World Jewish Restitution Organization - Communications Manager

Following the collapse of the Communist regimes in Eastern Europe, the leading world Jewish organizations established the World Jewish Restitution Organization (WJRO) to address the restitution of Jewish property and to remind the world that the time has come to redress the enormous material wrongs caused to European Jewry during the Holocaust. WJRO is the legal and moral representative of world Jewry in pursuing claims for the recovery of Jewish properties in Europe (with the exception of Germany and Austria).

WJRO seeks an innovative, driven Communications Manager to join us in our urgent mission to pursue a measure of justice for Holocaust survivors and devastated Jewish communities. We are looking for a candidate who will be passionate about our work and excited to articulate our positions in a cohesive and compelling voice to our audiences, including government officials in Europe, the United States and beyond; nongovernment organizations; media; and the general public. S/he is experienced in communicating across varied platforms and technologies and able to demonstrate the efficacy of public relations and social media campaigns. S/he is proactive, able to work both independently and collaboratively on a team, and has strong project management skills. The Communications Manager can be based in New York or Washington, D.C.

--Assisting in writing policy papers and other communications to governments;
--Ensuring official communications from the WJRO are complete and accurate, and that style is consistent for all internal and external WJRO communications;
--Engaging in other aspects of WJRO’s substantive work as needed;
--International travel opportunities available, but not required.
--Bachelor’s degree with 3-5 years’ experience or Master’s degree with 1-3 years’ experience in communications, social media and editorial strategy, and content production;
