We are a small business, located in the South Park neighborhood of Seattle that diverts reusable building materials from the landfill thanks to the hard work of our salvage crew and retail operations. It’s a junkyard meets a home improvement outlet meets an online store meets an antique depot meets a community space. Sounds cool, right? Well, you should also know that the office is in a warehouse, in an industrial park, in a pretty out-of-the-way part of town – the space is way too cold in the winter and way too warm in the summer. We’re also right next to a transfer station - sometimes little critters roam around and the business is in a constant state of movement and chaos. We offer a living wage and some pretty fun perks. It’s also hard work, in a difficult work environment, without a ton of public recognition. But, for the right person, it can be a meaningful job and a creative, rewarding experience.

Second Use is looking for an outreach coordinator/marketing guru/business development expert – whatever you want to call it – a self-motivated generalist who can cover a lot of ground, get a ton done, and engage a whole bunch of people in the process. We need someone who can coordinate an integrated marketing program and develop strategic partnerships with clients, suppliers, and other organizations. Applicants should have experience in developing outreach and promotional materials, planning events, managing programs, building relationships, and coordinating advertising efforts – all while sticking to a humble budget. The position requires a great deal of confidence, openness to learning and innovation, a commitment to the mission of the company, and persistence.

A few skills and experiences in particular would come in handy for this position, and to the extent you have them you should let us know:
Knowledge of building salvage/reuse, building materials and the building industry
Brand development experience
Computer - (MS Office, Photoshop, Filemaker)
Website/Internet - (iContact, webpage editing, social network sites)

If you don’t mind hard work, don’t need a big salary, and love salvage and reuse – please drop us a line by October 25th. Send your resume, along with a letter of interest, to Dirk Wassink: [email protected]
