ProPublica is hiring an interim director of communications to amplify the reach and impact of its journalism from April 2021 through October 2021. The person in this role will be responsible for reaching out to media organizations to highlight ProPublica’s award-winning journalism, coordinating editorial events, responding to media requests, and supporting speaking engagements, staff media appearances and other day-to-day communications needs. Our ideal candidate is someone with proven PR and marketing experience who is passionate about journalism that serves the public interest.
Ideally, you also have experience working with some of the tools we use, including our media monitoring tools (Meltwater), content management system (Craft), email marketing system (Sailthru), events management and webinar software (Eventbrite, Zoom) and streaming video (YouTube Live).
We know there are great candidates who may not fit into what we’ve described above or who have important skills we haven’t thought of. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.
We are dedicated to improving our newsroom, in part by better reflecting the people we cover. (Here is a breakdown of our staff.) We are committed to diversity and building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and ages. And we are taking steps to meet that commitment. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities.
If all of this sounds exciting to you, you can apply using this form. The deadline for applications is March 1, 2021, at 10 a.m. ET
This job is a full-time, temporary position and includes benefits. Under normal circumstances, this position would be based in our New York office, but we’re open to remote working due to the ongoing pandemic. Applicants must be eligible to work in the U.S.
