Project Manager

Civic Edge Consulting is an employee-owned, women-led business based in San Francisco. We cultivate thoughtful engagement, craft creative messaging, provide savvy strategy, grab media attention, and deliver top-notch events––all to strengthen and improve the communities in which we live and work.

We’re growing our amazingly smart, tightknit team and looking to add someone as passionate as we are about serving our civic sector clients.

In this position, you’ll be responsible for tasking Interns and Partners alike, communicating directly with clients, and problem-solving last-minute curveballs with your teammates.

No two days are the same for our Project Managers, but responsibilities most often include: developing in- person outreach strategies, recruiting, training, and helping manage 10+ part-time, multilingual Outreach Ambassadors, working within client teams to coordinate all logistics associated with community engagement activities, contributing to social media strategy development and execution, leading online content creation, contributing to business development efforts, and more.
