Job Title: Executive Assistant

Reports To: Executive Director

Supervises, if applicable position(s): Administrative Assistant

Worksite Designation: Occassional

Organizational Overview:

The SEIU Healthcare 1199NW Multi-Employer Training Fund (Training Fund) is a non-profit, labor/management partnership between major healthcare employers and the largest healthcare union in Washington State. The Training Fund was formed in 2008 and is a statewide program that addresses the workforce needs of participating employers and supports the career, knowledge, and skill aspirations of SEIU Healthcare 1199NW members. The Training Fund is the sponsor of the state-registered Health Care Apprenticeship Consortium (HCAC) and of the Virtual Healthcare Institute (VHI) serving a range of regional employers, unions, union members, and student candidates.

Position Overview:

The Executive Assistant (EA) is a highly responsible position. The EA provides administrative and secretarial services to relieve the Executive Director (ED) of daily administrative details so they can concentrate on the significant aspects of their position. The EA works primarily with the Executive Director. However, they also provide scheduling and travel support for the Deputy Director (DD). The Executive Assistant provides the necessary leadership skills to work effectively with management, staff, members, unions, employers, and board trustees.

The work involves applying knowledge of the executive’s work objectives and viewpoints and representing the executive within the delegated scope of authority. Ensures optimal time management for the assigned executive by overseeing email, schedule, calendar, travel arrangements, meeting support, and answering/prioritizing communications/correspondence. The EA offers administrative support to the Leadership Team (LT) and other staff as delegated by the ED. The EA is also the backup for the Administrative Assistant. Although responsible for assisting a key executive, this position does not have independent executive authority.

The EA will be exposed to sensitive information and must maintain strict confidence.

This position requires a high degree of personal initiative, flexibility, and personal judgment in all assignments, strong communication and interpersonal skills, the ability to organize and prioritize tasks to ensure smooth workflow, excellent work standards, and an active interest in providing excellent customer care. Be able to prioritize and shift as needs evolve, with minimal supervision.

The Executive Assistant will be able to work independently on projects, from conception to completion, and must be able to work under pressure at times to handle various activities. Duties are performed to promote a team concept and reflect the Training Fund’s mission, vision, and values. Fundamental to this position is the ability to address and solve customer service requests in a friendly and professional manner.

The position requires considerable knowledge of the Training Fund, policies, and practices in making routine administrative decisions and handling non-routine situations. The EA may function in a “lead” role about ongoing work or special project- or team-oriented assignments. They may be responsible for office coordination and/or oversight of lower-level administrative/clerical employees. Work involves the development of moderately complex spreadsheets, presentations, or graphic materials. They will also need to be comfortable learning and working in Salesforce.

This position and others in the Training Fund promote equity in recruitment and retention into all Training Fund programs and safe operations of all Training Fund activities.
