POSITION OVERVIEW

The successful candidate will lead accounting and human resources at Georgia Appleseed and work closely with the Executive Director and Board of Directors. You will be responsible for setting strategic goals for financial management, human resources, and office management. In addition, you will be responsible for entering financial transactions into QuickBooks, monthly accounting requirements, financial reporting and forecasting, and determining budgets.

You will be a part of a dynamic and highly collaborative team of seven full-time employees devoted to advancing justice for children across Georgia.

Georgia Appleseed is a public interest law center that advances justice through law and policy reform and community engagement. We are particularly focused on supporting children experiencing poverty, children with disabilities, and Black, brown, LGBTQ and other children who experience the effects of institutional bias, racism, and discrimination. We focus our passion, energy, and resources on three main goals: (1) dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline to keep kids in school and out of the criminal justice system; (2) promote supports for students with behavior and learning challenges to ensure that they are able to succeed in school, and (3) ensure children and their families have stable, healthy housing.

Georgia Appleseed succeeds because every team member contributes to our collaborative spirit and enthusiasm for our mission. Our Finance and Human Resources Manager exemplifies that spirit and enthusiasm.
