Media Organization: The Years Project
THE YEARS PROJECT is a team of former 60 Minutes producers who have won a combined 13 Emmy Awards. We created the climate TV series YEARS OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY, which set the standard for climate storytelling on television. We now are doing the same on social media. In 2018 we produced one to two short-form social media videos every day, the average of which netted 3.9 million views. We have the largest following of any environmental group except Greenpeace, and a partner network with a reach of more than 230 million. So far this year, the videos we’ve released on social media have gotten 500 million views. Next year we anticipate them to get more than a billion.
Come join us to make it happen. Because the story has to be told. Now.
The YEARS Project (YEARS) is seeking a focused and savvy social media community manager to identify potential social media partners, interact with our online audience and document our progress as we seek to become the authoritative voice on climate change on social media. The position requires the ability to work independently and under a team of social media directors.
Responsibilities include: monitoring conversations on our social media pages, researching and reaching out to social media influencers, helping to maintain up-to-date contact lists, researching the latest social media trends and best practices, identifying upcoming climate-related stories with strong social potential, and writing social media posts. First-hand knowledge of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram is a must, as well as a passion for climate change. Knowing how to analyze audience metrics, experience with CrowdTangle, and a general knowledge of the environmental non-profit landscape is a plus. This is a long-term, full-time staff position at our New York office and is available immediately.
To apply, please send resume, cover letter, and any additional documents to Administrator@theyearsproject.com.
