Head, Press and Media Section/Deputy Spokesperson

NATO's Public Diplomacy Division (PDD) plays a key role in explaining the Alliance's strategic and political messages to opinion formers and to the public in general. As NATO's main public interface, PDD works to raise the Alliance's profile with audiences world-wide. PDD also works to promote security cooperation through a variety of programmes in NATO and partner countries and contributes to a continuous process of international security debate and policy creation. Last but not least, the Division also acts as coordinator for most public diplomacy activities undertaken by other divisions at NATO Headquarters (HQ), as well as by other entities belonging to the NATO structure.
The Press and Media Section is the principal point of contact for all media-related issues at NATO Headquarters, including engagement with the media, media policy and doctrine, and media monitoring.
Are you an exceptional, media-savvy communicator with outstanding leadership skills? Do you have proven accomplishments in major, fast-paced, international organisations? If so, you may qualify to become the NATO Deputy Spokesperson and head the Press Office at NATO’s Brussels headquarters. 
Under the direction of the NATO Spokesperson, you will help manage a multinational team that provides communications advice to the senior Alliance leadership and plays a central role in building public awareness and understanding of NATO decisions, operations and activities at a time when our nations face the greatest security challenges in a generation. The successful candidate will need to stay calm under significant pressure, to be a good manager, to engage effectively with international media and a wide range of political and military stake-holders, and to travel frequently.
