WHAT WILL YOU DO?
WHO ARE YOU?
Our team relies on significant cross-team collaboration to bring together all our diverse sets of skills, experience and knowledge. This allows us to take on a diversity of projects across approaches, sectors and topics, which requires extremely clear and smooth processes to reduce overhead and friction. Project managers and team members work across multiple projects, and the Project Assistant works to make this cross-team collaboration smooth, supporting the timely delivery of projects. You have a demonstrated interest in the use of tech and data within civil society, but you do not need to have expertise in a specific area nor do you need vast experience as an assistant. Our ideal candidate is committed to our mission, is passionate about or interested to learn about the work we do, sees opportunities for improvement and proactively supports their colleagues as they best can. If most of the following describes you, then you will be a great fit for our work and our team:
You are open, adaptable and enjoy collaborating with others. You diligently check things off your to do list. You communicate clearly, proactively and frequently. You often see patterns and opportunities to make things run smoother or more efficiently, and enjoy suggesting ways to improve processes. When you’re not sure about next steps, you think critically about what questions to ask or you give it your best try. You’re comfortable working in complex situations and taking on new responsibilities. You enjoy learning about new topics, and have a natural curiosity and openness. You enjoy solving problems. Our organisational values resonate with you.
