The Fairmount Park Conservancy brings parks to life. We work with the City of Philadelphia and its communities to steward our parks and nurture our shared environment, cultural resources, and public health. We lead capital projects and historic preservation efforts, foster neighborhood park stewardship, attract and leverage investments, and develop innovative programs throughout the 10,200 acres that include Fairmount Park, six other watershed parks, and more than 130 neighborhood parks and gardens around the city.
The Director of Communications leads the organization’s overall communications, public relations, advocacy, and marketing efforts, ensures there is one cohesive voice across the many programs and projects, and directs the lifecycle of engagement and experience for Fairmount Park Conservancy stakeholders. This role is tasked with raising the profile of the Conservancy to create a wider base of support for our work. The ideal candidate must be highly skilled at working with multiple partners across various sectors and simultaneously leading numerous projects.
