People's Power and Light
Renewable Energy Program
Outreach and Marketing Coordinator

People's Power & Light is a non-profit energy consumers' alliance serving Rhode Island. PP&L mission is to reduce the environmental and economic impacts of energy by promoting greater use of renewable energy and energy efficiency through education, advocacy, and cooperative purchasing by energy consumers. People's Power & Light seeks a half-time to full-time outreach and marketing coordinator for its "green" energy programs. Central to this position is implementing a marketing program to promote the use of PP&L's green electrically products, which are being offered in partnership with the Massachusetts Energy Consumers Alliance. This position is an exciting opportunity for an entrepreneurial, energetic person to make a mark in a dynamic new industry which presents significant marketing profession challenges, and also has the potential to create important public benefits.

The Coordinator will be responsible for ensuring that PP&L meets sales and marketing goals over the next three years, as set forth in its business plan. The Coordinator will work with other staff, the Board and Advisory Committees, and consultants to continually improve PP&L's marketing plan. The Coordinator will be responsible for successfully implementing the marketing plan by directing his/her own activities, volunteers, and occasional contractors. It is not anticipated that the Coordinator will have reporting staff, and as such this will be a very "hands-on" position. In many ways, the Coordinator will become the public face of PP&L.

Examples of specific tasks that the Coordinator will be responsible for include:

o Coordinating with volunteers, other staff, and vendors to design, produce and use effectively marketing tools such as websites, brochures, press releases, direct mail and other letters, etc.

o Organize and staff workshops, field trips, tables at events, press events, and presentations to other groups.

o Nurture relationships with existing marketing partners, and establish new marketing relationships.

o Through out, communicate the importance of greater use of renewable energy, and why PP&L's product offerings are the best way for consumers to advance greater use of renewable energy through private action, and ways to support public action for greater use of renewable energy.

o Collecting and analyzing data necessary to determine the effectiveness of the marketing plan and specific campaigns, and developing recommendations based on this analysis.

o Leading the development or refinement of marketing plans, by obtaining necessary information and working with volunteers, consultants, contractors, and staff.

Regular travel around Rhode Island, and less frequently in the Boston area, will be required.

As a small, nonprofit organization, all staff are expected to assist with general administration of the organization (eg answering the phone, occasional administrative tasks, etc.).

The successful applicant will have 3-5 years experience in marketing, and perhaps some sales experience as well. The successful applicant will likely have training in marketing, either through higher education or in-house training programs with other companies. Applicants should be familiar with the organizations, businesses, demographics, and geography of Rhode Island. Although knowledge of energy issues and technologies is desirable, training can be provided to otherwise qualified candidates.

Applicants should be goal oriented and personally committed to and believe in the mission of PP&L. The position will require the ability to prioritize, and strong organizational skills.

The position requires someone who is a strong self-starter, shows initiative, and is effective with minimal direction. The position also requires the ability to work effectively with a range of other players, including volunteers, junior and senior staff both from within the organization and with other organizations, consultants, and vendors. The Coordinator will be ultimately responsible to PP&L's Executive Director, but will also report to and be directed by the Mass Energy/PP&L Joint Venture Manager and Mass Energy's Green Energy Program Coordinator.

The Coordinator should have excellent communication skills: in writing, one-on-one, before the press, and before large audiences. The Coordinator will have to be very effective using computer technology in order to perform the job efficiently. 

Compensation and benefits will be commensurate with experience, and may include a bonus component. This may be a full-time or part-time position, dependent on candidates availability and final determination of need at the time of selection. The full-time equivalent base salary is expected to be between $35,000 and $40,000. Opportunities for advancement within the organization definitely exist, but are dependent on the success of this program, and new programs that PP&L is considering, including a heating oil/Biodiesel buyers' group. This is a new position. 

Hiring Process
PP&L will consider applications on an ongoing basis until the position is filled, will begin reviewing applications on December 1, 2003, and will not consider applications received after December 31, 2003. Email inquiries regarding this opening are welcome at info@no.address Applications should include a resume and a cover letter describing qualifications for and interest in the position, and availability. Applications will be received via postal mail only at PP&L, ATTN: Marketing Position, 11 South Angell St #195, Providence RI 02906. Emailed resumes will not be considered.
