The Congressional Research Service (CRS) seeks an Administrative Support Clerk for the Foreign Affairs, Defense and Trade Division to provide frontline client service to callers and visitors and administrative support to the division.
Within CRS, the Foreign Affairs, Defense and Trade Division's work emphasizes analyses of security, political and economic developments at a global level as well as in every region of the world. Experts examine political, economic, and security relations between the United States and other nations; development and foreign assistance; human rights; international organizations; and transnational issues such as terrorism, refugees, crime, and nonproliferation. National security analysis includes a focus on national security and defense strategy, the U.S. defense budget, weapons systems, intelligence, military compensation, and military facilities at home and around the world. Trade analysts assess global economic issues, including trade agreements, exports, imports, tariffs, and international financial questions. More information about CRS is available on the CRS Careers website.
The ideal candidate will be proficient in Microsoft Office Suite applications, have knowledge of client relationship management software and systems, be able to provide excellent customer service, and must exercise sound judgment.
The selectee will provide administrative and clerical support to division staff and managers, perform specialized data entry and data management-related tasks, prepare and draft a variety of correspondence and other written materials using standard word processing software, and maintain official administrative files and records. The selectee's duties will include greeting, screening, and referring visitors; taking and delivering telephone messages; and referring callers to division staff. The selectee will also be responsible for handling routine inquiries relating to office support services, supplies, equipment, forms, and administrative approval processes and procedures.
CRS works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate, regardless of party affiliation. As a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress, CRS has been a valued and respected resource on Capitol Hill for nearly a century.
CRS is well known for analysis that is authoritative, confidential, objective and nonpartisan. Its highest priority is to ensure that Congress has immediate access to the nation's best thinking on public policy issues of interest to its Members and Committees.
