Legislative Assistant

Legislative Assistant

Rep. Norma Torres (CA-35), a member of both the House Appropriations and House Rules Committees, seeks a pro-active Legislative Assistant to join our team. Candidates should have at least 2-3 years of Hill or comparable policy experience. This is not an entry-level position.

Successful candidates will be a self-starter, problem-solver, skilled writer, and work well in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment.  The ideal candidate will also have demonstrated experience developing legislative ideas, advancing legislative priorities, and writing talking points, speeches, memos, and hearing questions. Previous experience with the House Appropriations Committee or House Rules Committee is a plus.  

California ties preferred but not required. Interested candidates should send an email to CA35.OfficeStaff@mail.house.gov with “Legislative Assistant” in the subject line and include a cover letter, resume, and two writing samples.  The office is an equal opportunity employer. Female, minority, veteran, and LGBTQ+ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
