Faucet and water products company Moen has taken out a full-page ad in the The New York Times and a social push in order to enhance its job recruiting efforts, trying to attract candidates for its newly-created position of water director.
The company is on a nationwide search to find the right candidate to fill the role, which it says will focus on “understanding the emerging challenges and opportunities surrounding water and work to engage the company with organizations in the effort to make each and every interaction with water more meaningful.”
Stated Mark-Hans Richer, senior vice president, chief marketing and innovation officer, Fortune Brands Global Plumbing Group: “While it may seem odd to do a public campaign for an open position, finding the perfect person for this job may be a little tricky. We want anyone who’s qualified and is as passionate about water as we are to apply – regardless of their background. The water director could be an academic who’s studied water issues, an engineer whose career has been focused on infrastructure or an environmental journalist; we aren’t confining the search to our industry.”
