Employer: The Coalition for a Prosperous America (CPA) is a national nonprofit advocacy organization working to reduce the U.S. trade deficit and produce more food and goods domestically. We represent the interests of 2.7 million households through our agriculture, manufacturing and labor organization and company members. We started an online USA-made department store in October 2012. The customer target market is our membership and the general public. The vendor/supplier target market is companies making products in the USA.
Job Details: CPA is looking for a motivated, self starter with appropriate qualifications to manage our CPA Buy American Store, an online department store for American made goods. The primary responsibility will be to develop consistent and effective promotional campaigns in social media, CPA’s member communication and other channels to grow online store sales. This role will work both independently and with a team. This position will grow in parallel with store sales growth. This is a very unique opportunity for the right candidate, because the position will have the opportunity to take our store, our infrastructure, our strong national affinity group, and make a very successful online store focusing upon USA made products.
