Communications Coordinator

The Kearney Center is looking for a Communications Coordinator. The primary responsibility of this position is film, produce, and publish a 1-3min video daily.
This is a full-time position typically between the hours of 8:00am-4:30pm Monday-Friday.

Background Information about the communications coordinator at the Kearney Center:

The Kearney Center is a comprehensive center for emergency services for men, women and families. We provide overnight accommodations and meals. Our daytime services include over 40 governmental, nonprofit and faith-based organizations helping our clients get ID cards, jobs, housing, social security and retirement benefits, health care, and most importantly, case management services to provide consistent help navigating through their unique set of issues. We provide emergency shelter at the Kearney Center for an average of 380 ppl each night. Additionally we operate two other housing programs named Westgate and The Dwellings. Westgate is a long-term housing program with nearly 160 beds. This provides individuals with low-income, or a fixed income, a safe place to live. The Dwellings is a tiny-house community that we are developing with the same purpose. See thedwellings.org.
To capture everything that we are doing, we have contracted with a local video production firm. They will produce 5 10-minute engaging documentaries that will be of national media quality. They will be released in Sept 2017.
We are now looking to hire a videographer/editor/producer to shoot a daily feed to our supporters and new viewers locally and across the country. Since there will be so much video content, our PR advisors suggest that the videos “live” on our website vs. Facebook or YouTube. Probably most our viewers will be mobile users and we need the interface to be simple, intuitive and appealing.

An example:
A new client individual arrives to the Kearney Center in the middle of the day, never before seeking our resources. He is in his 60’s, tragically lost his family about 10 years ago has been living in the woods for the past 7 years and decided today that he needed a shower, a hot meal, shelter and would like to find out if Veterans Administration owes him any benefits for the time he served in the U.S. military. While at the Kearney Center he gets a shower, clean clothes, a haircut and shaves his beard, he hadn’t played guitar in years but was able to jam with the band program that same day, and when he meets with a Kearney Center case manager they find out he is eligible for VA benefits and funding for his own apartment.
Scenarios like these occur at the Kearney Center almost on a daily basis. We are looking for a videographer to be on-site on a regular basis that is able to develop a good rapport with the individuals receiving services at the Kearney Center and the staff and who is available to capture compelling stories like the above and share them with thousands of viewers who then are more informed and interested in homeless issues and more likely to support the cause.

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s Degree
  • 2+ year experience in videography

Job Duties(Includes but not limited to the following):

  • Schedule interviews with volunteers, providers, employees, clients and community members as needed for the stories,
  • Provide weekly schedule of video production plans to Management Team,
  • Work with Case Management department to collect ‘Success Stories’,
  • Participate in daily operations to understand client engagement,
  • Coordinate weekly meetings with the Program Directors at Westgate and The Dwellings cite,
  • Post daily to website and in other media locations as directed,
  • Develop informational videos as needed for company presentation,
  • Facilitate, create, and produce other company productions as needed,
  • Work daily with clients to develop helpful rapport.

Required Skills:

  • Excellent organizational and time management skills
  • Ability to remain focused and calm in dynamic, fast-paced environment
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Demonstrated professional and appropriate behavior in the work place
  • Commitment to practicing the values of dignity and respect with clients, coworkers and community partners
