Working closely with internal client leads, you will help craft strategy and facilitate the sales process, creating custom design deliverables for proposals, presentations RFPs, and mockups. You'll also work with POLITICO Focus, our brand content studio, and POLITICO Live, our events team.

What you'll do:

  • Help craft the strategy and execute advertising campaigns through a variety of design-first services
  • Create deliverables including sales collateral, mockups, storyboards, and fully interactive presentations for high level pitches
  • Act as designer and consultant for both internal and external clients
