About Conservation Colorado
As the largest statewide environmental organization in Colorado, we work to protect our state’s climate, air, land, water, and communities. We play a unique role in Colorado as our work focuses on organizing communities, influencing decision-makers, and electing conservation-minded leaders. That work includes Protégete, which is focused on building Latino leadership and engagement on environmental issues. We believe that achieving racial, social, and environmental justice are critical to our mission. You can learn more about our mission here.
What You’ll Do

The position requires a thoughtful approach to communications planning and execution across platforms. This role can evolve over time, but you will have these areas of responsibility. Note: The bilingual position will do this same work but in English and Spanish at varying times.

Marketing and communications planning and implementation
In addition to your regular responsibilities, all staff are expected to participate at some level in organizational priorities including helping in certain fundraising efforts, taking part in our election-related activities, and committing to our organizational efforts around equity and inclusivity.
Fundamentally, we want someone who is an excellent writer who has the skills to do that in our context. More specifically, you will have or be most or all of the following:
Compensation and Benefits
The full-time salary range for this role is between $45,000-$53,000, based on a wage analysis across the organization and new staff rarely starting at the top of the range. The additional skill of being fluent in English and Spanish will be factored into the final salary.
We provide high-quality, zero-deductible health insurance and a strong benefits package that includes a SIMPLE IRA retirement plan with a match, at least 35 days of vacation and holidays as well as 6 physical and mental wellness days in your first year, and parental leave and a sabbatical program. Please note that as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, Conservation Colorado employees are not eligible to participate in the Federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program.
All Conservation Colorado positions require in person work of some kind and therefore we do require our staff to be vaccinated against COVID. However, when it comes to being in the office or working from home, we have embraced a hybrid work model where we offer people, in consultation with their managers, some flexibility on where they work based on organizational needs, job requirements, and personal preferences. The organization does not have a set policy for the number of days someone must be in the office and the days required for a specific individual or position will vary from person to person based on the needs of the job. Everyone is welcome to work in the office 100% of the time if they prefer or if their home environment is not conducive to working for whatever reason.
We are committed to building a more diverse and inclusive organization and conservation movement to fully represent and engage all Coloradans and to build as powerful a movement as we can. Recruiting staff that better reflects Colorado is a priority and we encourage applicants from all cultures, race, ethnicity, geographies, political affiliation, sexual orientations, gender identities, and all other identities represented in Colorado or protected by law. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
