About Rebel News
Rebel News Network is the largest online news network in Canada. Since its launch in 2015 Rebel News has been dedicated to telling the other side of the story, and challenging the narrative of the mainstream media.
Rebel News is different because our supporters participate in shaping everything we do, through a mix of online engagement, commenting, advocacy, and events. We don’t just report the news — we participate in it.
And unlike our competitors in the mainstream media, we don’t take any money from the government. The Campaigns Manager would be responsible for organizing and implementing the advocacy side of Rebel News.
Most mainstream media outlets spread editorial opinions through traditional means. At Rebel News we use promote our editorial opinions in guerrilla marketing styled campaigns, through petitions, merchandise, books, billboards, bumper stickers, and lawn sign campaigns. The Campaigns Manager would constantly be looking for new opportunities stemming from Rebel News reports to creatively market our editorial content. After approval, the Campaigns Manager would work closely with our team to coordinate, implement, and execute Rebel News activism.
The ideal candidate would have a strong knowledge of Canadian and American politics, media, and the conservative worldview.
