Rock Star

The National Women’s Law Center is seeking a Legislative Representative for its women’s health and reproductive rights program. Successful candidate will monitor and advocate on issues related to health care and health insurance, including health care reform, Medicaid, SCHIP and private insurance, and women’s health. Direct legislative experience is highly desirable; JD or Master’s degree is preferred.

The Sierra Club looks to add a Conservation Organizer, Responsible Trade Program to organize support for grassroots campaigns, events and skills training and to generate turnout for campaign visibility events. Just a couple years experience working with volunteers in the environmental movement, political campaigns, or other, similar organizations will get you considered. A caveat: they note that the job is grant-funded, limited duration ending one year from hire date.

The Worldwatch Institute has their sights set on hiring a Climate and Energy Program Director to lead the program, represent the Institute before the media and other high-profile audiences, and of course, for fundraising. Five to ten years in the climate and energy field, including international and supervisory experience, are among their requirements. Apply by Dec. 15.

Women’s Law? Sierra Club? Climate Change? For any of my conservative comrades who didn’t punch their monitor after the first three listings – here’s something just for you: The Heritage Foundation is looking for a new Vice President of Communications to guide their marketing/communications strategy across multiple channels including print and broadcast media. Ten years of communications/media experience, including at least five in a management role, are required. Research, Marketing and Policy Analyst (Microsimulation and Religion/Civil Society) positions are also available.

Humana Inc. would like to hire a Grassroots Consultant to develop, and implement various grassroots programs that engage employees, members, and business partners. Responsibilities include engaging activists/volunteers, coalition-building and database management. Here’s the Humana careers page, if that link proves troublesome.

Roll Call is in the market for a Senior Floor Editor for their GalleryWatch online legislative tracking service. They’re looking for highly-motivated, energetic self-starter folks familiar with the legislative process.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has a spot open for a Media Relations Manager to work out of DC or Marina del Rey, CA (today’s forecast high temp: 66 degrees). Responsibilities include developing global media communications strategy, media outreach, and spokesperson. Proficiency in languages other than English is an advantage. Even better – ICANN’s next Director of International Policy Development can potentially operate out of DC, Marina del Rey, Brussels, or Sydney (sunny and 84) – and their Director of Policy Communications/Information Services posting is also open as to location.

OK – Sydney’s out of the question – how about Morningside Heights? Columbia University's Business School has a desk waiting for a Senior Media Relations Officer to help drive an aggressive media relations strategy to enhance the school’s national and international visibility and reputation. They’re looking for creative, exceptional, and energetic types with a demonstrated track record of media placements in top-tier media outlets.

The Energy Action Coalition is trying to build a nationwide network of young clean energy/climate activists – and they’re also looking to build their headquarters team: Managing Director – Online Organizer – Outreach & Environmental Justice Director positions are all currently open. DC and/or San Francisco-based fellowships are also available.

Rock Star wanted! But don’t get the Guitar Hero out just yet – some anonymous company (the innovative and exciting kind, apparently) is auditioning for a Web Development Rock Star. They’re willing to pay $110k-$140k for skills in web development, Java and XML. Via Washington Recruiter. Did somebody say “keep on rocking?”

Today’s job search resource: the Heritage Foundation job bank – designed to help match conservatives and even classical-liberals with public affairs employers.
