From Shepherdstown to Lexington Park

Global Financial Integrity seeks a Legal Counsel and Director of Government Affairs to track U.S. and foreign legislative developments in anti-money laundering, corruption, and tax law – and to advocate their interests before Congress and international financial institutions.

Ready for the commute to Shepherdstown, WV? But perhaps the Director of Foundation, Government & Corporate Relations job with Shepherd College is worth the trip. And you would probably move to historic Shepherdstown in short order – at least once you got that townhouse in Gaithersburg or Falls Church sold.

Perhaps you could also reside in Shep-town – or some other picturesque village – if OSI Pharmaceuticals tapped you as Director of Government Affairs; work location is negotiable, and can be field-based, extensive travel between Washington DC and Melville and/or Albany, NY is required. Experience developing and communicating public policy positions/strategies affecting the healthcare industry is required.

Another small-town option – Lexington Park, Maryland: St. Mary’s County, Southern Maryland, Chesapeake Bay, etc. – awaits the Strategic Communications Analyst (search using job ID 01066025) or Strategic Communications Consultant (01068315) for Booz Allen Hamilton. Experience with the military or consulting in a DoD environment preferred and security clearances required for both slots.

The Solar Electric Light Fund has an opportunity for a Director of Finance & Operations (note: pdf link) to serve on a half-time (2 to 3 days a week) basis. Non-profit accounting experience sought, along with experience and ability to help carry out projects in developing countries while dealing with different currencies. Sounds like a challenging position with a truly interesting organization. Search led by Slesinger Management.

An anonymous small biomedical research association is looking for a Public Policy/Research Assistant to handle a variety of writing, research and admin duties. Salary range runs from a ramen-noodle-subsisting $30k to a Bud-and-burger $45k.

We may be too late to the game with this Information Solutions Communications Executive job with BAE Systems – it shows a Jan. 9 posting date in their system. However, you may be just the person BAE is waiting for to help provide highly strategic and senior counsel, including enhancing and establishing relationships with opinion leaders and influencers.

The American Mental Health Counselors Association seeks a Director Public Policy and Legislative Affairs to track federal & state legislation, participate in coalitions and committee, and develop/maintain effective working relationships with internal and external parties – which we are guessing includes Congress & staff.
