product & Mine 77)
Why does Chill exist?
Chill exists to ensure youth have the skills and experiences to become mindful, independent, and resilient individuals who instinctively view any challenge as a growth opportunity; to bridge the boardsport and outdoor opportunity gap and foster a sense of belonging within a cool, authentic, and alternative culture; and to create inclusive space and meaningful experiences for youth from marginalized communities and intersecting identities, of all races, sexual orientations, gender identities, socio-economic backgrounds, and more.
How does Chill achieve this?
Revolving around a core value-driven curriculum, Chill programs consist of experiential learning activities, reflection, and discussion, paired with board sport lessons. Chill’s six core values provide youth with a foundation and framework for learning and growth, supported and enhanced through on-board progression and adult mentorship. Chill removes all barriers to accessing boardsports by providing participants with everything they need to get after it, at absolutely no cost. New skills gained through boardsport progression and core-value exploration are then directly applied to everyday life, challenging youth to step out of their comfort zone – both on and off their board.
The Marketing Content Coordinator, reporting to the Director of Marketing, will be a creative thinker, independent self-starter, and have savvy social media skills to help us build brand awareness and elevate our online presence. This role will serve as an integral part of Chill’s Global Marketing and Development team and will be responsible for creating content daily. This includes but is not limited to writing impact stories, press releases, blog posts, newsletters, providing updated content for our website, writing content for quarterly and annual impact reports, as well as growing and expanding our social media/online presence. This role will support Chill’s global marketing efforts and the person in this position needs to be comfortable writing and talking about diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice-related issues. Work will be done primarily during standard business hours, but due to the nature of Chill’s regional and global programs, some scheduling flexibility will be needed.
Our HQ is based in Burlington, Vermont, but this position can be based near any of our program locations in North America.
