A downloadable position description is available here.
This is a rare opportunity to join a unique non-profit working to reinvent birth control options for dogs and cats worldwide. The Alliance for Contraception in Cats & Dogs (ACC&D) (www.acc-d.org) seeks a Coordinator to help the organization achieve its highest impact by providing project support and administrative coordination. The successful candidate will be a self-starter with demonstrated organizational, communication, collaborative, and interpersonal skills; great attention to detail; experience with Microsoft Office applications, QuickBooks, website and social media updates; and the motivation to work with a small and dedicated team to expand your skillset, knowledge of and impact in this field. Help change the world for animals without working on the frontlines – positions that can make animal welfare so emotionally challenging.
This position will be based out of ACC&D’s President’s home office in NW Portland and, over time, provide the opportunity to work the majority of the time remotely from your home. This position offers the potential for a flexible schedule between the hours of 8 to 6pm Monday to Friday. You will perform administrative duties and strengthen infrastructure as needed to support the functioning of the organization in relation to sound non-profit business practice, donor support and fundraising, project and meeting coordination, and event planning. Many of the organization’s projects use novel approaches to address present animal health and welfare challenges, meaning that the ideal candidate will enjoy thinking creatively and flexibly, and utilizing problem-solving skills when necessary.
The successful candidate will have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent, ideally in a relevant field (including but not limited to animal sciences, biology, business management, communications, or journalism). S/he will also have a minimum 3 years’ experience in administrative support, project coordination, or event planning. Experience in the animal health or welfare fields is desirable but not necessary—commitment to the organization mission and work is a must!
We want the best people and we don’t want any biases holding us back. We strongly encourage people of every color, orientation, age, gender, and origin to apply. Because we value a diverse workplace, we prioritize an inclusive climate absent of discrimination and harassment during the application process and after you join the team.
Interested candidates send a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 25th, 2019. To learn more about the mission and work of ACC&D, visit www.acc-d.org or our Facebook page.
