We Love Data Integrity

The National Community Reinvestment Coalition is in the market for a Director of Legislative & Regulatory Policy experienced in representing a highly visible association’s point of view and establishing relationships with Congressional staff and staff from Federal agencies.

The Office of the Federal Coordinator for Alaska Natural Gas Transportation Projects is responsible for coordinating all Federal activities for an Alaska natural gas transportation project. This still-young organization is recruiting a Public Affairs Specialist to help spread the word. Pay: $73k-$113k – job ID OFC-09-01 – apply by May 4.

The Center for Social Media – part of the School of Communications at American University – is looking to hire a Senior Administrative Assistant (search for position number 5427). Pay is advertised as $16.48/hr.

Booz Allen Hamilton always seems to be hiring Strategic Communications Specialist (search using job number 01075121) types. This particular writing/editing-intensive position also requires html and social media chops, and is based in Aberdeen, MD.

They plan to start reviewing applications on May 15 to fill the Director, Center for Health Policy Research and Ethics (search position number F9230z) job at George Mason University. So start building the case that you have the established academic and/or health policy career background, along with experience in public health policy at the state- or federal-level. But don’t bother without having a doctoral degree (of the earned and not honorific variety, mind you).

We know it sounds counter-intuitive, but you don’t have to be the very best applicant to snare an International Policy Analyst position with the Center for Clean Air Policy – that’s because they’re looking to hire two or three of you. But you will need to possess a keen sense of the post-2012 international climate debate, understand political and jurisdictional issues that are at the heart of finding consensus-based solutions in the EU, and have similar experience developing GHG-related policy.

The Ashai Shimbun (circulation: 8,000,000) will pay $33k-$36k to secure services of a News Assistant/Economics. Japanese language is helpful but not required.

The Asia Foundation invites graduate students and recent graduate degree holders to apply for short-term opportunities as Junior Associates in Asian Affairs in their San Francisco and DC offices. Summer ’09 session applications are due April 27; also accepting applications for future terms.

America Abroad Media is seeking a Development Coordinator to assist with the development team’s day-to-day operations and act as the primary researcher for foundation, individual and corporate support.

Search for DC-based jobs with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and you’ll find these opportunities posted since April 1:
Church World Service has public policy and advocacy-oriented Intern positions available – work appears to be focused on immigration/refugee issues. Full time (36 hours per week), apply by Apr. 30.

The Manager of the Development Database at National Public Radio is responsible for the maintenance and admin of the fundraising database, and processing/tracking all gifts to NPR. Winning hire will create and implement business policies, processes, and procedures to ensure an exemplary level of data integrity. We love data integrity.*

Here’s one that would have fit right in with yesterday’s lobbyist/government relations issue: Director of Government Relations with the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates – an organization of attorneys, advocates, parents, and others dedicated to protecting educational rights of children with disabilities. Must be able to telecommute and work flexibly and independently via internet from a home office in the DC area.

The Design-Build Institute of America is seeking a Vice President of Advocacy and External Affairs to maximize the messaging clarity, impact and positioning of design-build project delivery – like this guy is doing.

The Loudoun Education Foundation raises funds in the private sector to support programs for students and teachers in the Loudoun County Public Schools that are not underwritten by tax dollars. How about serving as their Executive Director, on a part-time basis, for $15k a year?

Today’s job-search tool – the Union Jobs Clearinghouse – bringing you opportunities with labor organizations in DC and around the country.

* We really do. No joke. We're not kidding.
