The Public Interest Network runs organizations committed to a cutting-edge vision of a better world, a set of core values, and a strategic approach to change. We work on a wide variety of important issues, from clean energy to product safety, that highlight the need for a reassessment of our economic values and a new approach to politics. Our campaigns challenge decision-makers and the rest of us to stop tolerating problems that are increasingly absurd in an age of advancing technology and growing abundance.

We’re seeking a top-notch administrator to help run the operations of The Public Interest Network’s state offices and organizations. Working closely with our staff on the ground in 29 states, such as MassPIRG executive director Janet Dominitz, Environment Texas state director Luke Metzger, and Environment California state director Laura Deehan, the administrator plays a critical role in providing the backbone that allows our state offices and organizations to be successful. Specifically, the administrator plays a key role in: 

Working with our team:

  • Managing logistics and support for over 50 staff in our state offices
  • Working closely with other departments to set goals and action plans
  • Ensuring staff and organizational deadlines are met and holding those accountable when deadlines are not met.

System Administration:

  • Managing our systems effectively
  • Data analysis
  • Identifying areas to innovate and improve efficiency
  • Training our advocates on how to implement systems

Managing department operations:

  • Reporting on key departmental metrics
  • Performing regular database maintenance
  • Creating and managing budgets 
  • Managing contracts with external vendors 
  • Coordinating the work between advocates on the ground and internal Public Interest Network departments
  • Helping facilitate meetings with our team and boards

Qualifications

Qualified applicants need to be goal-driven and sharp, with great problem-solving skills, excellent judgement and discretion and the ability to oversee significant projects.  Applicants must be detail-oriented and highly organized, with a friendly and professional demeanor and the maturity to manage confidential and/or sensitive information. They should be driven by the idea of building a non-profit organization and have an outstanding work ethic while being flexible enough to pivot to prioritize whatever projects are most timely & important. Finally, a successful applicant is a problem solver who has the drive to succeed.

Relevant administrative experience, preferably in an activist, nonprofit or political organization, a plus but not a requirement.
