Clean Energy and Sustainability Focus

Hybrid – mostly remote with some in-person work in Washington, D.C.

Are you skilled at managing client relationships and driving the success of their strategic communications goals? Do you thrive when coordinating complex projects and communicating effectively across various teams? Are you passionate about supporting clients focused on sustainability? If so, we have an exciting opportunity for you!

Proof Strategies, a public relations (PR) and public affairs agency, is seeking a U.S.-based Account Manager, preferably with experience with energy issues, to join our small but dynamic team. This employee will support Proof’s strategic public affairs and communications on behalf of clients in the environmental and clean energy sectors.

In this role, you will lead and manage mid-sized accounts, design and execute public affairs strategies, track and coordinate stakeholder engagements, provide strategic guidance, and develop messaging to communicate clients’ causes to various stakeholders including the public, media, and Congress. Our clients work across a variety of energy issues, including sustainable transportation and spent nuclear fuel storage.

This position is almost entirely remote, with a few working days per month in D.C. Candidates must be located in the Boston, Massachusetts or Washington, D.C. metropolitan areas. If the successful candidate is based in Boston, this position would require infrequent travel to D.C., no more than six times per year.

Join our team and enjoy competitive compensation and benefits, a collaborative working environment, and the opportunity to work on purpose-based initiatives.
