The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today's most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public and stimulate civic life.
We are an independent nonprofit organization – the sole beneficiary of seven individual trusts established between 1948 and 1979 by two sons and two daughters of Sun Oil Company founder Joseph N. Pew and his wife, Mary Anderson Pew.
Our work lays the foundation for effective policy solutions by informing and engaging citizens, linking diverse interests to pursue common cause and insisting on tangible results. Our projects encourage efficient, responsive governments – at the local, state, national and international levels – serving the best interests of the people. We partner with a diverse range of donors, public and private organizations and concerned citizens who share our interest in fact-based solutions and goal-driven investments to improve society.
With offices in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Brussels and London and staff in other regions of the United States as well as Australia, Pew provides an exciting learning environment and the opportunity to work with highly talented individuals. We are a dynamic, rapidly evolving organization that values creativity and innovative thinking and fosters strong teamwork with mutual respect.
The Human Resources Department
The Human Resources (HR) Department within Pew is comprised of five main functions: Talent Acquisition, Talent Management, Development and Internal Communications, Compensation, Benefits and HRIS, and Employee Relations/Business Partnership. The unit provides strategic support to the business by aligning its priorities and service delivery with the needs of the organization, providing expertise and leadership in each functional area, and serving as an internal consultant to help drive results.
Internal Communication seeks to support the business through communication – connecting staff to the organization and the organization to its most important resource. This function contributes to the success of the organization by reinforcing its culture, vision, values and goals through effective communication. This primarily means providing staff—in a credible, compelling, and consistent way—with the information needed to successfully perform their job in support of Pew's strategic objectives and in a culture of open, two-way communication.
Reporting to the head of Internal Communications, the Senior Associate assists in executing plans that engage, inspire, and drive staff understanding of the organization's business priorities, key initiatives, and performance-based culture.
As part of the Internal Communication team, this individual supports a proactive, strategic approach to internal communications for staff across all functions and provides internal communications support to the organization as needed. The individual seeks to identify news and information relevant to the larger enterprise and looks for ways to improve and target communications to staff through the use of technology.
Pew offers a competitive salary and an excellent benefits package including four weeks of vacation annually, a generous 401(k) plan and flexible benefit options.
This position is located in Pew's Washington, DC office.
Pew is an equal opportunity employer.
