Director of Communications | Full Time
Location: 442 Route 2
|A new position for our growing business, the Communications Director will lead the company-wide Communications vision, strategy and implementation for SunCommon, ensuring that the good works and inspiring stories of our values-led Benefit Corporation are shared across a variety of traditional and digital earned media in our distinctive voice that is consistent, inspired and engaging – one that clearly represents the way we roll. With over 6000 customers and a staff of 150 committed employees — SunCommon churns out story content. The opportunity for the Communications Director lies in connecting those stories to the larger narratives that energize our people, inspire external audiences and help us drive the clean energy revolution.
Begun in 2012, SunCommon is Vermont’s market-leader in residential community and commercial solar energy. In the past two years, SunCommon has more than doubled in size, launched new product lines and expanded into New York. That trajectory will continue. Experience leading and partnering in a fast-paced, high growth organization is a must for this role. As we continue to expand, the Communications Director must be able to envision future states, articulate goals and drive communications results through the entire organization.
This position requires a keen understanding of leading communications and public relations across a dynamic, fast-growing company and customer base. We’re a team-based culture, so partnering with the VP of Marketing and Sales and peer leadership across the company is essential to the role. Additional responsibilities include creating and leading executive/founder speaking opportunities, aligning communications on web/social channels, and leveraging video/still photo assets, etc. to ensure we show up in a consistent way.
It also requires professional yet creative writing, identification of and gathering compelling stories, news pitching skills and a keen understanding of the changing media landscape. This will be a really fulfilling job.
