CatholicVote promotes and defends faith, family, and freedom by combining timeless principles with 21st-century outreach. We are building the largest Catholic voter mobilization project ever. We are seeking a paid, full-time Southeast Florida Field Director to help achieve our goal of turning out every faithful, Mass-going Catholic in Florida to vote this November.

The Southeast Florida Field Director will work closely with the Florida State Director and two other Florida Field Directors. The Southeast Florida Field Director will focus on the area covered by the Diocese of Palm Beach, and will be ideally located in Palm Beach County or around the West Palm Beach - Port St. Lucie corridor. 

The Southeast Florida Field Director will be responsible for recruiting and training grassroots volunteers and working with them to get out the Catholic vote. (S)he will work closely with volunteers and directly with Catholic voters to assist with voter registration, mail-in balloting, and more.

Ideal candidates will be energetic and willing to work with volunteers and voters; have a deep knowledge of the Catholic faith; and ready to work hard to get out the faithful Catholic vote in Florida. Prior political/campaign experience is strongly preferred, but any organizing experience will help, including in a church setting.

This is a remote, work-from-home position. Applicants can live anywhere in south-central Florida, with strong preference given to applicants in the greater Palm Beach County area. Some travel is required. Travel will mostly take place within Southeast Florida, but a handful of out-of-state trips may be required.

Salary is highly competitive and commensurate with experience. Expenses will be reimbursed. This position will start as soon as possible and continue through November (including pay for the full month of November).

Catholic Vote Civic Action is inspired and organized by faithful Catholic laity.  For this reason, we do not claim to speak for any individual bishop or the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.  We represent the voices of millions of Catholics across America who seek to renew our country and our culture, in full communion with and 100% faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.

  • Friendly demeanor; willing to pick up the phone and talk with volunteers and voters
