OFC Outreach Coordinator (TX)
Operation Family Caregiver (OFC) is a unique coaching program launched in 2013 by the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving. The program provides free and confidential support to the families of those who have served our nation and return home with visible or invisible injuries (including post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, and/or other physical disabilities). OFC is delivered by a coach, who trains and empowers people in this new role of “caregiver.” The program has impacted nearly 1,000 families to date and has resulted in reduced caregiver depression and health complaints, and an increase in caregiver satisfaction with life.
The Outreach Coordinator is a part-time position, responsible for finding and recruiting caregivers into the program. Their responsibility will be to build local/regional relationships and identify opportunities to generate leads/referrals to the program. They will recruit referrals by identifying local partners, conferences, media opportunities, and audiences to which they present the program. They will benefit from relationships already established by the national headquarters but will also be expected to establish new relationships with local organizations. This will require interfacing with the military and veteran community, establishing a regular and recognizable presence among spouses and caregivers, and becoming a resource for those communities.
In addition, the Outreach Coordinator will serve as an occasional media spokesperson and coordinate media opportunities and appearances for other RCI staff members. They will also contribute to developing recruitment collateral, social media posts, talking points, and other communications materials to contribute to raise awareness about and generate referrals for OFC.
Each Outreach Coordinator will work with Caregiver Coaches who will cooperatively recruit caregivers personally and will also be assigned caregivers by the national office. Someone successful in this position will be collaborative and work well in partnership with others. Because this position is remote, a successful candidate will be self-motivated and resourceful and should not take rejection personally. In addition, the Outreach Coordinator should have experience or an understanding of military culture.
This is a grant-funded position located in the Gulf Coast of Texas. Employment is contingent upon grant funding.
Bachelor’s degree in a related field (marketing, communications, etc.)
Exposure to and familiarity with military culture
Valid driver’s license
A reliable mode of transportation with insurance
Familiarity and comfort with technology for data collection and measurement
