CAREERS

Community Outreach Assistant

Location: San Francisco Bay Area 

Job Type: Part-Time (Hourly) 

About Winter Consulting 

Winter is a growing leader in Bay Area community outreach and stakeholder engagement striving for sustainable and equitable transportation for all. Our team brings 45 years of combined experience engaging diverse stakeholders—from city and transit agency staff and elected officials to community leaders, business representatives, and folks from the general public. We specialize in reaching voices historically left out of the planning process through our network of CBO partnerships and community relationships forged over two decades.

Our team uses extensive in person and digital outreach, ranging from small focus groups to large panel discussions to public meetings incorporating the latest technologies in real-time audience polling and engagement software. We pride ourselves on making complex information understandable to the public and enjoyable to engage in order to maximize the amount of valuable feedback we receive from our participants.

 

Job Description

With direction from project leads, the Community Outreach Assistant will support staff with in-person community engagement events such as community event pop-ups, focus groups, and workshops. The position will require evening and weekend work, occasional lifting, occasional standing for long periods of time, and local travel throughout the Bay Area.

 

Community Outreach Assistants are expected to be the face of engagement, representing both Winter and the agency clients with which the company has projects.

 

Many of our projects focus on integrating voices and feedback from historically underrepresented communities, so if you are passionate about racial and social equity and have an interest in community engagement, we’d like to get to know you and explore this opportunity further.
