Description

Jewish Community Project (JCP) seeks a skilled, friendly and highly responsible professional to join our Facilities and Events Team in lower Manhattan. This individual will support the “behind the scenes” set-up and break-down of classroom and event logistics, as well as cleaning, maintenance, and other tasks required in the operation of a thriving community center. JCP operates a 10,000 square foot school facility, an office space, and produces regular programs for adults, children and families at other locations in lower Manhattan.

This position is FLSA non-exempt and is eligible for overtime pay. Given the nature of the work and the organization, availability after hours, on weekends (Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons) and secular and Jewish holidays is sometimes required. There is approximately one or more weekend commitment per month. The organization has an appropriate days off policy to balance these occasional additional needs. Regular weekly work hours will vary depending on organizational needs but will be approximately 12:00-8:30 PM Mondays and Tuesdays and 9:00-5:30 Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, most weeks. This position is full time, with opportunities for over-time and carries eligibility for health insurance, pension, transit and other employee benefits.
