Communications Manager

Rebuild by Design is looking for a Communications Manager to join our dedicated and energetic team in New York City. Rebuild is at an exciting juncture as we expand our work from the Hurricane Sandy region to cities around the world. We are looking for someone to manage our communications’ portfolio and design strategic campaigns to support our issue-based work. Whether it relates to water, housing, or community resilience, projects range from regenerating the historic Xochimilco neighborhood of Mexico City to designing tools for community engagement with community-based organizations and the City of Oakland.

This requires a Communications Manager that is flexible and has an appetite to learn about a rapidly expanding field.
