Corporate Accountability International is in the middle of a major expansion of our campaigns and staff and has three new job openings with our development, communications and campaigns teams. 

Our campaigns challenge the dangerous practices of some of the world's most powerful industries. Think Outside the Bottle exposes the truth behind bottled water marketing and defends the human right to water in the face of increasing corporate control. Value [the] Meal challenges the fast food industry to stop driving an epidemic of diet-related disease, and our campaign Challenging Big Tobacco is blocking industry interference in health policies that protect our kids. 

The Managing Director of Development will join a strong team of fundraisers to help fuel organizational expansion. We see fundraising and organizing as the same thing - building public relationships with people and moving them to take action based on shared values.  Everyone on staff is a fundraiser, participating in phone banks to renew and upgrade members and attending one-on-one meetings with members.

We focus our fundraising on building partnerships with individuals through face-to-face meetings, phone calls, direct mail and online outreach. The Managing Director of Development recruits, manages and trains all staff in the development unit, and oversees major gifts, mail, phone and online fundraising programs.  We are looking for candidates who have at least four years of major gifts experience and is a great staff manager.

The Associate Communications Director will manage and engage in a range of communications projects from media outreach to publications and web development.  Recent communications projects have included the production and release of the Story of Bottled Water <http://www.stopcorporateabuse.org/story-of-bottled-water?r=rec>  with the Story of Stuff project which had over 250,000 views in the first week and earned coverage in the NYT blog, Grist, HuffPo and US Today.  This week the communications team has trained grassroots spokespeople across the country in conjunction with the escalation of our Value [The] Meal campaign and the release of an exposé that makes the case to retire Ronald McDonald <http://www.RetireRonald.org> .

The Associate Communications Director will work with the Communications Director to develop strategic communications plans, manage the communications unit, and train staff and activists nationwide in grassroots communications skills.  We are looking for candidates with 3+ year of communications experience and love building relationships with and pitching journalists.

Regional Campaign Organizers are based in Boston and work in major US cities to build a strong volunteer power base for our two major campaigns.  Regional Campaign Organizers recruit and build action committees primarily through one-on-one meetings and house meetings.  Action committees organize actions to pressure our corporate targets, build strong coalitions, and hold media events to expose and challenge corporate abuse.

This is a great position for people who want to make a big impact and are passionate about stopping corporate abuse of public health and the environment.  Ideal candidates will have volunteer or paid experience recruiting and building groups, face-to-face organizing and/or fundraising.

The complete job announcement is available at http://www.stopcorporateabuse.org/jobs <http://www.stopcorporateabuse.org/jobs>   Apply soon.  Interviews are happening now.
