Marketing Manager – July 2020

As the Marketing Manager of SELC, you will be an integral part of the communications team working to engage and educate audiences about SELC and a full range of environmental issues of particular importance to the South—climate change, clean air and water, our public lands, coastal protections, and environmental justice.

If you’re up for the challenge of figuring how to reach target audiences about the important work of SELC, we want you to be part of our team. You will oversee the implementation of all our marketing efforts, from brand awareness campaigns and new strategic partnerships to digital outreach. You will think about how the organization should introduce itself to new audiences and strengthen our connections with our existing supporters, through marketing collateral, at events, and efforts such as our Above and Beyond campaign. You will strategize how to reach decision makers, potential advocates, and new supporters. You will work with our creative team to help them act as a brand guardian, ensuring we have messaging and brand consistency across assets. Your days will involve working with our creative team on new advertising concepts, writing website copy about how to support our climate work, and developing marketing campaigns and reaching out to media to promote our Reed Environmental Writing Award or the launch of the latest season of our Broken Ground podcast.

We are reimagining and reinvesting in our marketing efforts and we want your new thinking and creativity to help lead the way. We have recently restructured our marketing team so this is a new position, and you will be working closely with our communications team to develop project workplans and bring your marketing ideas to fruition.

This is a full-time position reporting to the Director of Communications. This position can be based in our Charlottesville headquarters office or Atlanta office.

About SELC:  With nine offices across the region (Charlottesville, VA; Chapel Hill, NC; Atlanta, GA; Charleston, SC; Washington, DC; Birmingham, AL; Nashville, TN; Asheville, NC; and Richmond, VA), SELC is widely recognized as the Southeast’s foremost environmental organization and regional leader. SELC works on a full range of environmental issues to protect the South’s natural resources and the health and well-being of its people. Although its regional focus is the Southeast, much of its work is national in scope and impact. 

SELC works in Congress and state legislatures to inform environmental laws; in regulatory agencies to implement environmental laws and policies; and in the courts to enforce the law, stop the worst abuses, and set important precedents. The organization works collaboratively with more than 100 national, state, and local groups to enhance their efficacy and achieve common conservation goals. It currently has a staff of more than 130 individuals, with 80 attorneys, including some of the nation’s leading experts in their respective fields. Additional information is available at

SELC believes that a broad range of ideas, life experiences, and backgrounds enriches our workplace, drives innovative thinking, and attracts highly talented people who seek a work environment that values the unique contributions of individual team members. We are eager to welcome new team members who share this belief. We still have much progress to make, but our goal is to create and maintain a staff that, at every level, reflect the rich racial and cultural diversity of the communities where we work and the clients that we serve. SELC is an Equal Opportunity Employer and committed to fostering a transparently inclusive workplace environment. We are looking for people to join us in this effort. Persons of all backgrounds—including people of color, women, people with disabilities, veterans, and LGBTQ candidates—are strongly encouraged to apply.
