About you

You’d be a great fit for this position if you are creative and collaborative, interested in both communication strategy and content creation. We’re looking for someone who is excited about connecting people with Washington’s maritime heritage through storytelling and place-based marketing. The ideal candidate should be an excellent writer with graphic design skills (photography also a big plus!) and an eye for finding compelling stories from throughout a wide region. Maritime Washington is a new program with a big mission, so we’re looking for someone who can take ownership over projects, stay organized, and consistently meet deadlines—all while working collaboratively with a diverse range of community members.

About us

As Washington’s only statewide, nonprofit historic preservation organization, the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation is dedicated to saving the places that matter in Washington State and to promoting sustainable and economically viable communities through historic preservation. We work to build a statewide ethic that preserves Washington’s historic places through advocacy, education, collaboration, and stewardship. We are people-centered, and strive to be inclusive, proactive, empowering, and approachable throughout our work.

The Communications and Outreach Specialist will join the Program Director as one of the first employees of the Maritime Washington National Heritage Area—a new program of the Washington Trust in partnership with the National Park Service. With a recently approved Management Plan, Maritime Washington is officially ready to set sail in its work to celebrate, maintain, and share the unique stories of Washington’s saltwater shores!
