57.)  Press Secretary (Remote job), Economic Security Project, Remote (US)


The Economic Security Project (ESP) is seeking a Press Secretary to work with our growing communications team. This position will report to and work alongside the Communications Director to coordinate and implement ESP’s media relations strategy, which is focused on growing the impact and reputation of our guaranteed income and anti-monopoly work.


About Us


We live in a time of historic economic uncertainty. The dramatic increase in unreliable work and the concentration of wealth in too few hands threatens to undermine the foundation of the modern social contract: the idea that if you work hard and play by the rules, you can get ahead in America. Low-income Americans are struggling to pay heating bills and make rent, and many in the middle class live on the financial brink as skyrocketing housing, childcare, and medical costs overwhelm stagnating incomes. Nearly 40 percent of Americans do not have enough savings on hand to cover a $400 emergency. Technological advancements threaten to accelerate these trends.


The Economic Security Project challenges this status quo by catalyzing ideas that build economic power for all Americans. We serve as convener, strategist, and funder. We disburse grants, identify gaps, develop communications research to inform the movements, and coordinate events and convenings to encourage investment and action from others. We aim to support the emerging leaders in the economic justice field and ensure they have the networks, know-how, and resources to succeed.


We’ve identified two fights we think we can win: (1) a guaranteed income that would provide an income floor for all Americans and (2) anti-monopoly action to rein in the unprecedented concentration of corporate power. We pick our fights based on our analysis of where our team can add value, where there are gaps in the existing ecosystem, and where a little push could turn an idea from a trend into a substantive intervention that improves people’s lives.


Economic Security Project is a 501(c)(3) with a 501(c)(4) sister organization, Economic Security Project Action. Economic Security Project is co-chaired by Natalie Foster, Chris Hughes, and Dorian Warren. The Economic Security Project’s Executive Director, Taylor Jo Isenberg, has over ten years of experience building complex organizations. We’ve recruited a high-caliber team of campaigners, communicators, and operators to help us realize our vision.


Job Responsibilities


The Press Secretary will work closely with the Communications Director to coordinate, plan, and execute communications strategies that move forward ESP’s key initiatives. The role is highly collaborative and will involve coordinating work across all of ESP departments, as well as a variety of communications consultants.




Monitor media coverage to ensure broad, timely and relevant distribution of ESP-related news, including daily news clips and/or weekly reports


Draft and develop multiple press releases and advisories weekly, as well as other briefing materials, media statements, opinion pieces, letters to the editor, and talking points


Develop and manage a system for incoming media inquiries, leading on the coordination of quotes and interview requests


Assist in the development and lead on the upkeep of media relations plans that proactively target key reporters, producers, and columnists


Help coordinate press conferences, or press-focused briefings and events as needed


Work closely with our content manager, cultural strategists team, and consultants to develop and iterate on comprehensive communications strategies


Strategize with the Senior Team on our overall narrative strategy, with an eye to broader public engagement exposure, and an ability to bring a critical lens that prioritizes equity and inclusion in all aspects of our communications


Job requirements



A Bachelor’s degree in Communications, Journalism, Public Relations, Politics or Economics, or equivalent professional work that establishes familiarity with our issue areas


Minimum of four-five years’ experience in media relations and strategic communications, working with issue advocacy organizations, or related experience


Experience and/or proven commitment to economic, social, and racial justice with the ability to discuss the intersections between them


Excellent written, speaking, editing, and research skills, including the ability to seek out and quickly synthesize complex information from disparate sources


A strong background in writing and storytelling, with the ability to create effective narratives and impactful messaging


Top-notch project management skills, including the ability to illicit and incorporate feedback from staff at all levels of the organization


Ability to work on deadline, adapt to changing situations, prioritize, and switch between different projects and tasks on short notice


Quick learner and ability to take initiative and problem-solve


Experience with Cision, Asana, Slack, and G Suite a plus


The Economic Security Project is a virtual office with staff across the country. The Press Secretary will report to the Communications Director, who is based in New York City.

The salary range is $70,000-$95,000 with benefits, depending on experience. It is full-time and considered exempt from FLSA overtime rules.


Please submit your resume, a writing sample, and, in lieu in a cover letter, answers to our pre-screening question. The writing sample should be a piece of recent work that you were primarily or significantly responsible for. The pre-screening questions are as follows; please try to keep each answer at or under 250 words:


Why are you interested in working at Economic Security Project in this role?

Can you tell us about a time you centered equity and inclusion in your current or previous roles?

Can you tell us a little bit about your experience pitching story ideas and building relationships with journalists?


Because the Economic Security Project values a diverse and representative workplace, people who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, and people of all gender identities are strongly encouraged to apply. ESP is committed to attracting, developing and retaining exceptional people, and to creating a work environment that is dynamic, rewarding, and enables each of us to realize our potential.
