The fight for human rights is at a critical time, not only in the US but around the world. Come work with WITNESS to power up people and organizations using visual media to amplify important stories and catalyze campaigns for change. Some of the people we've worked with include activists in Syria using video as evidence of possible war crimes, media collectives in Brazil documenting rampant police violence, and outraged Americans who are standing up to incidents of hate. You can be a part of supporting their successes.
The Executive & Program Assistant will have an important role in planning and coordinating our annual team retreat, when all of our global staff will come together. The Assistant will work closely with the Director’s Team to ensure smooth handling of administrative tasks and processes, including scheduling, note taking, credit card reconciliations, and knowledge management. The Assistant will provide key support during Board of Director’s committee calls and meetings. This position will work closely with our Program Team to support our Monitoring & Evaluation systems.
This is the perfect opportunity for someone who has a passion for nonprofit management, human rights and social justice, organizing information, administration, supporting programs, and building relationships in a professional network. This is a great learning experience for those interested in nonprofit leadership, board relationships, international advocacy, and how a successful International NGO is run.
