Read the job description
Our 75th Anniversary Season begins in the Fall 2022. The student worker would be supporting the marketing efforts focused on our 75th year. The Marketing and Communications Assistant works with the executive director on a broad range of areas, including (but not limited to) marketing, media relations, event planning and promotion, administrative support and special projects as assigned. The student worker will specifically be responsible for creating marketing materials for PBC social media, emails, ads, fliers (with our graphic designer) and other methods of communicating our 75th anniversary milestones and events with our greater community. We have some excellent written materials about our history that the student will use. However, we will collaborate closely on developing marketing ideas together until the student feels comfortable capable of developing ideas on their own. They are also able to work on special event planning, including Sing on September, Sing for Brotherhood, 1947 Legacy Society and our Fall Concerts.

Meet the supervisor
I have had the pleasure of working in a number of positions from the public sector to the nonprofit sector. This have given me a wide range of supervisor experiences from which I have developed my own. I am an educator at my core and as a supervisor, see my role as one of support, to ensure the people working with me have the understanding and tools they need to get their job done well. We are all busy people, but my priority is always responding to the needs of my staff first, so that I am not holding up their ability to get their work done. This would certainly be true for a student worker as well. In today’s world, the new normal is constant change and innovation. At the PBC, that is certainly the world in which we inhabit. As a result, the student worker would be encouraged to try new ideas, even if some of them did not work out. Finally, arts management is hard, demanding work. The hours are long and work never done. As a result, we believe that flexibility is key to ensuring that our staff do not burnout.
