Posted by NPL Connects on Friday, November 8, 2019 at 8:00 AM PST
Across the state, Washington has more science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and health care jobs than it can fill, yet our higher education system cannot keep up with the demand for skilled employees. The Washington State Opportunity Scholarship (WSOS) is a unique, public-private partnership designed to address our talent shortage. WSOS fuels the state’s economy by providing scholarships and a continuum of support services to low- and middle-income undergraduates who are pursuing high-demand STEM and health care degrees in Washington state.
Reporting to the External Affairs Director, the Marketing and Communications Manager is responsible for the planning and implementation of the organization’s marketing and communications strategy. As chief content strategist and story teller, the manager will be tasked with elevating the profile of WSOS by upholding brand standards, mission alignment and consistency across all channels. The manger will develop communications to our external partners and Scholars that inspire deeper engagement, commitment and buy-in to the WSOS mission.
