For more than 50 years, Accion has helped tens of millions of people through our work with more than 110 partners in 50 countries.
We seek a Manager, Media & Public Relations with 8 - 10 years of full-time professional work experience to drive earned media as part of our communications strategy.

She or he must be well-organized, able to multi-task and prioritize, demonstrate creativity, and possess excellent written, oral, and interpersonal communication skills. The ideal candidate brings an awareness of topics relevant to our work, such as fintech, financial services, financial inclusion, SDGs/development, and impact investing.
