Job Opportunity – Associate Director, Social Media and Campaigns

The Lisbon Council is looking for an Associate Director, Social Media and Campaigns. The job includes the following:

  • Make and develop a family of online products – i.e., video, animation, interviews, blogs, vlogs, tweets, short-form video – to enhance and complement the ongoing content being generated at the Lisbon Council. The output must be entertaining, visually engaging and produced in more or less real time, i.e., while projects are live and campaigns are active.
  • Devise plans for the dissemination of that material, i.e., social-media campaigns, web presence.
  • Work with in-house researchers, managers and others to develop good online and new media content that amplifies Lisbon Council work. The goal is not to create a range of products that compete with existing work; the goal is to leverage the existing work with additional products, including content produced at in-person meetings, interviews with authors and speakers, short- and long-form videos that illustrate key ideas derived from research and drives interest in those publications.
  • Supervise all social media output; write and execute campaigns. A team of three is available for this, but the associate director will direct those resources and report directly to the president. The social media campaigns should be devised alongside of the events and should be executed in real time as they take place and in the days

The winning candidate should have a well-developed portfolio of video and other new-media products, a demonstrated ability to work with and in teams (and to get results). Some knowledge or interest in public policy is important, including the ability to understand key points and develop well-nuanced arguments. And an ability to produce clever, winning new-media products around serious topics – products that deliver their message well and retain the characteristic light touch of new media.
