The Office of Congresswoman Diana DeGette (CO-01) is seeking a hardworking, motivated Legislative Assistant to manage a diverse portfolio that includes issues in the jurisdiction of several House committees, but primarily in Energy & Commerce and Ways and Means, along with other issues as assigned. This position is exclusively based in the Washington, D.C. office.

The primary responsibilities for this position will be leading and advancing the assigned issue areas, identifying new areas for legislative action, and coordinating with other Members and outside stakeholders. Additional duties will be assigned based on experience and office needs.

The ideal candidate is organized, detail-oriented and resilient in the face of a fast-paced and ever-changing environment. The ideal candidate is also proactive and comfortable working with diverse staff, community members and constituents.

Close ties to Colorado or western states are a plus. This Office is an equal opportunity employer; women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and members of other traditionally underrepresented communities are encouraged to apply.
