25.)  Executive Assistant to the Vice President for Communications, American Jewish World Service, New York, NY

 

Inspired by the Jewish commitment to justice, American Jewish World Service (AJWS) works to realize human rights and end poverty in the developing world. AJWS advances the health and rights of women, girls and LGBT people; promotes recovery from conflict, disasters and oppression; and defends access to food, land and livelihoods. AJWS pursues lasting change by supporting grassroots and global human rights organizations in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean and by mobilizing supporters in the U.S. to advocate for global justice. Working together, the AJWS community strives to build a more just and equitable world.

The individual must be proactive and take initiative in identifying problems and devising solutions, and must have robust interpersonal skills to help implement those solutions with a strong sense of judgment, discretion and tact. Finally, this individual must desire and feel comfortable working in a fast-paced office environment, which will not always conform to the standard hours of a conventional workday.  This position has a sizable administrative component, making strong organizational skills and attention to detail essential.

  • Manage, prioritize and improve the vice president’s to-do list, including monitoring deliverables and deadlines for the vice president;
  • Recruit, hire and manage the communications division interns;
  • Receive and screen all incoming calls and/or visitors to the vice president’s office and ensure appropriate follow-up to requests;
  • In vice president’s absence, monitor all communications and forward to the designated second-in-command as needed
  • Provide insights on communications strategies and tactics and be prepared to work with the entire communications team, AJWS colleagues, and contractors to implement communications strategies;
  • Draft, proofread and edit written materials for distribution on behalf of the vice president;
  • Work collaboratively with executive and program assistants to support the work of the executive team and the senior team;
  • Organize special events (i.e. all staff meetings, senior team retreats etc.) selecting venues, working with vendors, scheduling meetings, and preparing materials;
  • Collaborate with the finance department, the division project manager and the vice president to create and maintain the vice president’s budget;
  • Assist the project manager with maintaining the division’s budget
  • Execute special projects as needed;
  • Support the senior press officer on days he/she is absent or unavailable; and
  • Organize and maintain paper and electronic files.

 

Qualifications:

  • BA/BS or equivalent degree required;
  • 2+ years experience providing administrative or other kind of support in a dynamic, high-energy environment;
  • Experience in communications, journalism, nonprofit sector, advocacy or campaign work, including social media, digital, print, television, or radio a plus;
  • Excellent writing, editing and proofreading skills are a must;
  • Exceptionally organized, detail-oriented and able to manage multiple complex tasks;
  • Flexible work style with the ability to work under tight deadlines and with shifting priorities;
  • Creative and conceptual with an ability to “think outside the box;”
  • High level of professionalism with the ability to maintain sensitive and confidential information;
  • Track record of demonstrating sound judgment by making appropriate decisions and knowing when to take initiative;
  • Proficient in Microsoft Office applications;
  • Pleasant demeanor with exceptional interpersonal skills and a sense of humor;
