Senior Communications Manager, Rebuilding Trust in Government

Partnership for Public Service
Washington, D.C.

The Partnership for Public Service believes that a critical component of building a better government and a stronger democracy is a better dialogue between our federal institutions and our society. The Partnership is embarking on a new stream of work that aims to rebuild trust and trustworthiness in our government. This new initiative will address distrust using multiple approaches, including public education, storytelling and narrative change, building the capacity of federal agencies, and engaging a coalition of organizations, to make meaningful change in public opinion that will ultimately lead to better civic engagement and a healthier democracy.

Reporting to the Vice President of Communications and working collaboratively with a highly matrixed team, the Senior Communications Manager will play a core role in this ambitious initiative for which narrative and communications strategy are not just tools of change but primary goals of change. They will lead the development of the initiative’s narrative change, public outreach strategies and strategic communications campaigns. The role requires a capacity for collaboration and complex relationship-building and strong interest in the challenges, purpose and future of our most critical democratic institution.

The ideal candidate is a strategic and creative thinker with a proven ability to use narrative storytelling to focus target audiences’ attention on nuanced messages and to develop and execute public awareness campaigns that influence public opinion, motivate action and shift perceptions.

The Senior Communications Manager will work as part of an interdisciplinary communications team responsible for all aspects of the organization’s communication strategy. The team manages the Partnership’s brand and messaging, generates media and publicity for the organization and its activities, develops digital media strategies, produces award-winning publications, manages events and markets the Partnership’s programs.
