Exploring the Future of Global Surface Combatant Fleets In a highly
uncertain strategic environment, the ability to use the majority of the
world’s surface, and reach most of its population makes maritime forces

surface warships are key components of such forces. Their need to police
the oceans against the dual threats of terrorism and piracy make surface
warship programmes a crucial and indispensable part of the future
maritime environment.

Surface Warships will provide the ideal environment for industry and
naval professional to discuss innovative future designs and the need to
keep current vessels battle ready through capability upgrades and

41.)  Director, Public Affairs, The Consumer Rights Coalition,
Washington, DC

www.consumerrightscoalition.org

The Consumer Rights Coalition (CRC) is a consumer-based organization
dedicated to expanding access to short-term credit options. In CRC’s
support of consumer choice and market-driven solutions it has engendered
support from more than 200,000 consumers. The organization is now poised
to expand its outreach to consumers, legislators and regulators in
response to a tightening credit market and new financial regulations.
As the head of this newly created office, the Director, Public Affairs
will strategically and tactically operationalize CRC’s outreach
activities. In partnership with an external public relations team the
Director will execute a political-style grassroots campaign to showcase
CRC’s Executive Director as a credible consumer advocate at both state
and federal levels. The primary goal will be to establish a streamlined
public affairs effort including coalition-building, community relations,
press outreach, new media tactics, strategic scheduling of the Executive
Director’s public appearances and coordinating political activities. The
Director will hire and manage a Public Affairs Coordinator and will
report to the board on the progress of the campaign plan against its
strategic goals and budget.
The success of the campaign will be determined in part by CRC’s
increased public exposure in the pursuit of market-based and innovative
solutions to consumer problems and complaints. As an advocate of this
cause, the ED must be a visible spokesperson representing consumers on
all manner of issues. Target partnerships may include local politicians,
attorneys general, local community groups and other consumer advocates
who, together with CRC, will chastise ‘bad actors’ and raise awareness
of smart solutions that work for the consumer without harming business.
A potential challenge facing CRC is the recent criticism of the
financial services industry, a segment of which funds CRC. As a champion
of consumers, the ED may need to diffuse any misperceptions about the
connection with this industry to show that CRC’s mission is clear: to
positively impact the availability of credit for all Americans.

REQUIREMENTS:
•       Bachelors degree in communications, political science or related
field
•       Minimum 5 years’ experience on the Hill, in a public affairs firm,
campaign setting or small nonprofit
•       Creative and tenacious work style, experienced in proactively
gaining
visibility for an underexposed issue and/or public figure
•       Strategic thinker, able to design and execute an aggressive public
affairs campaign
•       Willing to work in fast-paced environment with unpredictable
schedule
•       Comfortable with small office setting.
•       ‘Free-market’ orientation helpful

OFFICE LOCATION:
This will be a newly created Washington, DC based office; the exact
location to be determined in conjunction with the new Director, Public
Affairs.

FOR IMMEDIATE CONSIDERATION
This is a retained search. Email cover letter describing past experience
designing and executing an aggressive public affairs campaign and resume
to Shira Harrington at shira@purposefulhire.com.
