Bossed, in Yonkers

We mentioned this Assistant Director of Communications opportunity with our special relationship friends and transatlantic partners at the British Embassy in our super-great cavalcade of jobs on Monday – and we want you to see it again; sounds like a great job – and a very nicely written/worded job description, as well. More opportunities in DC and other locales available – we’ll probably list them out on Monday.

Nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention/eradication of childhood diseases
is seeking Deputy Director to help develop and execute of public health programs, and to conduct outreach to key audiences such as including elected officials and community-based organizations. At least three years of experience in the political field, nonprofit sector, or a corporate communications environment desired.

Internews is an international development organization working to empower local media worldwide. You place on the team could be:
The alleged glamour of the music biz – the cool stuff made by your new employer – the near-Nashville convenience and historic charm of Franklin, TN – these could all come together for some lucky hire as Coordinator, PR/Media Relations with the Artist Relations division of Yamaha Corp.

You could stay a little closer to home as Public Relations Coordinator (search job ID 41833) with at the Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center/Doubletree Hotel in – you guessed it – Roanoke, Va.

Jack Kent Cooke FoundationDirector, Program Development – responsible for developing strategies and tactics that will help propel the Foundation’s programs into the future – Master’s degree in a relevant field or equivalent experience, plus minimum of 10 years of experience as senior management, ideally in a nonprofit organization. Also seeking Summer Assistant, Higher Education Programs.

Here’s the come-on from global technology & communications consultants Strategic Social: We have a limited number of junior researcher and social media positions available. While these positions are currently unfunded we will be looking to hire and promote from the Intern pool.

We’re not confident that even one of you approx. 1,300 folks who visit DCPA+CJ on a daily basis will possess an in-depth knowledge of and professional visibility in the fields of linguistics and language education, along with a doctorate in a related field – but if this is you or someone you know (as those addiction, pharma or class action lawsuit TV ads say), the deadline for the President position for the Center for Applied Linguistics is Apr. 15.

Consumers Union:
The Richmond-based Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission provides rigorous analytic and evaluative research for the independent oversight function of the Virginia General Assembly. They are looking to add entry-level Legislative Analyst hires - at least one year of applied research experience and a masters or doctoral degree in a public policy-related discipline preferred.

National Wildlife Federation
CQ/Roll Call GroupEvents Coordinator – a demanding position and requires someone with extraordinary ability in event execution.

Kaiser Family Foundation:
“Guess what – I’m with the DEA now” – a line best delivered just when your best pal or some casual acquaintance is lighting up something other than a Marlboro Light. “Yep, I’m the new part-time Admin Assistant for the Deep Earth Academy program with the Consortium for Ocean Leadership.” Expect your friends to punch you.

National Public Radio
seeks a seasoned development professional to fill the newly-created position of Executive Director, Development.
