RFPU-NW is seeking an administrative assistant to join our organization in a part-time role, intended to average 20 hours per week, with flexible hours.

Position Description:

The administrative assistant will primarily function to support our executive board (RFPU-NW residents) as well as the Executive Director and Associate Director, two full time labor organizers employed by RFPU-NW. 

The administrative assistant will be trained by the Executive and Associate Directors in their duties. Ideally, the candidate will have interest and/or experience in the labor movement, and/or healthcare. If the candidate has interest, there will be opportunities to expand job duties into a variety of other work, including political advocacy, member engagement, media relations, inter-union cooperation, among other work.

It is vital that the administrative assistant believes in and supports the mission of the labor movement, as much of our work specifically requires challenging the status quo, not only within the UW organization but in local, state, and national sociopolitical contexts.

Position Responsibilities:

  • Manage the schedule and calendar for the RFPU-NW board and working groups
  • Manage bi-monthly membership lists and assist with membership growth
  • Assist in social media engagement, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn
  • Arrange financial reimbursements for members and board members
  • Manage benefit programs, including the childcare fund and grant program
  • General website maintenance including updating with upcoming events – Negotiations, Grievances, Publications, Benefit Programs, etc. 
  • Respond to emails from members
  • Arrange logistics for board meetings, including (at times) food
  • Assisting with membership event coordination
  • Other administrative tasks

Reporting:

This position reports to the Executive Director, Associate Director, and Executive Board. 

Required knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

  • 1-3 years of experience as an administrator
  • Proficiency in Google suite and Slack
  • Ability to work both independently and as part of a team
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, and effective interpersonal skills
  • Willingness to operate in a flexible, less-structured environment – with sometimes irregular hours

Preferred, but not necessary:

  • Understanding of the medical training field
  • Experience with online organizing and social media
  • Proficiency with WordPress or website maintenance 
  • Prior membership in a labor union

There is no degree requirement so long as the candidate has sufficient professional experience.

The candidate will preferably be able and willing to transition to full time employment potentially within the first year after hire.
