Ready to take on some of the most powerful forces in our society? We’re looking for a Director of Media and Press Relations to join a fierce, smart team challenging global corporations, holding them accountable, and creating a world where all people can thrive.
Why you’ll love coming to work every day
You’ll help change the world by being part of fearless and winning campaigns. You’ll be joining an organization that’s not satisfied with the world as it is—and has a vision for how it should be. When your quest is ending corporate abuse, you can’t be afraid to name names and demand what the world needs. For more than 40 years, we’ve been exposing and challenging the abuses of the likes of Nestlé, Exxon Mobil, Philip Morris International, McDonald’s, and more. We don’t back down, and we run campaigns until we win.
You’ll work with awesome people. Join a team of passionate, kind, determined, optimistic, and solutions-oriented folks. We work hard, celebrate victories large and small, and always have each other’s backs.
You can take on big responsibilities as you go. You’ll thrive here as you develop new skills, tackle new challenges, learn, and grow. We pay lots of attention to building staff leadership, and we provide support and training to help you grow in your role.
You’ll be part of an organization committed to advancing racial equity and transforming systems of oppression. We are deeply committed to prioritizing the leadership of people who bear the brunt of corporate abuse: Black and Indigenous people and other people of color, women, low-income people, people in the Global South, and LGBTQ+ folks around the world. Our unique culture has been fostered by a long history of women at the helm. We are actively focusing on the leadership of our staff of color, knowing we are stronger when the organization reflects the vision of the world we’re building together.
What you’ll do
For more than four decades, Corporate Accountability has moved millions of people to challenge corporate power through hard-hitting campaigns that win victories for health, human rights, democracy, and the planet. Far-reaching media -- paired with strategic grassroots organizing -- is at the core of what we do. Our media program is central to shifting the public climate, making possible change that feels impossible, and ensuring our campaigns and research are getting out into the world.
That’s where you come in. We’re looking for someone to bring leadership and collaboration to our media program. The heart of the job is securing groundbreaking, widespread media coverage that exposes corporate abuse and motivates people to take action with us. You’ll develop compelling communications that shift the narrative on issues from climate change and water privatization to food and tobacco industry abuses. You’ll lead in building and deepening strong reciprocal relationships with campaign partners, reporters, and thought leaders, while furthering our shared mission in all aspects, from campaigning to fundraising. You’ll work in partnership with a broad, cross-organizational team collaborating to craft sharp messaging and then get it out in the world. You will use your imagination and creativity to collaboratively lead a thoughtful media program and the work of the broader communications team. You will continue to build widespread awareness of the organization, our mission, and our 40+-year track record of success in curbing corporate power.
