This position will be based out of our Washington, DC office, reporting to the Senior Vice President, International within our Public Affairs Practice. The Account Supervisor/Account Director will be responsible for acting as the day to day point of contact for key accounts; developing strategy and communications plans, overseeing execution of deliverables, drafting critical documents (op-eds, white papers, press releases) and managing media relations. The ideal candidate will have previous PR or public affairs account management experience and knowledge of foreign policy, international trade issues, defense and national security. This is an opportunity to advise international clients on communicating within the complex landscape of Washington DC and beyond. BCW has helped support governments and leaders around the world with reputation and communications, counseled some of the world’s top companies on communications regarding complex international issues like trade and tariffs, and helped promote human rights and gender equality policies and communications with big companies, international organizations and leaders. It’s meaningful work that has an impact. International work is very fast-paced and round-the-clock; the ability to successfully and cleanly juggle multiple projects and multitask is critical. While professional diplomatic experience is not required, the ideal candidate understands the complexity of people-to-people relations and is able to exhibit grace under fire.
