Consumer Reports (CR) is an iconic institution in the middle of an ambitious transformation to deliver its historic mission in exciting new ways, including helping employees play a critical role in creating the CR of the future.
To do so, the organization is seeking a communications expert to develop and deliver communications programs that increase employee engagement and commitment to CR, help employees tell the CR brand story, drive employee use of and value from internal communications platforms to support a collaborative culture, and drive the acceleration and adoption of various organizational initiatives.
The role requires superior writing skills, in depth knowledge and experience with social media channels as an employee engagement tool, and someone who has keen interest in the evolving communications landscape and how to utilize the latest communications tools, tactics, and messaging.
For more than 80 years, people have trusted Consumer Reports to work for their interests and help them make informed decisions. The advocacy division of Consumer Reports directs our efforts to secure strong pro-consumer policies and practices in government and across industries. We have won important victories for consumers to ensure that the cars, food, and other products we buy are safe, raise the standards for financial services, and improve health and well-being.
Today, consumers are facing a whole new set of challenges in a digital marketplace where tech companies hold the power to shape people's lives. Big tech companies are leveraging their size and reach to introduce business models that limit choice, avoid addressing the harms posed by their products and services, and use people's data without their understanding, consent, or control.
We work directly with our 1 million-plus activists for strong consumer protection laws in Congress and the states and to expose corporations that do wrong by their customers—and to encourage companies that are heading in the right direction.
Consumers help us identify the biggest problems and challenges in the marketplace so that we can put our experts on the case. We think about what a better system would look like and who could make the key changes to get us all there. And, we launch campaigns to raise consumer voices – together with consumers, we get results.
We're looking for an advocate who has an interest in putting consumers first and is familiar with the novel challenges posed by large platforms including Big Tech and telecom companies in the digital marketplace.

At Consumer Reports, we're building a diverse workforce that reflects our society, embraces new ways of thinking, celebrates a wide breadth of experiences, and reflects all of the audiences we serve. Inclusion means valuing the uniqueness that each staff member brings by creating an environment where everyone is welcome.
