Scheduler

The Office of Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) seeks an experienced, organized, and highly motivated Scheduler for either her Washington, D.C. or New Jersey District Office.

This is not an entry-level position. The ideal candidate should have prior experience as a scheduler, or executive assistant, whether on Capitol Hill or off. We are looking for a detail-oriented problem-solver who can manage the challenges of an ever-changing schedule with patience and efficiency and have excellent organizational skills.

Responsibilities include:

  • Managing and maintaining the Member’s daily and long-term schedule in both DC and the district

  • Making official travel arrangements

  • Coordinating logistics for events

  • Evaluating, organizing, and responding to all incoming meeting and event requests

  • Coordinating all briefing materials for meetings and events

  • Communicating any changes in the schedule to the Member and staff in a timely manner

  • Acting as a liaison to constituent groups

  • Coordinating with the communications team and other staff to schedule press interviews 

  • Handling the Member’s correspondence

  • Managing operational and logistical support for the office.

Ideal candidates are flexible, responsive, work well under pressure and on short deadlines, are able to balance competing demands, and are able to anticipate problems and offer solutions. Candidates must be available to assist the member outside of regular business hours, including evenings and weekends. Applicants should also have a positive attitude, sense of humor, excellent organizational skills, strong written and verbal communication and interpersonal skills, political instincts and an ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment. The ability to drive the Congresswoman is strongly preferred. 

The office is an equal opportunity employer. Women, people of color, and LGBTQ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. NJ ties, as always, are a plus.

Qualified candidates should submit their applications (resume, cover letter, references, and three writing samples) to resumes.nj11@mail.house.gov with “Scheduler” in the subject line.
