Careers At Ghost Writer

We're writing a better human story.  
Ghost Writer was built on the idea that creating accessible, accountable supports for businesses and organizations already doing great work is the best way to impact, uplift and create equality.

By connecting businesses and organizations with the resources they need to position themselves for self-sufficiency, long-term sustainability, and scale, Ghost Writer amplifies real-world solutions.

Ghost Writer’s highly regarded nonprofit professionals represent wide-ranging and complementary skill sets. The resulting consortium of experts allows Ghost Writer to offer its clients inclusive, comprehensive, cohesive marketing and development solutions. Clients gain access to a complete marketing and development team for less than the price of hiring one employee.

Agency Advocate

Our highly effective, successful business model—as evidenced by glowing client testimonials and consistently high returns on investment—relies heavily on the Agency Advocate. 

At Ghost Writer, the Agency Advocate plays the most important role in the business model, functioning as the primary point of contact for the client as well as the coordinator of the client’s services across the Ghost Writer team. Agency Advocates are rewarded with job flexibility, autonomy, and work that is personally meaningful.

Day-to-day Activities

Agency Advocates act as the main point of contact and coordinator for their assigned business or organization (agency). The Agency Advocate develops an annual calendar for each agency which provides the framework for Ghost Writer’s work and defines expectations. Evolving priorities, funding opportunities, and other internal and external factors make the calendar a living document; the Agency Advocate ensures it is updated.

The Agency Advocate assigns work, organizes, and updates agency files, keeps the agency informed, and tracks projects in Ghost Writer’s project management software. Ghost Writer’s model depends deeply on shared information. The Agency Advocate must ensure projects are accessible to other team members within Ghost Writer (i.e., uploading documents to shared drives, making sure current versions are clearly marked and easy to find). This sharing of information is crucial to supporting Ghost Writer’s employee model of flexibility, autonomy, and redundancy, while continuing highly personalized services to our agency clients.

Most of the Agency Advocates work is remote, with occasional in-person meetings. Ghost Writer supports remote work with a robust project management software, shared Dropbox and Google files, Zoom and Google Meet, and an online time recording system.

While the Agency Advocate coordinates work across the Ghost Writer team, it is understood that she/he/they may do some of their assigned agency’s work themselves, as they know the agency best.  Since the Agency Advocate has access to the entire Ghost Writer team and all the skill sets that encompasses, a successful Agency Advocate will become familiar with those resources and draw upon others’ skill sets to best serve the agencies.

This position offers a great deal of autonomy, coupled with very deadline-heavy projects and a need for responsiveness to both the agency and the Ghost Writer team. Agency Advocates will be supervised by the CEO.
