ABOUT THE ROLE

For the first 10 years of New Story, we’ve been communicators with a small c. We’re very proud of our brand, PR placements in prestigious places (Apple TV+, NYT, WSJ, etc.) and how we’ve communicated to our audiences, but we know there’s potential for so much more. Couple this with our organizational evolution from traditional charity-based model to market-based model over the last two years, and you start to see a massive opportunity to own and lead our space as one of the world’s top social enterprises.
