Engagement Manager

Engagement Manager
Reports to Director of Growth


Role Overview:


Workmatters is a faith-based organization that equips people in the marketplace to integrate their faith and work. We have an aspirational new vision to equip every Christian in the workplace to be on mission to make eternal impact through their work.

We are seeking a customer-centric and growth-oriented Leader who resonates with our vision and wants to be part of a passionate team that cares deeply about transforming lives through closing the gap between faith and work.

We are pursuing the vision by scaling our premier spiritual formation and leadership development program, the Workmatters Institute, to a national audience. The Workmatters Institute (WMI) is a twelve-week course that helps young leaders (25-39) develop a theology of work, make practical application through Executive Mentor Speaker talks, and develop a practical and actionable Faith and Leadership Action Plan, all in the context of peer community. Our scaling model focuses on bringing together three different segments:

  • Advocates – marketplace and ministry executive or senior leaders who believe in WMI and have the means to expand the program through their relationships, influence, expertise and giving.
  • Leaders – people who want to facilitate a WMI class.
  • Participants – people who want to attend a WMI class.

As Engagement Manager, you will be responsible for supporting the mission by developing relationships, partnerships, and other channels to gain new and continued participation of Workmatters Institute Leaders, participants, and alumni nationally. You will execute people-focused strategies to find new customers, increase engagement with current customers, and identify needs from Workmatters customers that our team can meet.

Our workplace culture is of paramount importance. The right candidate will hold herself or himself to our shared values of faith, relationship, excellence, relevance, and diversity.

While we prefer the candidate to live in northwest Arkansas, we are open to considering remote working. The best candidate is the priority.
