Executive Assistant, Office of the CEO

 Location: Austin HQ

The Opportunity

Reporting directly to the CEO, the Executive Assistant provides executive administrative support to the CEO and the Board of Directors. You would handle all scheduling and administrative duties for the CEO, serving as a gatekeeper and as the primary point of contact for internal and external stakeholders (staff, board members, donors, partners) on all matters pertaining to the Office of the CEO. You would organize and coordinate internal and external relations efforts for the CEO and create materials to support this (board packets, presentations, educational materials, infographics, internal newsletters, etc). You would help to manage the CEO’s consulting and speaking engagements, including creating materials, negotiating with clients, and booking travel. You’d oversee a variety of special projects for the CEO related to the organization’s growth, fundraising, marketing, and operations.  

In supporting the board, you would maintain the board portal (we use BoardEffect) and create all communications for the board of directors and support the Secretary’s governance and documentation duties. You would set up board meetings and events, handle all scheduling and administrative duties for the board, and book travel, meals, and other coordination as needed.

This is an outstanding opportunity for someone who wants an inside view to managing growth in a social enterprise, and who has a special interest in the role of communications in this unique environment. 

The ideal candidate will:

  Have at least two years of experience in a mission-driven work environment.

Be highly skilled in Powerpoint or Keynote, and proficient in Excel and Word

Have a high technical aptitude, and bonus if if you have exposure to BoardEffect, SalesForce and CRM Tools

Have strong writing, editing, verbal communication, administrative, and organizational skills

Have the ability to work independently on projects, from conception to completion

Be creative, flexible, and enjoy working in an environment that is entrepreneurial and always changing

Bonus points if you have experience with basic graphic design (like creating infographics)

 Is It You?

There’s a chance you may be the one we’ve been looking for if you meet the description above, and if:

  Organizing is your superpower. The Container Store is your idea of heaven. You probably even color code your closet.

You never forget a special occasion and you could probably sustain a major bonfire with your stash of ready-to-send birthday cards (not that you would ever burn them! The horror!)  

You live for details. All the pictures on your walls are perfectly coordinated, leveled, and aligned. Being off a centimeter would drive you nuts.
