*** From Chris Dour:

Ned,

Thought this would be an interesting addition for your weekly readers. A friend of mine has started a company called GreenSoul Shoes. GreenSoul Shoes' mission is to shoe underprivileged children around the world in an eco-beneficial fashion. They do it by working with local artisans to make a 100% upcycled sandal (a sandal made entirely out of recycled tires and inner tubes with no staples, glues or threads). For each one sold, they give one back to the community that made the sandals for them. GreenSoul Shoes was recently voted as a top 20 finalist in the 2009 Forbes Business Plan Boost Your Business Plan competition. This is a national competition and is probably the nation's premier business plan competition. To make it to the top 5, they need some help with online voting. Knowing the JOTW faithful like I do, it seemed only natural that they would appreciate a creative messaging opportunity and supporting a noteworthy cause at the same time…should they feel so inclined.

8.) Executive Director for Communications & Public Affairs, The UN Foundation, Washington DC

About the UN Foundation

The UN Foundation, a public charity, was created in 1998 with entrepreneur and philanthropist Ted Turner’s historic $1 billion gift to support UN causes and activities. We are an advocate for the UN and a platform for connecting people, ideas and resources to help the United Nations solve global problems. We help the UN take its best work and ideas to scale—through advocacy, partnerships, constituency building and fund-raising.

• Partnerships because we have learned what can be achieved when the public and private sectors work together through the United Nations;

• Advocacy because we know the leverage and impact that sound policy can have on the kind of social, economic and environmental change the UN seeks;

• Community-building because the UN was created for “we the people,” and all of us can give back and contribute to a better world; and

• We need new and additional resources to power solutions to global challenges.

The Foundation is a public charity. For more information about the United Nations Foundation, visit www.unfoundation.org.

Overview

The Executive Director of Communications and Public Affairs manages the public affairs staff, including eight direct reports and an annual budget of approximately $2 million. He or she oversees the development of integrated, strategic and innovative communications strategies for six program areas, and the UN Foundation, including message development, media outreach, and online activities (including social media).

The Public Affairs team helps create innovative campaigns to promote key issues such as global health, the US-UN relationship, climate change, and sustainable development. In the past these campaigns have included malaria prevention (the award-winning Nothing But Nets), sustainable tourism (Expedia co-branded Friends of World Heritage), and global peacekeeping (60th Anniversary PSA featuring George Clooney). The ED of Communications and Public Affairs also supports efforts by the United Nations to modernize its communications efforts.

The ideal candidate would be someone with political, agency and media experience. He or she should have a good sense of humor, the ability to think fast and execute faster, and think creatively about how to maximize the Foundation's brand. He or she should like to travel and have experience managing a strategic, integrated and multi-disciplinary team (earned, paid and social media).

56.) Head of Corporate Communications, Cambridgeshire Police, Cambridgeshire, UK

Communication’s another weapon in the fight against crime

As Head of Corporate Communications at Cambridgeshire Police, you’ll use your marketing and communications expertise to paint a positive policing image to the public – in Cambridgeshire and beyond.

The way a police force communicates with the communities it serves plays a fundamental role in winning hearts and minds in the fight against crime. And that’s half the battle because with the public on side – protecting them becomes easier. It’s about conveying messages loud and clear that portray a positive policing image, promoting achievements that help to build bridges and that foster trust. We’ll be looking to you to achieve all these.

Heading up a team that includes the Internal Communications Manager, Chief Press Officer and Marketing Manager, you’ll use the entire media spectrum to convey relevant news stories to internal and external audiences. On a regular basis, you’ll work directly with the Chief Constable on policy and practice issues, giving practical guidance on marketing communications, media relations, the Force website and our very own TV Unit. This is a massive role within Cambridgeshire Constabulary and, as such, we’re looking for a special set of skills.

A marketing expert with a relevant degree or similar professional qualification, you’ll have significant journalism, broadcasting or similar experience gained at senior management level. Here, you’ll have built up an impressive practical understanding of all aspects of traditional and cutting-edge media and communications, together with a thorough knowledge of marketing and media law. Confident, approachable and adept at managing local and national press, you’ll be comfortable with the challenge of defining the Force’s public image.
