Washington, DC

The National Taxpayers Union is seeking a Policy and Government Affairs Associate to assist with federal policy analysis and outreach. Though this individual may work on a variety of subjects, the primary issue areas will be telecommunications, technology, and regulatory barriers that restrict innovation. Job duties will include analyzing federal policy; writing letters, op-eds, and issue briefs; and meeting with legislators, taxpayer groups, and other organizations to advocate on behalf of taxpayers. Limited work on state and local policy in the above areas is also possible.

The ideal candidate will have one to three years of relevant experience.  The following skills and qualities are necessary to be successful in this position:

  • Motivated and independent
  • A creative thinker
  • Passionate about advocating for lower taxes, less spending, and free markets
  • Strong verbal and written communications skills to be able to effectively convey NTU’s message
  • Excellent organizational and interpersonal skills
  • Willingness to travel as necessary

Founded in 1969, National Taxpayers Union proudly serves as the “Voice of America’s Taxpayers,” fighting to ensure that all Americans are able to pursue their dreams without the heavy hand of government holding them back. NTU is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit, nonpartisan citizen group whose supporters work every day for lower taxes and smaller government at all levels.

Interested candidates should send a resume, cover letter, three writing samples (minimum of 500 words each), and at least two professional references to Sylvia Carranza (scarranza@ntu.org). While we thank all applicants in advance for their interest in this position, we are only able to contact those to whom we can offer an interview. No phone calls please.
