About the Waterfront Alliance
The Waterfront Alliance is a civic organization that brings together a diverse coalition of more than 1,100 stakeholders with ties to the New York–New Jersey waterways. The organization’s mission is to inspire and effect resilient, revitalized, and accessible coastlines for all communities.
Waterfront Alliance is a leading advocate in the New York–New Jersey metropolitan region to reshape our harbor and the surrounding waterways into a shared resource, and to help our coastal communities prepare for the reality of sea level rise and coastal storms. After more than a decade of highlighting the urgent need to protect our coastal region from the risks posed by climate change and sea level rise, Waterfront Alliance has stepped into a new role to build broad consensus around our region’s most critical resilience investments and policy changes, including the execution of a multi-year advocacy campaign.
The communications manager will work collaboratively across all departments to execute a comprehensive communications and marketing strategy that elevates the organization’s mission and thought leadership, increases audience growth and engagement on digital platforms, and garners increased press. The position will also play a key role in helping to implement the forthcoming resilience campaign (a public relations firm will be hired to manage the campaign). A new position, the communications manager role offers the right candidate the opportunity to grow the role and over time build out the communications team. The ideal candidate will be both creative and strategic, producing high quality content to advance the Waterfront Alliance brand and mission. This fulltime position is based at our office in Lower Manhattan and reports to the chief operating officer, in close collaboration with the senior director of programs.
