Director of Recruitment and Engagement  –  Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest

The Director of Recruitment and Engagement (DRE) will build a robust pipeline of prospective Jesuit Volunteer AmeriCorps members (JVs), as well as Jesuit Volunteer EnCorps members (JVEs), that represent the diverse nature of our nonprofit partners and enable JVC Northwest to fulfill our mission to respond to local community needs in the Northwest by recruiting and supporting volunteers who provide value-centered service grounded in the Jesuit Catholic tradition. In addition, the Director will lead efforts to engage alumni of the JV and JVE programs to share their experiences and support the efforts of JVC Northwest.

The Director of Recruitment and Engagement will be guided by placement metrics including: number of qualified prospects, number of submitted applications, number of placed volunteers, and length of retention in the program and participation as an alumni after completion of service.  Central to this endeavor, the Director will be actively engaged in the diversity, equity, and inclusion work of JVC Northwest, building a JV and JVE cohort that reflects our nonprofit partners and their communities.

To reach these metrics, the Director will oversee three staff people focusing on recruitment, communications, and external constituent engagement. The Director and team will be responsible for: developing recruitment materials including print and online, aligning recruitment strategies to serve the selection and placement process and program goals, and building an engagement strategy for alumni including printed and online strategies.

Understanding the importance of a consistent external message, the Director will also oversee communications to the greater JVC Northwest community by utilizing social media, online, and print materials to share the JVC Northwest story and build audience engagement.

The Director reports to the Executive Director, serves on the Senior Managers Team, and represents JVC Northwest as an avid believer of our four core values and the importance of living in an inclusive community that represents the diversity of our partners.
