You thrive working with mission-focused colleagues and are excited to enhance daily workflow and strengthen organizational effectiveness centered in racial equity. You will provide high-level administrative support to two executive team members, the Chief of Programs and Chief of Strategy, who oversee the management of all program areas, including strategy, planning, implementation, and evaluation.

Who We Are
Founded in 1969, the nonprofit National Employment Law Project (NELP) is a leading advocacy organization with the mission to build a just and inclusive economy where all workers have expansive rights and thrive in good jobs. Together with local, state, and national partners, NELP advances its mission through transformative legal and policy solutions, research, capacity building, and communications. Our victories over the last decade have impacted the lives of an estimated 100 million workers and their families. We lead and collaborate in fights for higher pay and just benefits, secure and safe jobs, and support at each stage in a worker’s life. We build worker power and we challenge rules that allow corporate harm and undue power. We are transforming precarious work by raising the floor so that every job is a good job and everyone who wants a job can have one. Together over the next decade, we will build Black, immigrant worker power and advance transformative solutions to achieve racial and economic justice.

NELP has a team of 45 staff people based across offices in New York City, Washington D.C., and Berkeley, CA, with a 12-person Board of Directors, an annual budget of $14M, and hundreds of partners in the field with whom we work to further our mission.

· Assist with programmatic administrative support related to hiring; processing, managing, and ensuring accuracy of financial items such as regrants and/or contributions to partners, team expenses, and vendor payments; and tracking contracts.
· Support increasing the organization’s impact by monitoring and maintaining our workplan tool (Airtable), providing weekly reports, and by monitoring and tracking partner events.
· Prepare for in-person and virtual meetings, including organizing and coordinating program and strategy leadership meetings (e.g., conducting background research, preparing summaries, coordinating invitations, logistics, production of materials in PowerPoint or other collateral, attending, creating notes or reports, and identifying next steps).

· Provide office management support.
· Actively contribute to NELP becoming an anti-racist organization that reflects and embodies our values.
