The Boston Preservation Alliance is a non-profit historic
preservation advocacy and education organization with a staff of four. Working with
diverse partners and constituents we promote balancing preservation of the Boston’s
historic character with growth, evolution and vibrancy. We engage in
construction and development impacts throughout the city while advancing high
level policy and responding to current events.
We seek an enthusiastic and well-organized individual to
manage both office operations and external communications. The ideal candidate
will be motivated to manage smooth-running, efficient and quality internal systems
as part of a small, collaborative and enthusiastic team and strategically share
that enthusiasm for our mission externally.
The Office and Communications Manager will ensure that
day-to-day operations support mission and other staff by assisting with
fundraising management and bookkeeping (including regular database use),
playing a primary role in event planning and logistics, and organizing meetings
of our board and committees.
The Manager will also lead Communications with primary
oversight of social media and our web site. Additional tasks include development
of our bi-monthly e-newsletter, invitations, and other publications, some in
collaboration with a graphic designer. The ability to support and enhance
advocacy and fundraising efforts through creative and persuasive messaging via
all communications channels is crucial.
This is a newly configured position essential to the
Alliance’s success, and the ability to communicate concisely internally and
externally is critical.
