Senior Vice President, NationSwell Council

New York, United States


NationSwell is a leading social impact media company. We're a platform for problem-solvers, and our mission is to power the solutions and innovations that will move our country forward. We advance the mission through a digital media platform that tells powerful, authentic human stories of problem-solvers and reached 200M people with our content last year; through the NationSwell Council - a special membership community of more than 600 (and growing) service-minded leaders who share a passion for service, for taking action around solutions, and for collaborating and supporting each other -- the Council was mentioned in this recent article in The Atlantic as A Cure for Post-Election Malaise; and, our Impact Studio, where we work with mission-aligned companies, foundations and not-for-profits like Starbucks, Seventh Generation, Comcast, Cisco, Kauffman Foundation, and The Nature Conservancy to support and amplify their social impact efforts through story-telling, digital distribution, and creative campaigns.

We’re passionate about telling the stories of creative solutions that bridge the opportunity divide, advance national service, protect the environment, and make government work. We love our team, too, and show it with competitive salaries, a flexible and remote working environment, an amazing culture, and a strong dedication to our mission.

NationSwell is seeking a Senior Vice President (SVP) to lead and grow the NationSwell Council. The SVP will be a strategic thought-partner on the vision and future direction for the Council; intentionally curate and grow the Council community across the country (and, eventually, globally); optimize this extraordinary community for impact and directly connect the dots among Council members to catalyze collaboration and impact; oversee an outstanding and mission-driven team of eight full-time professionals (and growing fast); oversee the Council’s programming and service experiences; and ensure that Council members’ experience is valuable, special, inspiring and impactful. He/she must have depth of knowledge about - and deep passion for - NationSwell's core issues: education, economic development, the environment, government, national service - and more.

Candidates must understand and believe deeply in the power of community to drive change.

A successful candidate will interface directly with a remarkable group of influencers and change-makers. This is an incredible opportunity for a senior leader to shape and support a unique community of service-minded leaders, to drive enormous social impact and to play a key and senior role at an exciting, high-growth, and purpose-driven company.
