Policy Brands Roundtable is currently looking for a Research Analyst to join the team.
We are a strategic research service designed to help government affairs professionals identify and develop the most effective approaches to advocacy. We study organizations’ policy brand, which is a measure of an organization’s long-term reputation and influence among the power-brokers of DC. We serve our clients - separate from the journalistic work of National Journal and Atlantic Media - through a quantitative bench-marking study, qualitative interviews, and other diagnostic tools that allow them to track and improve their Washington brand and ultimately enhance their approach to advocacy.
Who the Research Analyst is:
A self-motivated, innovative, and driven individual with proven analytical skills, deep intellectual curiosity, and a passion for qualitative and quantitative research. This individual will collaborate with internal team members to help design and execute research initiatives, which includes conducting exclusive interviews with senior policymakers in Washington, including Capitol Hill staff, Executive Branch staff, and Government Affairs Executives to understand their perspectives on effective advocacy in Washington. The analyst will use the resulting quantitative and qualitative data to create client reports that focus on actionable insights. An aptitude for and interest in Washington politics and policy, combined with client-facing consulting, is welcome.
Qualifications of the Ideal Candidate:
Across Atlantic Media, generally, the firm looks for two “pillar gifts” in its candidates. In all of us, these are more aspirational than actual, but they are central in our intentions.
