A friend at UBC passed along a job posting for their Director, Interactive and Development Marketing. He described it as a
…strategic leadership role to engage over 400,000 UBC alumni and friends through a full suite of online media, including development of a UBC online community, and a significant ad campaign. Could be a real career milestone.
The job description is:
Reporting directly to the Development and Alumni Engagement (DAE) Chief Communications Officer, the Director, Interactive and Development Marketing is responsible for creating and implementing marketing strategies to secure donor and alumni engagement through traditional and social media. The Director will be responsible for supporting the University’s mission of providing alumni, donors, and friends of the University with meaningful opportunities for engagement and investment with the University. The Director works with various University clients to develop integrated marketing communications and outreach plans and campaigns in support of the portfolio’s priorities for the University with regards to donor activity and alumni engagement. The Director develops processes to oversee the execution of these plans, tracks deadlines, and manages issues, and budgets and ensures accurate reporting. The main areas of focus will be social media, traditional media, business activities, and issue management.
Jobs like this don’t come open very often in Vancouver, I think it would be an amazing opportunity for the right person.
