Guerrilla Foundation is looking for an administrative and grantmaking support 

We are a radical philanthropic organisation and funder of European activist and grassroots social movements based in Berlin, Germany and founded in 2016. This year we went on a little adventure: we invited new donors to join our founder (and until then main funder) in a growing Funders Circle. We also are setting up an Activist Council to support our strategy and grantmaking. To get the extra work done, handle an increasing grant volume and streamline our internal processes as we grow, we are looking for an activist with a knack for handling administrative detail and managing internal processes. Unfortunately, because tasks related to our charitable status in Germany are included in this role, this job is exclusively geared towards people fluent in German.    

Main tasks 

  • Charitability geek: grant agreement compilation, annual report to the finance authority, first point of contact for grantees in legal and administrative matters
  • Finance whizz: Monthly accounting & management of expense claims from activists through our Open Collective account, first point of contact for our external accountant
  • Process overlord: documentation, streamlining and updating of internal processes and workflows

Support tasks

  • Communicating with and growing our circle of funders 
  • Calendar management & scheduling
  • Qualitative and quantitative analysis and evaluation of our grantmaking
  • Project management (updating Notion, facilitating & documenting team meetings and project meetings)

Skills & experience needed

  • Attention to detail & experience with handling various administrative tasks 
  • Excellent communication skills, fluency in German and English
  • Financial management 
  • Project management 
  • Ability to quickly get used to new software
  • Min. 2 years of relevant professional experience and personal involvement in social justice issues

Additional skills that would be great to have

  • Specific issue- and regional experience with European grassroots movements (while not necessary for the job) will be a massive plus and give you the chance to support the scouting of new groups 
  • Notion proficiency 
  • Facilitation skills 
  • Legal background 
  • Additional language skills

What you'll get

  • The chance to join our awesome virtual team part-time for some values-aligned work (while still reserving enough time for your activism)
  • Ability to work flexibly from anywhere in Europe
  • Supportive team that'll make space for you as a person and will hang out with you at an annual team retreat 
  • Opportunity to participate in our online community events and learn about the field of radical social justice philanthropy
  • Compensation in accordance with age, experience and circumstances 
  • Employment as freelancer with long-term contract or employment in Germany for German residents

We are looking to build a diverse team that is reflective of the communities we work with, and we are actively seeking applications from those who are marginalized and underrepresented. We are committed to providing reasonable accommodations to applicants and colleagues with disabilities as well as necessary provisions to ensure hiring equity, including during the application process.
