Responsibilities will include managing media relations and writing press releases, reports, talking points, op-eds, speeches, and other materials. The Communications Director will also handle social media accounts and other forms of online communication.
Candidates are expected to have established media contacts, excellent writing skills, and experience leading and working well with a team. An understanding of minority and Caribbean constituencies is a plus.
To apply, email a cover letter, resume, two writing samples, and a minimum of three references to email@example.com with Communications Director in the subject line.
