Summary: Mission Partners, a Certified B Corp and women-owned social impact and communications consultancy, seeks candidates interested in a full-time Communications Manager position to serve as account lead and project manager for Mission Partners clients. We are especially interested in applicants with prior full-time agency experience; experience working at the intersection of public relations, philanthropy, and public policy; and a demonstrated commitment to racial justice. Experiencing working on issues of democracy, journalism, and civic issues is a plus.

Duties and Responsibilities
This position will lead on strategy, development, and execution of client projects, including but not limited to primary and secondary research (gathering, analyzing, and reporting on outcomes and insights), writing, and project management. This manager will work across various projects, leveraging skills in writing and editing, coordination of campaign project plans, and research.


  • Writing and editing across platforms
  • Working with internal and client subject matter experts, crafting overall communications strategies, message frameworks, and campaigns that are culturally competent and inclusive
  • Implementation of communications campaigns
  • Manage day-to-day team and client relationships, serving in a project manager role, anticipating questions and needs, and solving problems with account teams, while thinking strategically about how to solve client communications challenges.
  • Strategically guide and develop client communications tools, including thought leadership, impact reports, brand guides, annual reports, and other communications needs as outlined in each client project.
  • Work closely with vendors—graphic design, social media, web, or videographers—to ensure client and agency campaigns are executed creatively, on time, and within budget.

Mission Partners is a service-based business that uses communications tools to help our purpose-driven clients achieve their fullest potential. We expect our team members, including contractors, to take care and thought when working and interacting with clients, considering our work’s larger objectives and performance metrics and the client’s needs.

We leverage the Management Center’s project management model to ensure transparency and accountability in managing projects. As an internal working group, we will often meet once a week, at a mutually agreed upon time, to ensure that every team member clearly understands the objectives and that we collaborate to advance the client’s needs. We appreciate keeping the lines of communication between our teams open and active.

Additional expectations for this position include the following:

  • A stated and proven commitment to Mission Partners’ company values.
  • Intellectual curiosity and a demonstrated ability to work collaboratively.
  • Demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Minimum six years of experience working directly in public affairs, issues management, campaign development, or public relations for mission-driven organizations or causes.
  • Prior full-time experience working in a communications/marketing agency, public affairs firm, or similar environment.
  • Certification or degree in communications, business, journalism, or related field.
  • Fluency with digital project management and communications tools (e.g., Asana, Microsoft Teams, Google Suite) and a proven track record of success in advancing marketing/communications goals.
  • Proven ability to oversee projects from initial strategy through tactical implementation.
  • An understanding of inclusive and plain language practices and an ability to write across various channels and mediums.
  • Strong organizational skills, familiarity with project management, and experience working in a client services environment.
  • Positive attitude and a team player.
  • Ability to manage and prioritize competing demands.
  • Comfort working in a fully remote environment; experience leading virtual, on-camera meetings with clients
