The Texas Public Policy Foundation's Energy and Environment Media Relations Manager is responsible for direct outreach to, and developing relationships with, major producers in print, radio, online, and television media outlets on the national stage - with an especial focus on the Foundation's work in the energy and environmental policy spheres. With the Foundation's work assuming ever-greater importance in the national conversation, and with our forthcoming national effort to assert state prerogatives versus EPA overreach, it is imperative that our work and our personnel participate in the big national discussions - particularly in those media outlets situated in New York City and Washington, D.C. 

In that light, the TPPF Energy-and-Environment Media-Relations Manager will bear primary responsibility for taking Foundation communications to the next level: in seeing us transform from a major presence in the Lone Star State to a major and constant presence in national conversation on energy and environmental affairs. 

Qualifications: 
• A sustained and proven history in securing major national-media placements. 
• An engaging social presence, including close working relationships with national-level producers. 
• An understanding of the principles of liberty, free markets, and constitutionalism that undergird the Foundation's efforts. 
• A love of Texas, and an understanding of the state's growing importance in the national debate. 
• An ability to design and execute strategic plans in the communications sphere and an eye for opportunity in the same. 

The TPPF Energy and Environment Media Relations Manager will report to the Communications Director. 

Location is flexible depending on qualifications, but Austin, Texas, is preferred.
