Are you passionate about leading social change that reduces vulnerability to natural disasters? Ogilvy is seeking a middle-level communications professional to join the Washington, D.C. office as an Account Supervisor within the award-winning Government Practice (NOTE: the position will be based full-time in Philadelphia as part of a remote team). In this role you will support FEMA Region III in increasing resilience to flooding risks across the Mid-Atlantic region. This is an opportunity to work exclusively with a prominent national government client and create impactful work that advances grassroots disaster risk reduction, sustainability and resilience campaigns. By joining Ogilvy’s Government Practice, you’ll be part of a highly skilled team dedicated to helping people be safer, healthier, and happier through social marketing initiatives -- with a focus on public health communications.
Our Account Supervisors are responsible for the day to day program management of their client account(s). They are the trusted partner and point of contact for mid-level clients partnering with account leadership to deliver operational discipline and delivery excellence, speed to market, resource optimization, and profitability management to their business(es). Account Supervisors are efficient operators, who demonstrate strong all-around communications abilities and business and financial acumen. They are highly organized and accountable account leaders, who are able to build relationships and collaborate with/draw on the expertise of all Ogilvy’s capabilities.
In this particular role, the Account Supervisor will support the team’s efforts in flood risk-related outreach partly through the development of messaging campaigns and translating technical information into easy to understand language to influence behavior change, but also by planning the “nuts and bolts” logistics of public meetings and community events.
