The League to Save Lake Tahoe (the League) is searching for a highly-motivated Strategic Partnerships Manager (SPM) for one of the world’s foremost conservation/environmental brands: Keep Tahoe Blue. This is a great career move for an experienced communicator or brand builder who wants to have real impact on environmental issues.
Founded in 1957, the League is the oldest and largest environmental organization focused on protecting Lake Tahoe. Our brand, Keep Tahoe Blue, is known throughout the world and is a model for marketing and messaging to protect a valuable resource. The League is a solutions-based, innovative organization that values work/life balance, professionalism, transparency, and credibility. Our team reflects these core values and supports one another to achieve our annual goals.
As a key part of the League’s ability to connect its mission to a growing number of opportunities in and around the Tahoe Basin, the SPM will manage relationships on the League’s behalf while elevating our brand and reputation as the Basin’s leading environmental organization. To do this, the SPM will develop scalable local partnerships that increase the League’s brand awareness and engagement with new customer segments in local communities, while simultaneously positioning the League as a leading authority in environmental conservation efforts, and advancing sustainability by counseling partners to pursue Lake-friendly initiatives. While we are a hybrid organization, because of the nature of this position, we require that this employee be based in the Tahoe Basin.
Reporting to the Chief Strategy Officer, this position plays a vital role in the League’s business development, by building mutually beneficial relationships through the development of processes, efficiencies, and tools to elevate the League’s reach and advance partner impact. (Local marketing activities may include events, community partnerships, brand partnerships, local government affairs, and other culturally relevant brand engagement programs that attract new customers, drive donations, and connect the League’s mission to locals, tourists, and other communities.) Externally, the SPM will be a spokesperson for the organization, building trust with partners and advancing mutually beneficial goals. Internally, the SPM will play the role of project manager, working across the League’s departments (including Community Engagement, Communications, and Fundraising) to manage workflows and ensure deadlines are being met to fulfill expectations of partnerships.
