DEPUTY COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR/PRESS SECRETARY Position Description: The Democratic staff of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee is seeking an experienced communications professional to help lead a fast-paced and proactive press office. The candidate should have robust national media relationships, including with booking producers and Capitol Hill reporters, as well as on-the-record experience and a strong understanding of the current media landscape. Responsibilities include writing and editing press releases, talking points, statements and other materials on a wide range of policy issues, as well as responding to press inquiries and managing media relations for the office. The ideal candidate will be an exceptional writer, able to handle multiple assignments efficiently, works well on deadline, and anticipates the needs of the office. The candidate will also be expected to staff and brief the Chairman and help manage the Committees’ press team. Capitol Hill, campaign, or similar experience is preferred — this is not an entry-level position. The Committee is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, gender identity, or sexual orientation.  The Committee values diversity, equity and inclusion, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who have relevant lived experience and/or have been directly impacted by the Committee’s jurisdiction.   

Statement of Equal Employment Policy: The Office of Chairman Gary C. Peters is an equal employment opportunity employer in accordance with the requirements of Senate rules and regulations and applicable federal laws.

Participation in E-Verify Program: The law requires this office to comply with the E-Verify Program established by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA).  If you are hired by our Office, the Office will verify with the DHS and the SSA that you are eligible for employment in the United States.
