Job Description

We are looking for an outstanding Growth and Partnership Manager to manage an array of digital and text messaging based outreach initiatives. mRelief’s target audience is low-income families and this role will execute digital marketing efforts that identify and engage people who comprise the demographic of the 9 million families who are eligible for but not receiving food stamps. Thus, this requires an innovative approach to identifying and engaging a community that is often not the subject of marketing campaigns.

This is a full-time position located in Chicago, IL and unfortunately does not allow you to work remotely. As soon as you start at mRelief, you will play a critical role in driving awareness about how families can apply for social services in the most affirming way possible. This position will report to the Executive Director.

Women and Minorities encouraged to apply.
