Rep. Frederica S. Wilson seeks a legislative director. Responsibilities will include advancing legislative priorities and supporting the member’s work on the Transportation and Infrastructure and Education and Labor committees. Rep. Wilson is the chair of the Higher Education and Workforce Investment Subcommittee, a regional representative on the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, and secretary of the Congressional Black Caucus.
The ideal candidate will have substantial experience working on a variety of issues, including education, health, employment, labor, transportation, appropriations, housing, and other issues that impact majority-minority communities. Strong academic credentials, committee experience, and proven leadership skills are required. In addition, the candidate should possess strong oral and written communication skills, the ability to work well under pressure, extensive knowledge of the legislative process, and be available to work long hours.
This is not an entry-level position; only candidates with previous Hill experience and extensive legislative acumen will be considered.
