Pheasants Forever, Inc.
Closes December 4, 2020
Pheasants Forever, Inc., seeks a highly motivated, passionate and team-oriented individual to share our ongoing story of wildlife conservation through sustainable agriculture. The Director of Agricultural Communications will work jointly with Pheasants Forever, USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and other partners to create and implement a communications strategy for “Working Lands For Wildlife” (WLFW) initiatives that conserve grazing lands in the western U.S. These WLFW include voluntary, strategic, landscape-scale conservation practices on private lands in the prairie grasslands, the sagebrush-steppe, and the desert Southwest.
The Director will develop and oversee targeted communications plans for each regional initiative, as well as consistent messages for the broader western WLFW effort, geared specifically to engaging agricultural audiences. Director will be able to work remotely as an independent contractor of Pheasants Forever, with daily instruction and leadership provided by NRCS’ Western WLFW Lead. Successful applicant will supervise two part-time WLFW communications specialists as well as as-needed communications contractors, and work collaboratively with WLFW’s national, state, and field-based NRCS staff, partner organizations’ staff, and scientists. Successful applicant will work from home with some travel (~20% after COVID subsides).
