Catholic Extension

Vice President of Communications and External Relations
Catholic Extension
Chicago, Illinois

Catholic Extension was founded in 1905 and established by Pope Pius X as a “papal society” in 1910 with a mission to build churches in America's most rural regions. One-hundred-and-thirteen years later, Catholic Extension remains committed to strengthening and supporting the Catholic Church across the United States.

Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, the Vice President of Communications and External Relations is an integral member of the senior management team and is responsible for the strategic planning and daily implementation of brand management, public relations, advertising, and marketing efforts (to include broadcast development and distribution). This role consults departments on miscellaneous marketing pieces and develops marketing collateral as needed. The Vice President will conceive and implement innovative communications and marketing strategies across all media platforms to elevate Catholic Extension’s brand awareness nationally. The Vice President will articulate a clear vision for how to communicate the essence of Catholic Extension’s mission and brand by guiding the creation of compelling stories about the work the organization performs. This vision will convey the passion and unique niche of the organization and deliver a cohesive sense of the organization’s identity to both external and internal constituents. The Mission and Development teams will be the primary internal clients of communications and external relations support, both strategically and tactically. The Vice President will serve as a strategic partner in executing the community relations so central to the organization’s mission work and in advancing integrated fundraising efforts.

The Vice President will work closely with the Chief Operating Officer to create integrated, strategic plans and corresponding goals for communications and external relations reflecting the larger strategic goals of the institution. S/he must be a solutions-based leader who champions strategic, data-informed decision-making, industry best practices, and an ethos of continuous improvement and transparency. The Vice President will supervise a staff of five, as well as external, strategic consultants for broadcasts and public relations. The Vice President will be empowered to optimize the organizational design/functional alignment of the team in consultation with the Chief Operating Officer.

Catholic Extension seeks candidates who are dynamic, highly-organized, goal-oriented, and strategic, with outstanding presentation and writing skills, a keen sense of organizational diplomacy, and deep experience in communications and marketing. The successful candidate will be a proven leader, manager, mentor, and collaborative colleague who is comfortable leading major initiatives and supporting the leadership of others, and who has a track record of effectively leading organizational change. Candidates must be motivated by matters of faith, community, service, and justice. (Note: Catholic Extension is not an ideological platform or advocacy organization.)
