Summary

RESULTS supports a movement of passionate, committed everyday people using their voices to influence political decisions that will bring an end to poverty. Our network of volunteer advocates is supported by a staff of researchers, policy analysts, and legislative and media experts. Our shared goal is the end of poverty. We have affiliates and partners across five continents, and a network of volunteers in all 50 states.

RESULTS is looking for an Associate Director, Communications, to drive the organization’s communications and media strategy. The Associate Director is responsible for strategy and execution across three areas:

  1. Advocacy communications – Driving message and communications strategy to advance our grassroots advocacy campaigns, with a particular focus on anti-oppression, political strategy, and nonpartisanship.
  2. Media for advocacy – Leading a media strategy focused on specific policy objectives and building long-term influence on members of Congress and the Administration.

Success in the role depends on sharp media and communications skills; a keen understanding of policy and advocacy; and a deep commitment to anti-oppression and to the power of grassroots advocacy. The Associate Director should be eager to dive in on leading day-to-day communications, with the vision to expand the department’s future reach and impact.
