At Fast and Female we feel that the need for connection and communication is stronger than ever. With that in mind, we are seeking an experienced Communications Manager to help us connect, communicate, grow and achieve our strategic goals and mission of keeping girls healthy and active in sports.
If you’re dedicated, ambitious, and passionate about empowering girls through sports, Fast and Female is the place for you. If you thrive working in a dynamic, remote environment and love teamwork and crushing lofty goals, we want to meet you!
ABOUT FAST AND FEMALE
Fast and Female is a registered charity with a mission to keep girls healthy and active in sports. We do this by introducing self-identifying girls ages 8-14 to inspiring role models through fun-filled, empowering, non-competitive programming.
We are a small but mighty team that thrives on passion, communication, teamwork, and solutions. We’re already a remote team and are spread out across Canada. We’re big on authenticity (be you, be real), inclusion (caring is cool), fun, and empowerment.
Every single thing we do is guided by the mission – we do it for the girls!
You are a creative go-getter who loves a challenge. Needless to say, you love communicating and interacting with people and your background makes you pretty excellent at it. Although you’re a big picture thinker with a growth mindset, you’re not afraid to roll up your sleeves and hustle hard. You know what it’s like to wear a lot of hats and work on a small team – whether it’s scheduling social media posts, creating speaking notes for role models, creating videos, keeping the team informed, promoting programs, or strategic planning for the organization’s 5 year goals, you are game. You’ve got a knack for creating engaging content and dreaming up new ways to connect with people and tell stories. You’re incredibly organized and passionate about planning, but also highly flexible and dynamic … wow this sounds like a contradiction, but both planning and flexibility are needed in this organization. You are dependable, authentic, and last but certainly not least, passionate about our mission.
Sound like you? We can’t wait to meet you!
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
In addition to managing communications channels, maintaining the website and subscriber lists, liaising with stakeholders, and planning/creating content, you’ll be responsible for:
- Setting and guiding the plan for all internal and external communications, messaging and collateral to consistently articulate Fast and Female’s mission.
- Supporting the achievement of strategic goals and priorities, specifically in ensuring consistency and integrity of Fast and Female messaging and branding internally and externally.
- Working in areas of participant experience, partnerships, fund development, and awareness and brand positioning.
