Digital Campaign Manager
Southern Environmental Law Center
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 www.southernenvironment.org.
SELC prides itself on collegiality, teamwork, and mutual respect among its staff and board. We seek to bring these same values to our work in partnership with organizations, communities, and people of all backgrounds that share our mission to protect the environment of the South. The South has a rich natural diversity and an equally rich cultural diversity. To better fulfill its mission, SELC is committed to broadening the diversity of its staff. We believe this will strengthen our organization and our effectiveness in responding to the many environmental challenges affecting the South and its people.

As a Digital Campaign Manager with SELC, you get the opportunity to be an integral part of the communications team working to educate, engage, and mobilize online audiences around a full range of environmental issues of particular importance to the South—clean air, clean water, energy, forests, coastal protections, and land and community decisions. From campaigns to protect clean water or clean up toxic coal ash pits, the Digital Campaign Manager responsibilities range from developing and implementing overall campaign tactics to the creation of messaging and cross-channel content and managing paid media and budgets.
You will work closely with legal and communications teams to develop implementation timelines and build cohesive campaign narratives, and you will work with external consultants and vendors to place strategic advertising aimed at engaging new supporters and mobilizing them to action. You must have the ability to analyze data and a deep knowledge of the KPIs by which to measure the success of digital campaigns.
This is a full-time position reporting to the Director of Digital Strategy, and it can be based out of SELC offices in Charlottesville, VA or Atlanta, GA.
