Press Secretary

Colorado Senator John Hickenlooper – a laid off geologist turned brewpub owner turned elected official – seeks a hard-working and innovative Press Secretary based in D.C. or Colorado. We are eager for applicants who already have strong press and communications experience. Responsibilities include drafting press releases, memos, talking points, op-eds, and speeches; pitching and responding to reporter inquiries; planning, organizing, and staffing press events; and developing and maintaining relationships with national and in-state reporters, TV bookers, and producers. Ideal candidates are proactive, detailed-oriented storytellers/communicators who work well in a fast-paced environment and under tight deadlines with a sense of humor and a positive attitude. A passion for craft beer is *not* a prerequisite. What we do value is creativity, outside-the-box thinking and excellent writing skills. As a team, we take the job seriously but not ourselves and are looking for similarly humble-minded teammates who are hungry to roll up their sleeves and get to work on issues that impact Coloradans. Colorado ties and Spanish-language skills are added bonuses. This office is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, age, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. Diverse applicants are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should send 1-2 applicable writing samples and a resume. Please do not send a cover letter, instead please write 200 words or fewer on why you would be an ideal candidate for this position. The salary for this position begins at $75,000, subject to experience. Please send materials to senate_employment@saa.senate.gov indicating the job referral number (228303) in the subject line.
