Dexis is seeking a Communications/Speechwriter Specialist to provide technical and support services to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID Bureau for Legislative and Public Affairs (LPA). Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the position will be temporarily virtual with occasional in-office work (for access to secure emails, documents, and meetings, i.e.: 1-2 hours, 1-2 times per month on average) but with eventual in-person full time work at USAID’s physical office space in Washington, D.C. The start date is immediate.
The Communications/Speechwriter Specialist directly supports the Front Office of the Bureau for Legislative and Public Affairs (LPA) and the office of Internal Communications, performing speechwriting duties and other support, including assembling, analyzing, and communicating facts related to areas of strategic importance; coordinating and preparing a wide range of reports, briefings, presentations, and other materials; liaising with internal and external stakeholders; and other duties as assigned. The Communications/Speechwriter Specialist must be comfortable using independent judgement and action to complete tasks and operate with high levels of discretion. Applicants should possess a working knowledge of USAID.
The Bureau for Legislative and Public Affairs (LPA) is responsible for managing and coordinating the Agency's external affairs. LPA serves as USAID’s central point of contact with Congress, the media, interested stakeholders from the international development community, and the American people regarding the Agency’s international development programs and policies. In exercising this leadership role, LPA works closely with the Agency’s Bureaus and Independent Offices, as well as its Federal Advisory Committees.
