We’re hiring a new staff member this summer to help us meet the growing demand for career education. The nonprofit Portland Workforce Alliance is seeking a Communications and Program Manager.


We’re looking for someone who believes in our mission and understands how effective communications and design can strengthen an organization and help build effective community partnerships.

PWA started small in 2005 and has grown into a thriving nonprofit with an active board of directors and a full-time staff. We work with Portland-area high schools to connect students with employers in virtually every major employment sector, including health care, technology, design, construction, energy and manufacturing.

Today, we serve more than 12,000 students a year through career-learning experiences such as career days, mentorships and the annual NW Youth Careers Expo. Our goal is for students to develop career aspirations and make informed, inspired choices about their education after high school. This work is part of a strategy to boost Oregon’s graduation rate and help regional employers build their pipeline of talent.

This work is also – dare we say? – fun.

Prospective candidates should read our job announcement for details about job responsibilities and application requirements. (No calls, please.) Meanwhile, connect with us on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
