Published 1 month ago

VU Chicago is looking for a Database Coordinator to join our Leadership Team! This is a perfect role for you if you are a self-starter, geek out on data (in a good way!), and are up for supporting our work in tracking our impact, volunteer statistics, and supporting the management of our inventory. This role reports directly into the Executive Director, yet will likely work across many committees to support a variety of goals and projects. This role is expected to be based in Chicago.


Role Responsibilities:

  • Manage the capture of impact data after each monthly volunteer event.
  • Update volunteer database (based on attendance) on a monthly basis. Own distribution of t-shirts, pint glasses, gloves, and any other swag to volunteers at the bar. This would not include picking up items from the storage unit for each event (this would be handled by drivers).
  • Own management of inventory list, sending reminders post-event to the leadership team to update. Order items that have been depleted (i.e. wipes, nametags), submitting receipts to Finance Director.
  • Once every other month, Database Manager will re-organize storage unit, notifying leadership team of large changes
  • Other projects as identified!

Leadership Team Responsibilities:

  • Communicate via Slack with all VU Chicago board and committee members, as an open forum and method of organization
  • Participate in quarterly Leadership team meetings. This is typically a 1 hour commitment 4 times a year outside of normal business hours (~6pm start time)
  • Arrive at monthly events early and stay late to assist with set up and clean up of events
  • Attend a minimum of 10 monthly events a year
  • Time commitment ~1-3 hours/week

Qualities of an Ideal Candidate:

  • Extremely strong at organizing and tracking information
  • Experience with data and databases
  • Data visualization and/or analysis, a plus
  • Has a passion for volunteering!
