About Rasmussen Global

Rasmussen Global was founded in 2014 by the former Prime Minister of Denmark and Secretary General of NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen. We are a boutique consultancy firm with a clear purpose: to help democratic governments and international businesses navigate European and transatlantic affairs – and connect the dots for them to get their message across. As a political consultancy, we take on projects where we can make a difference, solving complex public policy challenges or making the case for a freer, more open and democratic world. We are a small but highly agile firm with offices in Copenhagen and Brussels, as well as senior staff present in key capitals including Berlin, Paris, and Washington D.C.

About the position

We are looking for an exceptional candidate to:

  • Design and implement Rasmussen Global’s policy and political communications campaigns for clients/prospective clients. These include major international strategic communications campaigns with a sharp focus on delivering policy outcomes
  • Act as spokesperson/press officer to our founder Anders Fogh Rasmussen, and identify opportunities that align with his priorities of democracy promotion, transatlantic unity, and open societies
  • Draft concise, sharp opinion editorials, speeches, social media content

Qualifications

We are looking for a candidate with a proactive mindset and a passion for international affairs. The candidate we seek will have:

  • A background in political or policy communications/campaigns, including demonstrable ability to use communications to shift the dial on public policy issue
  • Excellent knowledge of the media landscape on both sides of the Atlantic, and a good array of contacts in media outlets in Europe and North America
  • Solid judgment, with experience of advising senior politicians/diplomats or C-Suite executives
  • A strong understanding of social media, and how to build and execute a strong social media campaign
  • A good understanding of geopolitics, including transatlantic relations, security policy and Indo-Pacific policy
  • An affinity for our proposition, especially promoting freedom and democracy

In addition, these would be a bonus:

  • Native English speaker and knowledge of other European language(s)
  • Experience of working in EU policy on space, renewables or in the foreign/security sphere
  • A combination of working within both political/government and corporate sphere
  • Experience of business development/pitching in a consultancy environment

Working at Rasmussen Global

The position is a fulltime position ideally based in Brussels but we would consider Copenhagen or another major European city. Some job related travel should be expected. Apart from a competitive package commensurate to experience, we offer a strong team spirit built on delivering a purpose, and a sense of autonomy and taking initiative.

Application

Please provide a cover letter of no more than 300 words, and a CV (maximum two pages), preferably including examples of recent media work, by e-mail with the subject line ‘Communications Director’ to contact@rasmussenglobal.com
