Civic Edge Consulting

Job Description

  • Full-time position, working remotely due to COVID-19 through December 2021
  • Annual salary range of $80,000-$90,000
  • Full coverage health insurance, paid mobile phone, three weeks of paid vacation, and many other benefits

Our company

Civic Edge Consulting is a woman-owned, employee-led communications company based in San Francisco. We work with government agencies and nonprofits across the Bay Area. For our clients, we cultivate thoughtful engagement, craft creative messaging, provide savvy strategy, grab media attention, and deliver top-notch events –– to strengthen and improve the communities in which we live and work. Our largest areas of work right now are focused on transportation, infrastructure, and resilience planning communications and community engagement. In terms of client work, our new Senior Project Manager will work exclusively within our resilience planning area of the company.  

Working towards a race equity culture

As a company, we aspire to transform our work culture to a race equity culture, where we are proactive in our counteraction of racial and social inequities inside and outside of our organization. We recognize that systemic racist structures continue to play out in work structures like ours and that we are in the very early stages in our journey. To guide our process, we are currently undergoing a collaborative company-wide process to develop a Racial Equity Framework. 

A Racial Equity Framework is a lens for thinking about equitable outcomes for all communities and strategies for reducing barriers to social and economic mobility in the work we do and in “how” our work is being completed. Reviewing our hiring process will be a part of the Racial Equity Framework development process and incoming staff now will have the opportunity to engage and shape this work if it is of interest.    

We value, and seek to practice, self-awareness, and are looking for a new team member who is committed to centering racial and economic equity in their life and work.

Are you our next Senior Project Manager?

As our next Senior Project Manager, you will be responsible for working closely and collaboratively with a team working exclusively to design and implement communications and community engagement approaches for sea level rise, seismic risk, and climate change resiliency planning efforts. You also will contribute to new business development for the company and provide other support as applicable. 

Senior Project Managers possess a clear understanding of what needs to happen and when things need to get done at any given moment. We expect our Senior Project Managers to act swiftly, think around corners, and take the lead to ensure the teams they manage are fully aware of project details and that all deliverables meet deadlines, within budget, and exceed client expectations.  

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Civic Edge staff are working remotely through the end of the year. As client needs evolve or as staff express interest, we will work with each individual to secure desk space at WeWorks in San Francisco or Oakland until company office space decisions are made later this year. When in-person, San Francisco’s health and safety guidelines will be followed.
