Rep. Peter Welch is hiring a communications director to manage a busy press shop. Successful candidates will be excellent writers, highly creative, skilled at pitching Capitol Hill and local reporters, experienced with booking national news hits, highly organized, and able to prioritize and publicize Rep. Welch’s strategic goals across social media platforms. A successful candidate will join a tight-knit team, so a collaborative mindset is essential and a sharp sense of humor is appreciated.
Rep. Welch is a busy Member, so you will be too. In addition to being a chief deputy whip, he is a member of three very active, high profile committees: Energy and Commerce, Intelligence, and Oversight.
Capitol Hill relationships and Vermont ties are pluses. The office is an equal opportunity employer, and applications by members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged. Interested and qualified candidates should submit their resume, cover letter, and two writing samples to Vermontcomms@gmail.com.
Bonus points if you know how to pronounce the Vermont towns of Charlotte, Calais and Vergennes.
