Princeton University Advancement, Office of Development, works to inform, inspire, and involve Princeton’s global community of alumni, parents, and friends in ways that enable the University to fulfill its mission of advancing learning through scholarship, research, and teaching to serve the nation and the world. We’re seeking a Digital/Social Content Strategist – an experienced brand storyteller and visual thinker to create and manage digital and social content for the Princeton Office of Development, from initial strategy through execution. Please apply, including a cover letter with a link to an online portfolio, or to one or more examples of your work.
In addition to a primary focus on writing, this position is responsible for social channel management, content marketing, and outreach campaigns to build a digital community of advocates and advance the University’s engagement, fundraising, and stewardship goals. You must be comfortable using data to inform decisions and test ideas, and should love to “go beyond the brief” to find smart and unexpected approaches to pairing words and images. This position requires an amazing writer and adept creative conceptualizer who can create integrated campaigns across many communications channels—and who plans, tracks, and documents every step of the process. The position requires the ability to make decisions and produce materials while successfully balancing deadline pressures with competing priorities and the requirements of fundraisers and donors.
