The Candidate – Who Are You?

You are able to enthusiastically function within a fast-paced, entrepreneurial service culture.  You are passionate about excellent customer service and ensuring client needs are anticipated and met.  You like working on a team while also bringing initiative and creativity to your role.

You thrive on organization and order.  You are known as someone who pays attention to details and is committed to the details being done well.  This attention to detail does not prevent you from juggling multiple client and company commitments.  You also excel in verbal and written communication, and display a high level of professionalism and customer service in client-facing interactions.

As this role will include discussion of sensitive information with clients, you are known for your discretion and good judgement.

Our team numbers five, including you.  As a small team working with clients on resilience, we aim to create an environment of mutual support so that we remain resilient and to work closely together while also respecting the differing roles of team members.  Past colleagues would describe you as someone whom actively participates in building and maintaining productive working relationships with other team members.

We are a virtual company and every team member works from their residence or other location of convenience.  We believe in flexibility and work-life balance.  Because we serve a global population and respond to client critical incidents and emergencies, there are times that priority work may occur outside the typical working hours of 9am-5pm.   To promote collaboration and aid personal flexibility we rely heavily on technology to communicate, collaborate and document our work.  You are comfortable navigating and using technology, including using Google Apps.

In addition to the qualities listed above, you have a college/university Bachelor’s degree.  As the majority of our clients are international humanitarian and development organizations, your prior experience working in such organizations or working or living outside the United States is an asset. Prior experience working in mental health, social service, staff care is also an advantage, though not a requirement.  Fluency in English is required; fluency in Spanish, French or Arabic will set you apart as a candidate.

We offer competitive compensation, commensurate with qualifications and experience.  We offer health insurance, a 401k plan, three weeks of paid vacation and 10 paid holidays a year.
