About the position

We’re looking for a community manager who can help build a digital community around a significant global campaign.

In the final quarter of 2022, Oscar-winning production company Off the Fence and Laudato Si’ Movement will release The Letter, a feature-length documentary made in collaboration with the Vatican. The film explores Pope Francis’ transformative message on our common home. Featuring frontline champions from around the world and Pope Francis himself, the film will be a beautifully moving exploration of the power of community and love to overcome the challenges we face.

The film will be distributed via a global streaming service and shown in thousands of Catholic communities around the world. An audience in the tens of millions is expected.

The film is the centerpiece of an impact campaign. By sharing key messages from the film, the campaign will help new audiences join the movement to protect the climate and nature, overcome perceived divides, and help support policies that protect creation and all who share it.

The community manager plays a key role in this work. The community manager will work alongside an incredible team to bring the messages of the film to diverse audiences.

We hope that person is you!
