The Office of Congressman Himes seeks an exceptionally well-organized scheduler or operations director with strong oral and written communication and excellent interpersonal skills. Applicants must have the ability to multi-task, a positive attitude, and the ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment. The ideal scheduler possesses a strong work ethic, excellent attention to detail, the ability to work well with different teams and the ability to keep calm under pressure.
Responsibilities include developing, coordinating and managing all aspects of the Member’s daily and long-term schedule in D.C. and Connecticut, as well as tracking, evaluating and responding to invitations and scheduling requests. The scheduler also coordinates all travel for the Member and staff, files travel receipts and works closely with the Member as required on other necessary tasks. This position works closely with the rest of the senior staff team to ensure smooth daily schedules and operations.
This is not an entry-level position. Previous scheduling experience required and 1-3 years of prior work experience desired. Applicants who have worked in fast-paced operational roles or have prior scheduling experience or in executive assistant positions are preferred. Prior Capitol Hill experience, Connecticut ties, and good sense of humor are all plusses. Salary and title commensurate with experience.
