We seek a talented Organizer to build a strong team of volunteer poll workers, poll watchers and other election-related roles. Our right to vote is fundamental to all that we hope to accomplish; the Organizer is a crucial role that will ensure every eligible Georgian is able to cast a ballot.

  2. Assist with rapid response needs like texting, robocalls, and drafting scripts.
  3. Use digital tools to engage new volunteers, educate voters, and highlight our work on the ground.
  4. Report timely and accurate data to the Senior Field Manager.

They have demonstrated experience in managing volunteers, cultivating an outstanding volunteer experience, and moving projects forward. They are comfortable using data to inform decision-making strategy, appreciate the importance of reporting clean and accurate data, and possess a strong attention to detail.
  • Strong cross-team collaborator. ​The ideal candidate communicates with stakeholders early and often, closes the loop quickly on outstanding issues, and manages up and across to their colleagues, manager, and other team leaders.
  • Strong situational communicator, skilled at building bridges across lines of difference. ​The ideal candidate carefully adapts their written and verbal communications to meet the needs and preferences of a diverse group of stakeholders. They carefully craft tailored messages to each of the audiences they mobilize to action. Experience writing recruitment and educational materials for a diverse audience is a plus.
  • Self-starter who is highly skilled at managing up. ​The ideal candidate knows how to leverage limited manager or leader time to get the information needed to move decisions, and the work, forward. Works well with a team but also feels comfortable independently developing or running projects.
  • Tech savvy organizer. The ideal candidate has experience utilizing digital tools to recruit and train volunteers across a wide range of technological know-how and is patient when working with volunteers who may not be comfortable with technology.
