Unusual working conditions
This position often requires very short preparation times due to the unpredictable nature of issues, the speed and escalation potential of social media, as well as the position being responsive to both executive members and MPRA on very short deadlines. Work can be intensive for an extended period time during a time of crisis or reputational risk.
There are expectations to achieve goals and absorb constant interruptions as additional goals are either added or changed. Social media is a 24/7 medium and work may occur during the off hours or on weekends with information that needs verification or expansion on short notice and tracking down the appropriate administrator can be difficult.
The position requires the ability to deal calmly with complex decision making during stressful and demanding situations.
Weekend and/or evening calls may happen once or twice a month or more frequently during a time of crisis or reputational risk. Like most ME positions, there is an expectation that email is monitored in off hours.
