Description:

Summary

With Americans facing an increasing onslaught of news and media content, it has never been more important to amplify progressive policies and build up the necessary communications infrastructure to break through the noise and reach key audiences—and CAP Action is committed to leading the way.

American Progress has an immediate opening for a Rapid Response Manager to join the CAP Action War Room. The Rapid Response Manager should have a keen understanding of how content gets disseminated across digital platforms, how to quickly and effectively draft and produce content that is tailored to and can break through in a fast-paced news cycle, identify rapid-response engagement opportunities, and execute on multifaceted digital communications campaigns.

Strong applicants for this position are highly-organized and detail-oriented with strong writing and communications skills as well as finely tuned digital instincts. American Progress is looking to hire someone who can do a lot more than copy and paste talking points into tweets or email drafts. This person should be excited by the challenge of producing engaging, compelling content that helps advance CAP Action’s goals and meets target audiences where they are in terms of tone, substance, and platform.

The ideal candidate must be comfortable working both independently and collaboratively in a fast-paced environment where they will need to multitask, set priorities, and quickly produce engaging content. Political acumen, sensitivity to the complexities of policy issues, and the ability to engage with communications and policy experts are musts.
