Legislative Assistant

Congressman Bobby L. Rush (IL-01) seeks an experienced legislative staffer to handle a portfolio including agriculture, health care, and other issues as determined by the office’s needs and in consultation with the applicant’s interests.  Candidates must be proficient at advancing legislation, analyzing and briefing on complex policy issues, and drafting a wide array of written materials.  Strong written and verbal communication skills and a demonstrated ability to work collaboratively in a fast-paced environment are critical.  At least three years of prior Congressional is required.  Midwestern ties are a plus but not required.  This office is an equal opportunity employer and strongly encourages candidates from diverse backgrounds to apply.

Applicants should email a resume and cover letter as individual files in PDF format to Illinois.Resume@mail.house.gov with “Legislative Assistant” in the subject line.  No other phone calls, faxes, emails, or walk-ins, please.
