Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC), one of Canada’s leading conservation organizations, is looking for a uniquely talented Marketing Specialist; someone with a deep understanding of how brand development leads to success.

For almost 80 years, DUC staff and supporters have worked tirelessly to conserve wetlands, water and wildlife. The successful candidate will recognize this opportunity as a career-defining moment, where their combination of experience and career goals align with the needs of a truly remarkable mission.

The Marketing Specialist will be responsible for executing new and existing strategies that directly support DUC conservation and fundraising initiatives. You will conduct, and assist in analyzing, market research to determine supporter and customer requirements, habits and trends. A keen awareness of campaign results, engagement and conversion rates will help shape future initiatives. You have expertise in content marketing for traditional, digital and social platforms. This position will play an integral role in building DUC’s supporter base, meeting new corporate goals and promoting the long-term growth of the company.

The Marketing Specialist will have a healthy understanding of how the world works and appreciates the nuances of not-for-profit conservation work on a national scale. An affinity for the outdoors, and the lifestyles associated with it, will allow you to better understand DUC’s culture. Meeting deadlines is key. Strong project management and the ability to work creatively with colleagues and external partners in a high performance culture is essential.

This position will be based out of our dog-friendly national headquarters at Oak Hammock Marsh, just north of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
