The Raben Group is a public policy, strategic communications and organizational consulting firm. We were founded with a lofty goal and an audacious spirit: to make our nation greater by helping to shift public policy in a sensible, humane direction. We work intimately with policymakers and influencers in the nonprofit, corporate, foundation, and government sectors to identify shared interests, forge new connections, tackle our country’s most intractable problems, and uplift new generations of leaders and activists.
Now 100+ strong with offices across the country, we are proudly majority people of color and LGBTQ, and majority women, all of which affords us a unique perspective on public policy, and imbues us with the fierce urgency of now – we know why this work matters.
Spending any time with us, you quickly learn we value smarts, creativity, and audaciousness in our work, and for us, a sense of humor is a contractual must. Please learn more about Raben at rabengroup.com.
What We Need:
We seek a Director to join our Government Affairs and Policy Counsel practice group in our Washington, DC office primarily to support The Raben Group’s client teams and engagements. Directors have hands-on expertise, contextual knowledge, leadership abilities, and the tactical skills to advance the strategic mission and vision of The Raben Group and further the development and success of our Government Affairs and Policy Counsel practice group in providing excellent client services and engaging prospective clients.
Our successful candidate will have a high degree of initiative, personal resilience, attention to detail, project management skills, intellectual engagement in the subject matter at hand, and a concierge-like approach to client services.
The Raben Group finds it quite natural to be an Equal Opportunity Employer, living the values of diversity and inclusiveness in everything we do.
Our workforce is currently home-based due to COVID-19, but candidates should be based in the DC metro area or a commutable distance to effectively engage with our clients on the Hill and in the DC area once in-person events resume.
Directors in Government Affairs can expect a base salary range of $70,000-85,000 per year, with a commission range between $30,000-50,000 per year, commensurate with expertise and client services experience. All new Directors at Raben take part in a commission guarantee program during their first year with the firm.
