The Communications Assistant will provide administrative and research support to the Federal Communications team in our Washington DC office. Beyond possessing the necessary administrative skills, the ideal candidate is one with a demonstrated ability to exercise independent judgment, prioritize assignments, work as a member of a fast-paced team and proactively interface with individuals from all departments throughout a 600+ member organization. The successful candidate must be an excellent multitasker and possess strong written, verbal communications and basic research skills.
