***  Alternative selections

 

Hi Ned, I was wondering why there are jobs on here — I’ve been following your Job List for several years but just recently started looking for a job again — that are way outside of communications/marketing/PR jobs such as those of a butcher and skinner. I find those latter jobs particularly offensive and am wondering why this Job List is supporting the killing of animals. I don’t understand.

 

DD

 

(Ned responds:  The alternative selections have been as far from communication jobs as we could find, for those who are totally fed up with the profession.  Or maybe they help us to appreciate the fact that we don’t have such a crappy job after all.  Also, there were no vehetarian jobs.)

30.)  VICE PRESIDENT, SCIENCE AND REGULATORY AFFAIRS, SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association, Washington, DC

 

With the intensifying pressure of US and international environmental, health and safety regulations, the plastics industry has been rallying its efforts to champion good stewardship practices while advocating for a more favorable regulatory environment. Still, there exist numerous regulatory threats to the fiscal health of this vital industry that directly employs nearly 900,000 people in the U.S., and is responsible for countless facets of the modern life we enjoy today.

 

THE ROLE:

 

Leading an all-star team of state, federal and international government affairs professionals, the VP has a trailblazing opportunity to spearhead scientific, technological and advocacy initiatives that may dramatically shift the tone of the regulatory conversation.

 

This ‘ambassadorial’ advocacy role engages with numerous external stakeholders including the EPA, OSHA, FDA and CPSC along with trade association allies, issue-base coalitions, international sister organizations as well as internal committees.

 

As chief science and technology officer, the VP will serve as spokesperson on scientific and technological issues and design / administer public policy-based programming to advance the industry’s goals.

 

The ideal candidate will be a master at balancing three essential job functions: regulatory advocacy (50%), science and technology programming (25%), and staff leadership (25%.) The VP will exemplify win-win relationship building, supreme organizational skills and a passion for the enduring well-being of the industry.

 

REQUIREMENTS:

 

•             Bachelors degree required. Masters degree and curriculum in the physical sciences preferred.

•             Ten or more years of progressively responsible scientific and/or regulatory background.  A background in engineering, chemistry or biology would ensure a smoother transition into the role.

•             Experience with plastics industry or industry stakeholder group(s) strongly preferred.

•             Experience working in trade association environment preferred.

•             Outstanding leadership skills and demonstrated strength in coaching/mentoring staff.

•             Extraordinary organizational skills, able to balance competing priorities with aplomb.

•             Willingness to travel, primarily domestically but occasionally internationally, approximately 25%.

 

FOR IMMEDIATE CONSIDERATION:

Send salary requirements, cover letter, and résumé to Shira Harrington, Purposeful Hire, Inc. at shira@purposefulhire.com. This is a retained search.
