The Century Foundation (TCF), an independent progressive public policy think tank, seeks an energetic and passionate Communications Manager or Communications Director to help boost the impact of our research nationwide. Serving as TCF’s chief press secretary and media pitcher, the Communications Manager/Director will increase media attention for TCF's research and experts, elevate TCF’s reputation, and help coordinate national communications efforts.
Reporting to the Vice President of Communications, the Manager/Director will proactively pitch TCF’s research and experts to reporters and thought leaders, spearhead congressional outreach, help manage TCF’s social media presence and, at Director level, supervise TCF’s Media and Events Coordinator.
This position is based in TCF's New York office, however for the right candidate, we would consider relocating this function to D.C. In either case, the ideal candidate will have an established network of reporters, producers, opinion leaders, advocates, and congressional staff in the nation’s capital.
The Communications Manager/Director should be comfortable providing high level advice to senior staff and experts, but also willing to jump in to get the job done.
