Worksafe is looking for a Communications Manager to support our mission and help us grow.
Our new Communications Manager will develop and implement communications strategies to support our advocacy work, help organize a health and safety activist network to move forward a progressive policy agenda for California workers, and support our fundraising and development. The ideal candidate is a great writer, an organizer at heart, resourceful, well-organized, creative, tech savvy, and has a passion for workers’ rights. This is a full-time position.
Worksafe is a California-based nonprofit that advocates for the basic right of all workers to a safe and healthy workplace. We advocate for strong worker health and safety laws and effective remedies for injured workers, engage in campaigns with worker organizations and activist networks to eliminate toxic chemical and other workplace hazards, and watchdog government agencies to ensure they are protecting workers.
In addition to advocacy and policy work, we are a support center for California legal aid organizations whose clients face workplace health or safety hazards, suffer injuries, or face retaliation at work for exercising their rights under health and safety laws. We provide legal aid groups with training, technical assistance, and litigation support, improving access to justice for low-wage and immigrant workers, workers most vulnerable to having their rights violated or suffering workplace injuries.
Compensation is commensurate with experience.
