Solidarity Center seeks to hire a highly organized, detail-oriented administrative assistant to handle a range of logistics and clerical functions for its Organizational and Leadership Development team. Since this department touches all of Solidarity Center's areas of work, it offers a unique opportunity for someone to learn about how nonprofit organizations function, while deepening their knowledge and skills related to the operational side of international development. A basic understanding of international issues is important for success. As a mission-driven organization, we also seek someone who shares in our social justice vision and values.
This individual must be able to handle multiple tasks with high levels of accuracy and keen attention to detail. This will include both light financial reporting and writing/editing in English. We are looking for someone who is organized and has good communication and people skills, as the Administrative Assistant will exchange information and coordinate with other departments across the organization. This will include interacting with field offices worldwide so this individual should be comfortable working with people from diverse backgrounds and be flexible in accommodating different time zones. Proficiency in a non-English language is desirable, though not required.
