INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Will Our Children Ever Be Able to Afford to Live in Hawai‘i?

 

There seems to be no end to the rising cost of living in Hawai‘i. The high prices of housing, groceries, gas and other necessities make it more and more difficult for us to live in today’s paradise. But what about our children? If it’s this hard to make ends meet now, what will life in Hawai‘i be like for future generations? Daryl Huff hosts this discussion.

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.
