RALLY is proud to work on an extensive range of critical social issues, including education, environmental protection, immigration, health care, women’s rights, LGBTQIA+ rights, financial inequality, gun violence, and more. We work with leading foundations, advocacy organizations, philanthropists, high-profile individuals, and commercial entities who strive to shape public policy, discourse, and opinion. They engage us to:

  • Identify unique strategies to advance critical issues
  • Design and execute impactful communications campaigns with powerful messaging
  • Build advocacy organizations from the ground up
  • Develop and execute sophisticated digital campaigns
  • Design compelling brand identities, graphics, and storytelling content

SENIOR ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE

RALLY is seeking a Senior Account Executive to join our firm. The Senior Account Executive is responsible for providing support to RALLY client project team members in the strategic development and implementation of clients’ communications campaigns. Each client project team works with a unique RALLY team that (generally) consists of two to four RALLYers, an account lead, and a principal. Each RALLYer works on several project teams at a time with a unique client mix.

Our Senior Account Executives are responsible for client management. That means they are client-facing and they lead the development of campaign plans, account strategy, messaging frameworks, press plans, etc. Additionally, an individual in this position is expected to manage account teams and provide support to senior management. They are fully integrated on account teams and are expected to think creatively and independently and take ownership of assigned projects. Senior Account Executives are able to manage projects with limited assistance, as well as work on multiple accounts and in differing roles. Senior Account Executives are also exposed to a wide variety of tasks and issue areas beyond their primary responsibilities.

No two days at RALLY are the same, but your day might start with leading a client check-in in the midst of a complex campaign launch followed by mentoring a junior colleague on how to approach their upcoming annual review, followed by finalizing a new business proposal. On a different day, you may give a staff presentation on persuasion strategies before shifting gears to prep for a discussion with a new client on their messaging goals.

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Managing strategic communications for multiple clients, including leading one to three accounts

  • Implementing forward-thinking branding, messaging and communications plans to achieve clients’ goals for diverse audiences, including the general public, media, political decision-makers, and other stakeholders
  • Pursuing your professional development plan developed in collaboration with your supervisor and mentor
  • Showing initiative by taking on new projects and actively growing new skill sets
  • Contributing to strategic growth and brand positioning for the firm overall
