The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) is a Washington, DC-based think tank that helps policymakers work across the aisle to craft bipartisan solutions. By connecting lawmakers, delivering data and context, negotiating policy details, and creating space for bipartisan collaboration, BPC ensures democracy can function on behalf of all Americans. We believe that bipartisanship combines the best ideas of both parties to create even better, lasting policy.

BPC seeks an Associate Director to contribute to the Economic Policy Program’s (EPP) expertise on fiscal policy. EPP is expanding its fiscal policy portfolio ahead of the 2025 fiscal cliff. A major pillar of this effort will be a multifaceted, national policy, communications, and advocacy initiative to raise the issue of fiscal responsibility with the public and policymakers in 2024 so that, regardless of who ends up in power next year, they will be more attuned to the nation’s fiscal constraints.

Given BPC’s wide range of policy expertise, the Associate Director will work closely with other BPC policy teams (Energy, Health, Housing, Human Capital) to make the case that America’s unsustainable fiscal trajectory is relevant to everyday Americans and critical sectors of the economy. The Associate Director will work closely with EPP leadership to oversee the development of various policy explainers and written collateral to advance the initiative. The role will also work closely with EPP and BPC Action colleagues to develop and promote fiscally responsible policies for consideration during next year’s budgetary negotiations.

A successful candidate for this position will have not only interest and expertise in fiscal policy, but also superb time management and interpersonal skills, including experience navigating a matrixed organization.


  • Bachelor’s degree and at least six years of relevant experience OR relevant master’s degree and at least five years of relevant experience.
  • Strong interest and significant experience in federal budget policy, financial security policy, and/or economic policy writ large.
  • Excellent writing and analytical skills, with the ability to clearly and concisely summarize large amounts of information for senior leadership.
  • Ability to easily research, access, manipulate, and analyze data from government and other sources, such as the Congressional Budget Office, Joint Committee on Taxation, Internal Revenue Service, Census Bureau, Federal Reserve, and Department of Labor.
  • Ability to supervise the development of informative blogs, infographics, and charts using Excel and/or other platforms.
  • Expertise in the ability to communicate clearly and professionally with colleagues and external stakeholders in writing and in person.
  • Experience writing for public audiences and/or for congressional staff/government offices.
  • Experience managing diverse coalitions of stakeholders.
  • Experience managing direct reports and/or overseeing projects where others are contributors.
  • Experience working with coalitions/campaigns is a plus.


  • In partnership with EPP leadership, help set strategy and work plan for the team.
  • Oversee and conduct research and analysis on various economic and fiscal policy topics and summarize findings in internal briefs and other formats.
  • Compile, analyze, and visualize data to develop and support research products and policy proposals.
  • Supervise the production of and independently write short pieces including issue briefs, explainers, one-pagers, and blog posts to comment on or explain current events related to the portfolio.
  • Manage coordinated content production with other BPC programs discussing the linkages between fiscal policy and other policy/issue areas.
  • Lead substantive meetings with external stakeholders, including policy experts, congressional staff, and funders.
  • Work with EPP leadership and BPC’s development team to advance grant proposals and grant reports.
  • Collaborate with communications, advocacy, and events teams to promote and advance the team’s work externally, including by representing the team at BPC-organized and external events, in broadcast and print media, and in meetings with policymakers and their staff.
  • Manage internal and external working groups and coalitions on relevant policy matters.
