Director of Business Support
Full-Time

 

Hawaiʻi’s only locally owned and nonprofit statewide television system, PBS Hawaiʻi, is seeking a savvy, mission-driven sales executive to retain and grow sponsorships of our quality programming.

 

This position requires a creative approach, as sponsorship messages on PBS Hawaiʻi are understated and briefer than in commercial media, and appear in a calm, uncluttered media environment. Sponsors may be businesses, individuals, foundations, government and fellow nonprofits.

 

The Director oversees the full account portfolio, reports to the Vice President of Advancement, and is an important voice in setting rates.

 

Ideal candidate provides excellent service to current supporters and develops connections leading to new sponsors. Responsible for crafting sponsorship proposals, coordinating ad production, and working with support staff on invoicing and scheduling.

 

The successful applicant is organized, outgoing and eager to champion PBS Hawaiʻi’s mission of advancing learning and discovery through storytelling. Bachelor’s degree or relevant success required.
