About the Role
The Director of Communications (DC) will execute a world-class communications plan for MII to remove animal-derived materials from the ecosystem. The DC will promote and enhance MII’s mission and brand reputation.
The DC will be responsible for working across the organization, including: newsletters; print publications; website; social media; and other online communications; media and public relations; and marketing. Our main audiences are entrepreneurs; investors; fashion, automotive, and home goods brands; and scientists.
This is a vital role and is currently the only communications role at MII. The DC will work alongside the Chief Executive Officer to implement MII’s strategy and vision for the communications of the organization. The strategy of the department will be set by the CEO. The DC will serve as liaison between MII’s experts and external audiences, collaborating with each department to ensure successful messaging of MII’s programs. The position will ensure continuity throughout MII’s communications and provide communications assistance to the MII team as needed.
This opportunity could develop into a more strategic leadership role in time.
