Communications and Marketing Manager

Re-use Hawai‘i is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization on a mission to strengthen our community by decreasing waste, providing affordable resources, creating green jobs, and (re)cultivating the circular economy.

Every year, we divert an average 740,000 pounds of resources from the landfill through our Deconstruction and Redistribution programs. Deconstruction is a sustainable alternative to demolition where our skilled crews hand-disassemble buildings to salvage the material for reuse. These building materials, along with salvaged furniture, appliances, hardware, and more are sold at our Redistribution Centers for 40-90% off retail value. We're proud to provide an affordable resource for our community while decreasing waste and the emissions associated with the production of new material.

In addition to our Deconstruction and Redistribution programs, we've recently furthered our commitment to the community through our Workforce Development Program (WFD) where we provide sustainable job training to individuals facing barriers to employment.

We're excited to invite passionate, collaborative, and community-minded individuals to apply for this role. We're looking forward to hearing from you.

To apply, please send your resume and a cover letter. Your cover letter should explain your interest in Re-use Hawaii's mission and how your skill set will contribute to our team.
