Development & Fundraising Jobs

Regular visitors to this site have probably figured out our stock-in-trade public policy jobs around here feature titles like Director of Communications, Government Affairs Manager, or Vice President of Public Affairs – mainly communications, PR and government relations jobs – with media, web/content, coordinator, analyst, and assistant-type positions rounding out the usual offerings.

One other category you will see represented, on occasion, involves development/fundraising-type positions. While we’ve had some fun describing some of these development jobs as perhaps a little cushy – the truth is that fundraising is challenging work, and certain to get harder in the current economic environment. We don’t usually give these development and fundraising jobs the amount of attention that we lavish on GR or communications opportunities – but we are today, for our industry-focused Tuesday programming:
