Here at Nat. Brut, we pride ourselves on our highly inclusive and collaborative working atmosphere. Our staff is spread out across the globe and all duties are performed remotely. Please note that, due to our status as a fledgling non profit, all positions at Nat. Brut are volunteer-only.
Nat. Brut is committed to creating a platform for and by the voices typically marginalized from mainstream literary/arts consumption. For this reason, we favor applications from women, people of color, and/or LGBTQ-identifying folks, although we do accept applications from every demographic.
A bit about us: Nat. Brut (pr. nat broot) is a biannual journal of art and literature dedicated to advancing equality and inclusivity in all creative fields.Our magazine is a broadly interdisciplinary safe space that values marginalized voices, and we promote environmental sustainability in both form and content.
As Business Manager at Nat. Brut, you will be responsible for developing and overseeing the magazine’s fiscal strategy. Ideally, this strategy will embody the magazine’s mission and comprise a diversified array of revenue streams that includes grant writing, advertising, merchandising, fundraising, and strategic partnerships. As a volunteer-based, arts nonprofit, Nat. Brut takes it as a pragmatic given that its endeavors must not only be risky, subversive, and compelling, but also fiscally prudent. We see this reality, however, as an opportunity rather than a limitation. As such, our Business Manager will be encouraged and expected to collaborate with senior staff on both current and prospective projects, products, partnerships, and events. Finally, our Business Manager will be in charge of monitoring and documenting Nat. Brut’s financial activity and periodically sharing that information with the magazine’s Board of Directors.
An ideal business manager will have:
Exceptional communication skills, especially the ability to write impeccable and friendly emails to potential advertisers and donors
Comfort with “cold emailing” and confidence in initiating new relationships
Understanding of the basic advertising ecosystem and brand sponsorships both online and offline
Experience with non-profit grant writing and both targeted and crowd-funded fundraising
Ability to read and draft income statements
Proclivity for playful and unorthodox collaboration
Set of values closely akin to those found in Nat. Brut’s mission and artistic statements
Commitment of 3-4 hours per week
Previous sales, marketing, communications, and/or accounting experience, preferably for one or more arts nonprofits
A glowing track record that showcases your initiative, follow-through, and opportunity-grabbing personality
