Ogilvy seeks a community engagement and risk communications professional to join our award-winning Social Change practice in New York, NY. 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 Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) program to help increase our nation’s resilience to natural disasters, one community at a time. The project includes a variety of disciplines related to risk communication and community engagement—materials development and dissemination, relationship building, and event planning and execution.
This full-time position works collaboratively with colleagues in Washington, D.C., and 10 regional offices nationwide to accomplish significant results in the areas of raising understanding of local vulnerabilities. Stakeholder audiences include Federal officials, State and local officials, community planners, emergency managers, professional groups, businesses, and local residents. The position will require frequent travel within a six-state region.

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.
