The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF; the Foundation), located in Princeton, N.J., is the largest philanthropy in America dedicated solely to health. Since 1972, we have been providing funding, assistance, and research for projects and programs to help people, their families, and their communities be as healthy as possible. RWJF is committed to working alongside others to build a Culture of Health that provides everyone in America a fair and just opportunity for health and well-being. This requires removing obstacles to health, such as poverty, powerlessness, and discrimination, and their harmful consequences.

We take seriously our responsibilities, and we pledge to work in ways that reflect our Guiding Principles. These are rooted in equity and influence everything we do at RWJF. Equity, diversity, inclusion, and collaboration allow our staff’s wide range of experiences, passions, and perspectives to enrich our work and strengthen our ability to address our nation’s most pressing health issues. The Foundation offers a collaborative, collegial, and creative work environment. With a career at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, you will make a difference.

RWJF is seeking a director of messaging and content coordination who will work across the Communications Department and the Foundation to ensure alignment and coherence of Foundation content and consistent use of the Foundation’s brand and voice. The director will connect the dots between what we believe, what we say, how we say it, when we say it, and to whom, to support our vision to achieve health equity. The director will work with Foundation colleagues—both informing and learning from their work—to address the wide field of factors that influence well-being, including barriers caused by the intersection of structural racism, other forms of discrimination, and the social conditions that impact health. Directors are based in the Foundation’s Princeton, N.J. office.

Successful candidates will have ten (10) or more years of demonstrated experience in communications, preferably with an organization with various departments and a multidisciplinary staff. Experience managing contracts with and working with communications firms, consultants, and external partners to develop strategy and execute on tactics. Ability to assess the audience, the strategic objective, and desired outcome; develop and execute a strategy to drive toward that outcome; and evaluate and measure the success of communications efforts. Completion of an advanced degree in relevant fields of study or a combination of education and equivalent experience.
