The Office of Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson seeks a legislative director. Responsibilities will include advancing legislative priorities and supporting the member’s work on the Education and Labor and Transportation and Infrastructure committees. The ideal candidate will have substantial experience working on a variety of issues, including education, health, employment, labor, transportation, appropriations, housing, and other issues affecting majority-minority communities. Strong academic credentials, committee experience, and proven leadership skills are required. Moreover, the candidate should possess strong oral and written communication skills, the ability to work well under pressure, extensive knowledge of the legislative process, and be available to work long hours.
This is not an entry-level position; only candidates with previous Hill experience and proven knowledge of legislative and political processes will be considered. Law degree and previous experience serving as a legislative director or senior policy staff are strongly preferred.
Minorities and candidates with Florida ties are encouraged to apply. Submit your resume, cover letter, and three writing samples to FL24.Resumes@mail.house.gov and include “Legislative Director” in the subject line.
