A Twitter chat is like a meeting on Twitter; it has a specific discussion topic and a scheduled start time. Using the hashtag #MilCents at the end of each tweet, MFAN will ask questions to a group of financial experts.
Network Engagement Manager
The Military Family Advisory Network (MFAN), a national nonprofit that serves military and veteran families, is hiring a skilled, agile, detail-oriented professional to manage our advisory board and local engagement efforts.
The advisory board is MFAN’s hallmark program, it convenes leaders and influencers in the military family community—from across the country—to discuss the challenges families are facing, and also make sure that military families are connected to the resources available. It was at the advisory board meetings that MFAN’s work on topics like military housing and food insecurity began. A successful candidate will be a blend of visionary, strategist, project manager, communicator, and doer. This role requires someone who is comfortable leading group discussions around complex topics, building consensus, problem-solving, and the innate ability to establish connections with those we serve. Under our director of programs, a successful candidate will bring a blend of experience in facilitation, community engagement, and volunteer management. This is a forward-facing role with growth potential.
We are looking for someone with a “can-do” attitude who has a balance of creativity, problem-solving skills, polish, and project management experience.
Because this is an external-facing role, the network and program manager should have a working knowledge of the military and veteran landscape (public and private sectors), and, most importantly, an authentic appreciation and commitment to understanding and responding to the needs of modern military families.
A successful network engagement manager will be able to demonstrate proficiency in the areas listed above, be able to multi-task and manage multiple priorities, have superior attention to detail, and be polished in all forms of communication. Most importantly, a successful candidate will have a passion for supporting military families, a positive attitude, and be willing to roll up their sleeves and get to work.
This is a remote full-time position with some travel to our community sites. Candidates are expected to have a dedicated workspace, a computer, internet, and a cell phone. Occasional weekend and after-hours work can be expected. If you are ready to hit the ground running, want to contribute to a meaningful mission, and thrive in an exciting, fast-paced environment, we want to hear from you.
Interested candidates should submit a resume, cover letter, and salary requirements in pdf format to [email protected] no later than May 28, 2021.
