PR Collaborative is seeking an Account Supervisor!

PR Collaborative is seeking an Account Supervisor to join our thriving policy division. You’ll work with think tanks, foundations, and nonprofits on a range of issues. Recent projects have included a national awards program incentivizing upstream solutions to public health, a national polling initiative to assess voter opinions on food and agriculture issues, and a political ad campaign led by a Democratic Super PAC.

Leadership and management skills are critical for success in this position. You will be leading a lean but dynamic team with one direct report and several interns. You will serve as a day-to-day contact for clients and works in close collaboration with the President and Owner of PR Collaborative.

We know that there will be a transition phase, but as you become comfortable with your role, you will be leading the policy team predominantly on your own initiative.
