Now hiring Field Organizers for the Jana Lynne Sanchez for US Congress general election campaign (June – November 2018).
Field Organizers will oversee field strategy for a region of District 6 (encompassing sections of Tarrant County and all of Ellis County). That territory will be assigned, though the successful candidates’ current location may be a consideration in the assignment.
Responsibilities include, but are not limited to: overseeing the recruitment, training, retention, and management of volunteers in their duties (persuading voters, block walking, lit drop, texting, sign delivery, and events). In addition to managing volunteers in these activities, field organizers will be expected to do these things themselves on a daily basis. Successful work on the campaign comes with a team-oriented work style; none of us is above doing any work, and good ideas can come from all of us. There will be other duties that arise—some that we can imagine, others that will become clearer as we progress.
Although the strategy you implement must be in line with the larger campaign, you are free to develop your strategy for your specific region. We run a data-driven campaign, and so will evaluate everyone’s progress based on the numbers.
This work requires long hours, usually 7 days a week. Work is conducted wherever needed (office, voters’ neighborhoods, event spaces, headquarters, candidate’s home, etc), and so regular travel is to be expected. Pay is competitive, commensurate with experience.
Using the Subject Line “Field Organizer application,” please submit resume and brief cover letter to: Elizabeth@SanchezforCongress2018.com. Position open until filled, with priority deadline June 15, 2018.
