Associate Director + Operations Manger

What you can expect:
  • Colleagues who are as committed to moving the needle as they are to creating a fun and collaborative team environment with partners and clients from all over the advocacy landscape. 

  • Room to be creative, entrepreneurial and innovative.

  • Opportunity to evolve and redefine your role as the job and organization changes. 

  • A little team that packs a big punch on the hottest issues of the day.

In this role you'll be expected to:
  • Lead and advise on systems for our operations related to HR, payroll, benefits, hiring, equipment, office space, and more. We are interested in a colleague who will regularly evaluate our setup and bring ideas for how to better organize ourselves, support each other, run the organization, adapt as we grow, etc. 

  • Provide operations and fundraising support to our clients, many of whom work in the climate change and democracy spaces. This work includes project management, administration, and  fundraising -- assisting with outreach, grant-writing, and reporting to funders.   

  • Be very organized, proactive and on top of deadlines. You keep administrative details and to-do’s straight, and make sure things don’t fall through the cracks.  

  • Write. We have a range of writing support functions we provide to our clients, such as editing or drafting media materials, research summaries, or fundraising proposals and reports. You will have experience with that kind of writing, knowledge of and interest in key policy and hot-button political issues, and demonstrable interest in presenting concise and compelling written materials. 

  • Communicate regularly with clients/contractors/external allies.

In addition to substantive policy, strategy, and funding-related writing and research, admin and management related work would constitute roughly half of your time.
