    The Labor Liaison supports the work of the Labor Department, primarily by serving as a program officer for the Access United program. The Liaison is responsible for training community partners on opportunities in the union trades and being a resource to them as they support candidates through career exploration.

    The role requires a highly resourceful individual with strong conversational skills, self-motivation, public speaking and organizational skills.
