It is MFT’s practice to set compensation amounts that align with the successful candidate’s experience. We offer a possible salary range describing the level of compensation we’d expect to offer for the advertised position. In addition to competitive pay, MFT offers several benefits to its employees, including a group health plan, group vision and dental plans, 2 weeks of paid vacation at the start of employment, 14 paid holidays/year, a 401(k) Retirement Plan, wellness and farm share benefits, and other forms of paid time-off. This benefits information corresponds to full-time employment with benefits also offered to part-time employees on a pro-rated basis.
The Outreach & Communications Associate manages MFT’s website and email marketing, designs promotional materials, drafts, distributes and tracks press and materials, drafts and schedules email and other communications, tracks online presence and effectiveness, and supports the visibility of all MFT programs and events, among other tasks. This position can be based out of either of Maine Farmland Trust’s offices, in Belfast or Portland; however, most MFT staff are working remotely during the current pandemic. There is also the possibility that a permanent remote arrangement could be considered.
Salary range: $36,000 – $40,000
