Investing in People. Restoring Land.

We’re looking for a dynamic, self-starter to manage our marketing and communications efforts.

The Marketing and Communications Manager is a shared position between Grounded Strategies and Landforce.

Grounded Strategies is a nonprofit working to improve community health through the process of advancing environmental justice, building capacity, and transitioning land use liabilities into community assets.

Both Landforce and Grounded Strategies are committed to justice in the work we do and in the cultures of our respective organizations.

In a 2020 DEI survey conducted by an outside consultant, Landforce employees cited the organization’s top values were teamwork, commitment to crew members, passion, integrity, and trust. The consultant concluded that there is a “uniquely high sense of trust in the organization,” that employees also felt Landforce has strong leadership that reflects the goals and strategies and their everyday work, that the organization prioritizes a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and that their work was respected, fairly evaluated and that they felt like their ideas and suggestions were used to improve the culture and operations of the organization.

This is a full-time (40 hours/week) exempt position (20 hours/week at each organization). The salary is $40,000 per year plus a generous benefits package. At Landforce the position reports to the Executive Director, at Grounded the position reports to their Director of Operations.
