Candidate Profile

First and foremost, you should have a passion for creating a justice-based world. Art-Reach works hard to create a world where people with disabilities and people experiencing poverty can bring their authentic selves into experiences. The person in this role is the one who shapes and communicates that story to existing and future program participants, donors, community leaders, and cross-sector partners. The idea ‘nothing about us, without us’ is incredibly important to Art-Reach so people with disabilities and people who have experienced poverty are encouraged to apply.

No one candidate will be perfect for this job. The skills and experience needed to be successful for this job exist on a spectrum. One version of a strong candidate will have three years of demonstrated success in nonprofit communications. Experience with digital design, websites, social media, and project management is certainly helpful, as is experience in communicating complex ideas. Another strong candidate might not have communications experience at all but they bring an innovative approach to design and their enthusiasm for design work brings their projects in on time. Another candidate might be early in their career and looking to learn what they can from this role so they can take that experience on to a larger role later in their career.

Familiarity with communications and marketing operations, and/or a willingness to learn, is going to be really helpful for anyone who enters this role. You will be well positioned for success if you bring knowledge of accessibility, cultural programming, design and websites.

If you are familiar with any of these programs, or others similar to them, we want to hear about it.

Art-Reach does not believe that success is predicated on the academic degrees you possess. As such, degrees are not required for positions at Art-Reach. If you believe your educational experience adds to your candidacy, feel free to tell us why.

One more note before we move on. Frequently cited statistics show that candidates with disabilities, BIPOC candidates, women, and systemically excluded people apply to jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. Art-Reach is happy to leave that statistic in the past as much as you. No one ever meets 100% of the qualifications. Just apply.
