Client-side job opening: Integrated Communications Coordinator

Dairy West, the voice of Idaho and Utah’s dairy industry, is looking for a junior-level Integrated Communications Coordinator. From the job information shared with us:


The Integrated Communications Coordinator for Dairy West promotes dairy products directly to consumers on behalf of Idaho and Utah farmers. The coordinator will create content, analyze metrics and help develop engagement strategies for multiple brands, with a particular emphasis on social media marketing. Other opportunities for the coordinator position include digital storytelling, photography and videography, and website management.

Ideal candidates for this position will have a foundational understanding of marketing or public relations principles and a desire to develop their professional skills through training and mentorship. This position is particularly well-suited to recent college graduates or professionals new to their career. Dairy West works on behalf of Idaho and Utah’s dairy farm families to inspire trust in dairy farming and build consumer demand for high-quality, nutrient-rich dairy products. In all pursuits, the Dairy West team upholds its core values of Trust, Action and Stewardship and its vision to catalyze positive change.

This is a full-time, non-exempt position with a salary based on experience and a competitive benefits package. This position prefers a bachelor’s degree, ideally in communications, public relations, marketing or a related field. Professional or internship experience in a related field is preferred.

While out-of-state applicants are welcome, the Integrated Communications Coordinator will be required to live in the Treasure Valley area after the start date. Some travel in the region will be required. Dairy West offers employees a flexible work schedule.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and resume to Vice President of Integrated Communications Josh Loftin at jloftin@dairywest.com.
