JOB TITLE: Policy Specialist/Senior Policy Specialist
PROGRAM: Health Program
RECRUITING RANGE: $4,428 - $4,907/month + depending experience
NCSL’s Denver Health Program is seeking a Policy Specialist or Senior Policy Specialist with expertise in health policy issues that include pharmaceuticals, health insurance and coverage, health costs and finances, and health system innovations issues. This position will work as part of a team funded under grants. Team members carry out numerous work assignments to meet the information needs of state legislators and legislative staff across the country to help them make more informed decisions. Grants that support the position require successful completion of work products, such as tracking state legislation, responding to information requests from across the country, writing publications, planning meeting sessions, making educational presentations, providing individual state technical assistance programs, updating web pages, and planning webinars. This position will also perform grant management and fundraising duties, including grant writing, communications with funders, and writing grant reports. The position is non-partisan and non-advocacy and requires expertise in health policy gained through progressively more complex and more in-depth work over several years. The position will require out-of-state travel (likely about a half-dozen trips per year) to meetings and to individual states to provide technical assistance. The ideal candidate has state legislative experience, can handle a diverse range of tasks on several projects that cover multiple health policy topics, works well in a team environment, and can contribute to fundraising and grant management activities.
Note: This full-time position is dependent on grant funding and is subject to reduction in percentage of time covered or elimination if grant funding becomes unavailable.
