Ogilvy Atlanta seeks a risk communications professional to join our award-winning Social Change practice in Atlanta, GA. This is an exciting opportunity to work with a network of risk communications, emergency management, issues management, community outreach, partnership building, and engineering experts to engage a broad array of national and local stakeholders around the issues of natural disaster mitigation and recovery, climate change adaptation, and economic stability to strengthen the arguments for local communities to take actions to protect themselves. Immediate needs exist on a unique government program to help increase our nation’s resilience to natural disasters, one community at a time. This program is extremely dynamic with many moving parts and many engaged organizations. The project includes a variety of disciplines related to risk communication and behavior change among the general public and key decision makers—traditional and social media relations, materials development and dissemination, partnership development, event planning and execution, and strategic planning.
This full-time position works collaboratively with colleagues in Washington, DC and regional offices nationwide, to accomplish significant results in the areas of raising understanding of local vulnerabilities and transforming that knowledge into action to reduce risks at the local level. Stakeholder audiences include Federal officials, State and local officials, community planners, emergency managers, professional groups, businesses, and local residents.

We have developed numerous social change campaigns to successfully raise awareness, educate and prompt action regarding some of today’s largest and most complex issues, ranging from homeland security to income taxes, emergency preparedness to heart disease, violence prevention to substance abuse—the list is extensive.
