NORC at the University of Chicago is seeking a talented, seasoned communications professional to lead communications and marketing efforts for AmeriSpeak, a nationally-representative panel of U.S. households recruited to take surveys for NORC. The position includes developing, implementing, and measuring external marketing communication strategies; executing specific marketing initiatives for the organization and its services; identifying and capturing revenue growth opportunities; leading communication efforts with AmeriSpeak survey respondents, as well as promoting the panel to potential clients in the commercial, nonprofit and government research fields.
DEPARTMENT: STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS
Strategic Communications and External Affairs supports the entire NORC organization with expertise in corporate communications and creative services, external affairs, internal communications, and project-level communications. We help promote NORC to the public: we work with members of the media to publicize our research projects and our expertise; we support external events where NORC experts present or speak; we publish NORC’s annual report; we maintain the external NORC website, www.norc.org; and we manage NORC’s social media presence on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
AmeriSpeak® is the first U.S. multiclient household panel to combine the speed and cost-effectiveness of panel surveys with enhanced representativeness of the U.S. population, an approach designed to achieve an industry-leading response rate and an innovative sample quality report card. AmeriSpeak has become the primary survey partner of the nation's preeminent news service, The Associated Press.
Developed and funded by NORC, AmeriSpeak randomly identifies Americans—including the country’s hardest-to-reach populations—and recruits them to provide their opinions and insights on a wide range of topics critical to our clients. The outcome is a truly representative picture of America and, thus, more accurate research results for use in statistical surveys.
