You — the administrative support whiz looking for a part-time position working for something you can believe in. People describe you as:
- A good communicator
- Comfortable working in an open environment with a lot going on
- Good at shifting between tasks quickly
- Someone who makes others feel welcomed
Us — the statewide bike advocacy nonprofit in the nation’s #1 Bicycle Friendly State:
- A great team of staff, board members, and volunteers and supporters who grow bicycling through education for school and family biking, information for local advocates and riders, promotion of bike travel/tourism, and effective public policy work to pass laws, support their implementation, and improve conditions on the ground.
- A cool work space in the heart of Seattle’s Pioneer Square with easy bike and transit connections and indoor bike parking. (That is to say, we all bring our bikes inside.)
- The organization working for the past 27 years to make bicycling accessible, convenient, safe, and fun.
You don’t need to be an expert on bike gear or a speedy high-mileage rider. You should be passionate about creating the conditions that enable people of all ages and abilities to ride bicycles.
You’re someone who can relate effectively to people who come in with diverse backgrounds and different levels of biking experience. They come to us seeking advice about bike travel, commuting, family biking, places to ride, and other information related to bicycling.
You’re the kind of person who welcomes the learning opportunities you’ll have in the position and the chance to own the smooth operational success of some of our programs, along with contributing to the success of others.
Sound perfect? Read the details in the Administrative Coordinator_2014_Job Description. Send a cover letter highlighting both your skills and your interest in our mission along with a resume and names/contact information for three references to office@WAbikes.org with the subject line “Administrative Coordinator application”.
We’ll begin reviewing applications Wednesday, August 6, 2014. Position is open until filled.
CHANGE OF TIMELINE FROM ORIGINAL POSTING: We will conduct interviews around third or fourth week of August and anticipate having someone in the position by mid-September. Start date is somewhat flexible if the right person has special circumstances.
You’ll be right in the thick of things as we ramp up toward our big annual auction November 15 and beyond — the bike advocacy season runs all year long.
