Summary

American Progress has an immediate opening for a Finance Assistant. The Finance Assistant will be exposed to an extremely wide range of responsibilities and opportunities. They will help to optimize the chief financial officer’s (CFO) work and that of the Finance team, driven by American Progress’ mission “to improve the lives of all Americans, through bold, progressive ideas as well as strong leadership and concerted action, with the aim of not only changing the conversation but changing the country.”

They will join a dynamic team of colleagues to assist in strengthening the team’s work and supporting American Progress’ five crosscutting priorities:

The Finance Assistant will be exposed to the most sensitive company information to which others may not be privy; discretion is essential.

  • Prepare for internal and external meetings. When needed, participate directly in meetings and follow up with relevant parties.
  • Exercise judgment on priority of messages, meetings, CFO tasks, and incoming materials from principals and others.
  • Act as liaison between the Administration, Technology, and Finance departments; anticipate needs from the Finance team.
  • Handle confidential and nonroutine information and matters.
  • Make travel arrangements, submit and track internal requests, and organize meetings and group events.
  • File, proofread, and edit documents, charts, tables, and graphs.
  • Perform other duties as assigned.


Requirements and qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent combination of education and experience.
  • At least one year of administrative experience.
  • Strong writing skills.
  • Ability to anticipate, prioritize, organize, and multitask.
