The vice president will work in a team environment and serve multiple clients’ needs simultaneously.  The successful candidate will develop strategies to meet the clients’ objectives as well as lead and coordinate the work by his or her colleagues to successfully implement these strategies.

Essential/Primary Responsibilities:

  • Provide leadership, strategy and direction

  • Expertise in all aspects of strategic communications, message development, message delivery and proactive and reactive media relations outreach

  • Exceptional judgment, the ability to work with multiple demands, strong project management and organizational skills
  • A sophisticated understanding of how the Massachusetts public policy arena works; possess credibility based on experience/service from working within the related sectors
  • Excellent writing ability with ability to craft and deliver persuasive messaging and related collateral materials, simplifying complex legislative, regulatory, legal or other general issues.

  • 5+ years of work in roles in either public policy or political campaigns
  • He or she will also hold significant campaign experience, a working knowledge of the legislative process and strong contacts in Massachusetts state & local government. However, as critical as this experience are attributes: we seek a person who is client centric, prioritizes well, follows through on his or her commitments, has an intense interest in all things political and governmental, is a creative problem solver, and builds relationships for the long term.
