The Senior Consultant is a role that demands creative thinking, a strong consulting presence, solid organization and time management skills, and a passion for working collaboratively with colleagues and clients. We’re looking for a well-rounded and persuasive individual who can facilitate dialogue around smart interactive marketing solutions in a room full of passionate and assertive people.

The Senior Consultant will work with multiple clients – playing the lead consultant role in some cases, and managing the day-to-day relationship in others – brainstorming concepts, laying out the game plan, and championing the ideas through development.

After the dust settles, the Senior Consultant analyzes the results and applies what’s been learned to inform the next efforts.

Responsibilities

  • Develop successful campaigns for online programs that will build constituencies and inspire advocates, raise money, and other measurable outcomes.
  • Work with Beaconfire’s cross-functional client teams to develop marketing campaigns and communications efforts that can incorporate everything from email campaigns to social marketing to community building to SEO and SEM.
  • Lead brainstorming and strategic planning sessions with clients.
  • Establish and maintain relationships with delivery partners.
  • Communicate vision, issues and/or problems to the project team and client.

Required Skills / Experience

  • Around 8 years experience with online marketing and fundraising campaigns; experience with related disciplines such as grassroots organizing, direct mail, consulting, and cross-channel marketing or working with or at a nonprofit organization highly desirable. But, we care more about what you have done rather than how long you have done it.
  • Hands-on experience in analyzing and reporting on campaign-related data, and using this data to inform strategic decision making.
  • Understanding of, and commitment to, issues of social justice, human rights, humanitarian relief, poverty and hunger, healthcare and disabilities, political advocacy, the environment, and/or women’s rights.
  • Demonstrated success using digital tools, processes, and creative techniques for nonprofit fundraising, activism, and constituency building.
  • Experience leading a multifaceted project, managing a project team and budget.
  • Create project plans, budgets and goals to achieve client needs.
  • Ability to prioritize and manage competing demands and deadlines. Proactively identify, communicate and collaborate to solve problems.
  • Must be a resourceful, self-starter with an ability to work both independently and with a cross-departmental team.
  • Excellent verbal, written, and interpersonal communication and presentation skills.
  • Experience using eCRM and CMS platforms such as Convio, Salsa and/or NetCommunity is a plus.
