Description

About Community Change and Community Change Action:

Community Change builds the power and capacity of low-income people, especially low-income people of color, to lead powerful and dynamic movements for social change. 

Our vision of a better world centers the leadership of impacted people of color to move our work on immigrant rights, economic justice, and racial equity, including a focus on jobs and housing, early childhood care and education, income supports, and immigration reform.

This position also supports Community Change Action, an affiliated 501(c)(4) advocacy organization. While motivated by the same core values – equity, inclusion, and justice – Community Change and Community Change Action operate independently of one another and each organization has its own board of directors.

Position Description:

The Social Media Manager will play a pivotal role in uplifting Community Change and Community Change Action’s work with key audiences and increasing our visibility online. This position will help drive the narrative on our economic justice campaigns, develop and execute strategic social media plans that generate exposure, amplify our partner organizations, build community, and mobilize individuals to action. 

Social media is one of the most public-facing parts of an organization’s work. The Social Media Manager will own this role by creating content across audience demographics, managing the quality control of our pages, and identifying new ways for us and our allies to show up online.

Principal Responsibilities:

  • Manage content across all platforms and serve as a quality controller for content on the pages, including drafting all social media copy, tagging partners, and scheduling posts; coordinate across teams when necessary and in rapid response moments.  
  • Communicate policy and breaking news to different audiences online.
  • Help create and execute the strategy of at least seven of Community Change and Community Change Action’s social media pages to increase engagement for existing audiences.
  • Lead the creation of toolkits for events and key dates. 
  • Report monthly metrics for each platform, and adjust growth strategy as necessary.
  • Represent Community Change and Community Change Action’s interest in external meetings about digital work and how different stakeholders might work together. 
  • Additional duties on the communications team as assigned.

Qualifications:

  • Minimum 1-2 years experience in political or advocacy communications or social media communications.
  • Strong writing skills with some experience optimizing content for digital platforms and the ability to convey our brand voice for various channels and audiences.
  • Experience creating content and strategy for social media pages, including X, Facebook, and Instagram – especially in rapid response moments.
  • Ability to communicate across multiple audiences, including high-level principals and stakeholders.
  • Ability to triage competing priorities and tight deadlines for multiple stakeholders. 
  • Self-motivated to test new strategies, analyze performance, and communicate findings to the wider team. 
  • Comfortable using our remote work tools including Google Workspace, Microsoft Outlook, and Slack.
  • Commitment to social and economic justice, collaborative processes, and the participation and leadership of low-income people and their organizations.
