Communications Manager

Join an organization at the forefront of health advocacy across the nation.

Community Catalyst, a national advocacy organization, has been giving consumers a voice in health care reform for two decades. We provide leadership and support to state and local consumer organizations, policymakers and foundations that are working to guarantee access to high-quality, affordable health care for everyone. Our contributions, which range from policy analysis and strategic assistance to managing national campaigns, enable consumer groups to provide leadership in the hard work of transforming the U.S. health care system. Since 1998, in states and communities across the country, we have been a catalyst for collaboration, innovation, and action in health care reform. 


The Communications Manager will be responsible for providing strategic communications counsel to two Community Catalyst projects: Together for Medicaid (TFM) and Outreach, Education and Enrollment (OEE) and support Community Catalyst’s communication strategies and systems. Both of these initiatives have a particular emphasis on mobilizing or reaching populations that have been left out or behind when it comes to increasing access to health insurance coverage in our country. One project in particular focuses on advocacy campaigns in the states that have not yet expanded Medicaid, and the person in this role would be responsible for messaging and storybanking work that would lift up the voices of people in the Medicaid coverage gap, who are disproportionately low-wage workers of color. We work closely with the initiatives’ national partners to engage in outreach to Asian and Pacific Islanders, people who identify as LGBTQ+, immigrants, people with disabilities, Black communities, Arab/Arab-American communities, Latino/a/X/e communities, and the intersectional identities therein.


This is a full time grant-funded position that will begin immediately. 



The Communications Manager’s supervisor of record will be the Associate Director of Communications, who is also the Campaign Director for Together for Medicaid (TFM).  However, the Communications Manager will work closely with the Communications Director and will be a member of the Communications Team.
