Communications Associate

What you can expect:
  • Colleagues who are as committed to moving the needle as they are to creating a fun and collaborative team environment with partners and clients from all over the advocacy landscape. 

  • Room to be creative, entrepreneurial and innovative.

  • Opportunity to evolve and redefine your role as the job and organization changes. 

  • A little team that packs a big punch on the hottest issues of the day.

In this role you'll be expected to:
  • Build relationships with state and national reporters who will come to view you as a resource. 

  • Monitor news coverage to identify timely hooks and/or rapid response opportunities for our clients that either add to the story or put it in proper context.

  • Develop media lists and other materials such as pitches, letters-to-the-editor, op-eds, and background memos. 

  • Leverage social media platforms for added attention and traction to our clients and their work.

  • Engage with partners and allies to develop creative and strategic ideas for maximizing exposure and impact of their materials. 

  • Conduct independent research and analysis for the purposes of developing compelling story angles and informing broader campaign strategies.

  • Help keep our team organized -- tracking tasks across projects and keeping reporting materials up to date.

About you: 
  • 2-3 years prior experience in a communications role, ideally working for or on behalf of non-profit organizations or advocacy campaigns.

  • You want to prioritize your career around having the greatest positive impact on political and advocacy outcomes, more so than building your own public profile. 

  • Interested in the overlap between media, advocacy, and politics, with insight on the influences shaping climate change policy and/or anti-democracy initiatives. We are in the weeds on the details with our clients. 

  • Experience building media lists, pitching reporters, writing opinion pieces, and/or news articles, using social media platforms on behalf of others.

  • Fluency in juggling multiple projects, issues areas and tasks at the same time.
