Campbell & Company-2

Senior Consultant, Communications

Campbell & Company-2, Hybrid, preference for Chicago, Seattle, or the Northeast

Salary: $90,000 - $102,000

Level: Experienced

Duration: Full Time


Our Communications team works with clients to craft compelling messaging, produce communications in a range of formats, coach and train nonprofit leaders in their communications roles, and develop communications strategy. Most of our work centers around fundraising, with a focus on creating the communications that drive large fundraising campaigns. We also provide business writing support to the firm’s fundraising consulting practice, including developing reports that deliver our fundraising strategy recommendations to clients.

The Senior Consultant position in our Communications practice is a senior client service role that balances client strategy and relationship management, editorial and creative direction, project management and team collaboration.


Primary duties will include:

  • Manage projects with colleagues and clients to develop messaging and branding for fundraising campaigns and other significant organizational communications.
  • Advise clients on various aspects of messaging, consensus-building, communications and brand strategy, and project-related problem-solving.
  • Facilitate meetings and presentations with client leadership, staff and board members with the goal of building consensus, sharing messaging and work, and generating meaningful and inclusive discussion.
  • Produce and edit copy for client communications in a variety of formats, including brochures, digital presentations, web, and video.
  • Engage with design and creative partners to provide input, interpret client feedback, and connect creative work to messaging and strategy.
  • Provide oversight and direction to junior team members in their various writing and consulting tasks.
  • Provide day-to-day project management for client engagements including interfacing with client staff, Campbell & Company colleagues, and design/creative partners; managing timelines and review processes; running meetings; and identifying and escalating issues for resolution.
  • Work with colleagues to produce significant reports that deliver our recommended fundraising and communications strategy.
  • Participate in sales activities as appropriate: developing relationships in the nonprofit sector, participating in thought leadership and marketing, fielding new inquiries, and developing scopes of work for new business, often with oversight and support from Vice Presidents and team/firm leaders.

With experience, learning, and a track record of success, Senior Consultants advance to higher title levels within the Communications practice in which they take on greater leadership for increasingly significant projects, take on sales responsibilities, and begin providing team leadership and direction for others.


We are looking for amazing people who are inspired by our mission and highly motivated to change lives through meaningful work. The Senior Consultant position is a multi-faceted role requiring several primary skills:

  • At least 7 years of experience in a nonprofit communications (especially development communications) or professional/creative services role (consulting, creative strategy, branding, etc.), with meaningful experience in project management and (internal/external) client service. For candidates who are interested in our work but do not have this level of experience, we are also hiring for Consultant-level positions at this time.
  • Exceptional customer/client-service orientation, with a focus on partnership and problem-solving
  • Exceptional writing and editing skills, with the ability to listen and adapt to each unique client brand, voice, and tone
  • Comfort and skill presenting work, leading meetings, facilitating discussion, and building consensus
  • Strong project management and team coordination skills
  • A team-based, collaborative work style with an open-minded attitude toward feedback and an inclusive leadership style
  • A commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access and their application in nonprofit communications
  • The ability to work independently to manage deadlines and manage multiple projects simultaneously
  • Creativity, flexibility, and the ability to solve problems

Some travel is required for client service and in-person firm business.
