The Rock River Valley Blood Center is proud to partner with the National Marrow Donor Program as a recruitment center for their Be The Match registry and we're currently looking for a Community Engagement Representative.  The Community Engagement Representative develops relationships with many different community groups including colleges and universities, businesses and individual families, and serves as the liaison to our transplant partner organizations.  The recruitment process involves organizing and attending marrow drives, providing educational materials and presentations, answering questions about the donation process, persuading people to join the registry and participating in fundraising events.

This fast-paced position offers a flexible schedule and frequent travel to schools, businesses and other organizations within our territory (a 150 mile radius of Rockford, IL).  To succeed in this role you need to be persuasive, results-oriented, ready to work with minimal supervision, an effective communicator, efficient in handling details and customer service oriented.  You also need to be comfortable working with patients and families who are experiencing a range of emotions connected to their diagnosis and their search for a suitable donor.

We require a high school diploma or GED, but will give preference to candidates with a bachelor's degree in a related field.  Previous experience in recruiting, sales, business development or a related field is preferred and experience in a clinical setting is beneficial but not required.
