About the Job
The Communications Manager will articulate and amplify the GIIN’s public narrative and drive communications plans against key initiatives for the organization and impact investing industry at large. With a focus on elevating and building awareness for the GIIN’s brand and thought leadership, the ideal candidate is an effective and strategic storyteller who knows what messages will grab press attention.
Reporting to the Director of Communications, this role is equal parts strategic and creative, self-starter and team player, curious and resourceful. You’ll join a communications and marketing team of storytellers and strategists – all passionate about and committed to building a future where impact is embedded in all investment decisions and impact investing is an option for everyone.

This position will be based in our New York City office with significant remote work flexibility offered through the GIIN’s hybrid in-person/remote work model. Candidates must possess valid authorization to work in the United States that does not require employment visa sponsorship.
The GIIN is committed to pay equity. The salary range for this role is between $67,000-$82,000, with exact salary depending on experience, with an excellent benefits package.
We aim to offer competitive salaries and benefits and are committed to equity, trust, and transparency in compensation. Basing compensation on someone’s willingness and ability to negotiate or on their prior salary leads to wide inequities and bias in how people are paid, particularly for groups experiencing historical oppression. Therefore, we do not ask for prior pay history from our candidates and our offer-making process is negotiation-free for salaries and benefits.
We determine the best possible salary offer based on relevant experience and extent to which candidates demonstrate the competencies for the role during the entire hiring process. The GIIN also uses our annual performance evaluation process at the end of each year to determine raises and promotions.
