Reporting to the Global Director of Communications, the Global Communications Manager will effectively communicate our brand and mission, working closely with the director and with an expanding set of country teams (today located in Hong Kong, India, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, Pakistan, Singapore, Spain, and the United States). This is a fast-paced role that provides an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to a growing organization.
Interested applicants should submit a resume and cover letter, and have references available upon request. Please submit to email@example.com with the subject line “Global Communications Manager – Generation.”

The Global Communications Manager will support and lead a variety of communication activities for Generation. You will work closely with the Global Director of Communications and with communications and other colleagues in various countries.
You will ensure that Generation presents a consistent brand and engaging content to our audiences—young people ages 18-29 and also employers and partners—no matter where we are in the world. You will spotlight and amplify the great work being done around the world to support unemployed and underemployed young people. Activities will include campaign management, social media, content creation (including writing, editing, design), general marketing initiatives, and media relations.
This is a salaried position that can be based anywhere in the world. However, you must have permission to work in the United States. At the global level, we are a virtual team, and you would primarily work from home, with occasional travel to Generation locations.
Worldwide, more than 75 million young people are unemployed. But many employers can’t find people with the skills they need for entry-level jobs. Generation was created in 2014 to help bridge this gap—at speed and scale.
We’re building a skills-training methodology that can serve hundreds of thousands, and eventually millions, of young people a year. And we’re building proof that this training creates real business outcomes for employers, and lasting career impact for trainees—so everyone has the incentive to invest in skills. Our goal is to help our students achieve personal and professional success—and fundamentally change their life trajectories. Generation programs prepare unemployed or underemployed young people, aged 18 to 29, for jobs in four sectors: healthcare, technology, retail/sales, and skilled trades.
Today, Generation is active in nine countries—100 cities and 252 sites—with diverse social, economic and labor-market contexts.
