Senior Communications Consultant


The Aspen Institute Forum for Community Solutions (FCS) is seeking a Senior Communications Consultant to develop communications strategies and perform a wide range of communications activities. The consultant is the primary communications person at FCS, and supports all internal and external communications activities.

The initial period of this contract will be one year, with the potential for extension. The funding available for this position is $7,500 per month (plus expenses for any required travel), with the understanding that this contract will entail about 30 hours per week of work on average. FCS has its main office in Washington DC, but the consultant may be located anywhere in the US. FCS will consider individuals or firms for this SOW.

The consultant must have considerable prior experience across a broad range of typical non-profit communications activities, and must have led communications strategy development processes in the past. Prior work on the issues that FCS focuses on, and/or work in social justice-related communications is a bonus, but not required. Women, people of color, and other minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Resume and materials are due by January 15, 2021; we prefer the consultant start no later than March 2021. No emails, calls or questions, please.
