The WA Working Families Party Organizer wakes up every day thinking about how to bring new people—voters, non-voters, organizational members, and unaffiliated individuals—into the Party, how to deepen their engagement and establish the WFP as their political home, and how to support endorsed candidates in their path to victory.
A successful organizer at WA WFP understands that phone calls, house visits, and 1:1 meetings are the fundamental activities of building an effective membership driven organization. This person is a self-starter who can manage their own time effectively; has experience working on electoral and/or organizing campaigns; takes a deeply relational and transformational approach to organizing and politics; and has an enthusiasm for collaborative, innovative work.
The organizer in this position is eager to play their part in building a highly respected organization that is crafting a whole new approach to how we do politics, here in Washington and nationally.
This position is primarily focused on one-on-one engagement with prospective WFP supporters, activists, and party leaders to build the membership and power of the Washington WFP Chapter in order to (a) advance key advocacy campaigns and (b) elect WFP champions across the state.
Work Environment: Indoor work will be work-from-home through the duration of the position, although frequent field work (in-person meetings, door knocking, etc.) and travel to off-site locations for meetings and events—safely—are critical to the role. The position requires the ability to multitask frequently and to work sometimes irregular days and hours to fulfill the essential functions of the position.
Duration: This is a temporary position, which will end on November 30, 2021.
Salary: The position pays $3,500 to $4,000 per month. The final salary will be based on an internal equitable scale that takes into consideration years of experience, geographic location, and final job description. We also offer a robust benefits package for full time employees including paid time off; health, dental, vision, and life insurance; flexible spending accounts; retirement plan options; professional development funding; and remote work reimbursements.
Union Affiliation: WFP is a unionized workplace. This is a non-managerial, temporary role eligible to join WFP's staff bargaining unit only if extended beyond six months of employment. WFP's union employees are represented by the New York Metropolitan Area Joint Board, Workers United union.
