Office Administrator

Fair Elections Legal Network (FELN), a national, nonpartisan voting rights organization whose mission is to remove barriers to registration and voting for traditionally underrepresented constituencies, seeks to hire a motivated, organized and conscientious individual to fill a challenging full-time position. Responsibilities include supporting the organization President, the maintenance of office systems, and other staff assistance as needed. The Office Manager/Administrator will be responsible for bookkeeping, office upkeep, HR, and working with outside contacts for other support, such as IT when necessary. This is a perfect opportunity for an administrative professional or recent graduate with prior administrative experience looking to start a career in the non-profit advocacy and voting rights fields.

The job requires excellent written and oral communications skills, superior organizational skills and solid computer skills–including familiarity with mainstream business applications (word processing, spreadsheets, databases) and the Internet. Basic bookkeeping/budget-monitoring experience is strongly preferred. Successful candidates will be solutions-oriented, creative, public-interest minded and always focused on the details. They will possess a proactive problem solving attitude and the flexibility and good humor necessary among staff in a small office.

Our organization offers a competitive salary and benefits package commensurate with experience. Position available immediately. Please email cover letter with resume to jobs@fairelectionsnetwork.com. No calls please. FELN is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
