Job Description

Good Mews Animal Foundation
Director of Marketing

About Us
Good Mews Animal Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. It is one of the few virtually cage-free, no-kill cat shelters in the state of Georgia and the first in the metro Atlanta area. Since its inception in 1988, Good Mews has placed over 10,000 cats in permanent homes and is home to approximately 100 feline residents at any given time. We also have a vibrant foster program, HALO program (servicing cats with special needs), provide spay/neuter services to other rescues, and operate a TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) program for community cats.

Mission Statement
Good Mews offers an alternative to traditional animal shelters in the metro Atlanta area by providing a no-kill, cage-free, limited admission haven for homeless, abused, or abandoned cats until placing them in permanent, loving homes. Good Mews promotes public awareness regarding the value of pets, animal welfare, pet overpopulation, and quality human-animal companionship through education and outreach programs.

Position Overview
The Director of Marketing is a highly visible, integral part of the leadership team. This person will be responsible for creating and leading a strategy for the development, execution, and management of all marketing and communications activities in support of the future and mission of Good Mews Animal Foundation. These activities include marketing/promotion of the shelter, its feline residents, and its programs, coordinating and participating in special events and promoting special projects to existing and prospective donors, adopters, and volunteers.

The position oversees Marketing & Communications and collaborates with all other committees as needed. Past experience managing a team of diverse resources is desired. The Director of Marketing will serve as a mentor and leader to inspire, engage, and mobilize volunteers to help achieve the organization’s mission.

The successful candidate will have demonstrated ability to take ownership and initiative to get things done, and be able to work independently with minimal direct oversight to execute job responsibilities.

The Director of Marketing will work collaboratively with the Board, Director of Operations, and relevant Committee Heads to proactively anticipate and respond to changing marketing and communications needs. This individual must have the ability to interact and communicate professionally with colleagues/volunteers and external vendors/partners and community members in a variety of situations. The successful candidate will be an experienced marketing and communications professional and relationship builder who is detail oriented but can also see the “Big Picture”. This person must be fully supportive of the Mission of Good Mews.
