Beekeeper Group needs another Research Assistant for our growing Hive! We are looking for people who love a challenge and are not afraid of tackling multiple projects for a variety of clients simultaneously. Experience working for an advocacy organization, public affairs agency, political consulting firm, or campaign is a major plus – but not a deal breaker.
Our ideal candidate can write anything from reports to tweets, possesses a great deal of social media savvy, can quickly learn about complex policy issues and technology. If you aren’t afraid of diving in and getting it done, we want to hear from you!
WHAT IS BEEKEEPER GROUP?
No, we don’t actually work with literal bees…but you should see some of the emails we get looking for help with backyard swarms! We are a public affairs firm that embraces a fresh, community-based approach to cultivate and grow our client’s hive of supporters. Our model combines trusted advocacy methods and tools with emerging media platforms to deliver upon our clients’ communications, advocacy, and public outreach goals. We are very good at what we do, and have won a whole bunch of trophies to prove it! We were even honored as the 2014 Boutique Firm of the Year by PRWeek Magazine.
WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?
While the job duties are flexible based on immediate client needs, the basic responsibilities of the position include the following:
- Monitoring blogs and social media sources
- Reporting on client campaign success
- Writing memos, analysis, and case studies
- Identifying community stakeholders
- Writing for social media audiences
Candidates must be self-starters with a passion for advocacy and drive to run winning campaigns. The successful candidate will be able to work well independently or as part of a team. Must be comfortable working in a creative, yet casual, fast-paced environment.
