    I'm sad to announce that, after an all too brief tenure in this role, Jeffan is stepping down from the Director of Marketing position. His enthusiasm and creativity in this role will be sorely missed, and we wish him the best of luck moving forward. :hug

    As such, we are now hiring for a replacement- please see the details below!

    The Director of Marketing is an Executive position and as such will have all responsibilities inherent in that position, such as working with other Directors and Officers, providing counsel to other Executives when asked, and managing the Department of Marketing. While this role interacts a great deal with its peers, it also requires a great deal of self sufficiency and motivation with regards to the promotion of our community to non- members through various formats. (Social media, in person events, social networking, etc.) The Director of Marketing reports directly to the Keeper of the Chronicles.

    Responsibilities:
    • Provide counsel to the other Executives as needed.
    • Handle any human resource issues for the Department, including staff/administrator reviews, selecting and replacing any staff/administrators, complaints, etc.
    • Keep Officers updated on all projects and issues in the Department via email.
    • Collaborate with Directors and Officers to develop and maintain a Marketing plan for the overall community to reach non-members that might be interested in joining.
    • Collaborate with Directors and Officers to develop and maintain visual aspects of the site and community via the graphic design team. Examples of this include Ajah and Company logos, merit badge icons and graphics, events programs, events logos, program advertisements, overall site design, Chain of Command graphics, etc.
    • Manage and interact directly with the following teams that will report to this role:
      • Tar Valon Times: editor, assistant and content team
      • Social Media Manager & Tower Voice team
      • Graphics Development team
    Requirements- As always, if you feel you are close to the requirements listed but not 100% there, please apply anyway.
    • Must currently be: a Senior Member with at least one year good standing as a Senior Member, have held Senior Membership in good standing for at least one year prior to applying, or at least one year relevant RL experience in a similar role along with at least one year in good standing on the site.
    • Must be able to dedicate at least one year to this position. We understand that things come up and sometimes it's not possible, but if you don't think you will be able to fulfill the duties of this position for at least a year, please seriously consider whether or not you should apply.
    • Must be willing and able to work 10-20 hours a week on this position. Marketing is an extremely busy Department with often critical deadlines for projects. A strong presence in the Marketing forums specifically is required, as it is the primary hub for project coordination in the Department.
    • Strong grasp of visuals in graphics or visuals, with the ability to maintain consistency in the TarValon.Net Branding.
    • Must be able to manage both people and projects; must be willing to step in and finish projects yourself as necessary.
    • Must have creativity and a willingness to try new things.
    • Must be diplomatic and discreet.
    Experience with the following is a plus but not required:
    • Prior experience in the Department of Marketing
    • Familiarity with Wordpress, Discord, PayPal Here, Photoshop/Illustrator
    • Working experience with multiple communication methods- forums, IRC, WhatsApp, or other applications used to coordinate communications within a team
    • Using CafePress, Twitter, Facebook, etc
    If you are interested in applying for this position, please email amyrlin@tarvalon.net and keeper@tarvalon.net no later than June 22nd, 2019. Please put APPLICATION - DIRECTOR OF MARKETING - YOURNAME as your subject line. Please indicate how you meet the requirements above, why you are interested in the position, any ideas you have for the department and a link to your portfolio. If you have a resume you believe would be helpful to us, you are welcome to include it.

    Good luck to all the applicants!
