This is an exciting opportunity to join Turnaround’s Marketing and Communications team at a pivotal moment. The Manager, Marketing and Communications is the second-in-command for Turnaround’s marketing and communications shop, a team whose success is absolutely critical to achieving the organization's goals. You will be a force multiplier for the Director, Marketing and Communications as we dive into interesting and impactful projects including redesigning our website, reimagining our core messages, building up the following for our podcast and productizing two decades of knowledge. The ideal candidate is a digital marketing and communications whiz with deep and broad skills, including writing and editing, graphic design, and digital production, in addition to bringing knowledge of the national education landscape and a deep understanding of creating culturally-competent content.

You will have opportunities to work closely with the organization’s leadership, including our Founder, Pamela Cantor, M.D., and other national thought leaders.
When you have 29 children sitting in front of you who have emotional needs, who have family issues, who have more problems than an adult could handle, and you're trying to get them to want to learn, that is an extreme challenge that I don't think many teachers are prepared to take on.Edel CarolanP.S. 85 Great Expectations, Bronx, NY
