Job Description

Speak For The Public Interest with New Mexico PIRG

Every day, whether it’s in Washington, D.C., a state capitol, or a corporate boardroom, someone is making a decision that will affect all of us — it could be about our health, our safety, or our democracy.

Special interest groups spend billions of dollars to influence these decisions. Someone needs to speak for the public interest. As a New Mexico PIRG Fellow, that’s what you’ll do.

What It Means To Be A Fellow

As a fellow with New Mexico PIRG, you won’t just sit behind a desk. You’ll be out in the real world, helping us call on policymakers to create a 21st century transportation system for New Mexico residents, or to reduce the overuse of antibiotics in the food industry. Whether it’s recruiting new groups to join a coalition, speaking at a town hall, organizing a news event or rally, or meeting with an editorial board, you’ll help New Mexico PIRG do what it takes to get results.

This is a full-time, paid two-year program, expressly designed to prepare future leaders with U.S. PIRG. We look for smarts, leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, and an eagerness to learn. We value experience organizing, including building campus groups.

Pay & Benefits

The target annual compensation for this position is $26,500 in the first year. New Mexico PIRG offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement. To learn more visit jobs.uspirg.org.
