Description

Administrative Assistant

The Appellate Project (TAP) is expanding its team with the addition of an Administrative Assistant. As the organization’s third staff member, this position offers a unique opportunity to grow TAP’s presence as we strive to create a diverse and inclusive culture within our highest courts. The ideal candidate will have a passion for racial equity issues and enjoy the innovation, creativity, and collaboration required in a start-up nonprofit environment.

The Administrative Assistant is integral to the success of TAP’s growth. If you enjoy building community and are excited to support programming that aims to redefine how we think about racial equity in our highest courts, we encourage you to apply!

About The Appellate Project

The Appellate Project is the first organization focused on empowering law students of color to become the next generation of attorneys and judges in our highest courts.

The appellate courts—the Supreme Court and Courts of Appeals—decide what our laws mean and how they apply to all of us. Appellate attorneys and judges make decisions that affect all aspects of our personal lives: our ability to vote, how we are policed, our religious freedom, the quality of our education, our workplaces, healthcare, immigration protections, and much more.

Although many appellate decisions disproportionately impact communities of color, people of color remain greatly underrepresented as both attorneys and judges in our highest courts. Our mission is to change that. Learn more at www.theappellateproject.org.



Requirements

We recognize that an individual’s lived experience is a valued skillset, and that people gain skills through a variety of personal, professional, and educational opportunities. When reviewing applications we take a broad look at the experience of each candidate. These are the skills we are most looking for:

  • A demonstrated commitment to racial equity, which is the heart of our work;
  • Eagerness to learn new skills and take initiative, anticipate problems, and develop creative and effective solutions, understanding that you are a vital part of a small team;
  • A knack for detail, data, and logistics;
  • Highly organized with excellent time management skills, and ability to excel at multi-tasking, prioritizing, and meeting deadlines;
  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to build relationships and represent the organization to the public, as well as interface with staff, external partners, funders, and consultants;
  • Strong writing and verbal skills. You can communicate information clearly, especially via presentations, reports, memos, and other related materials;
  • Ability to give and take feedback as part of a learning culture committed to achieving better results;
  • A commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, with a demonstrated ability to work with diverse individuals;
  • Proven ability to maintain confidentiality with sensitive information;
  • Comfort with G Suite, Microsoft Office, mail merge, and Zoom, or a willingness to learn;
  • Familiarity with design platforms like Canva and/or some experience designing public-facing materials such as flyers, social media graphics, and reports;
  • Willingness to travel at least 10-15% of the time (when safe to do so);
  • Familiarity with a database/CRM tool, social media, website editors (such as SquareSpace or WordPress), and email communication platforms such as Mailchimp is a plus;
  • Familiarity and experience with the legal system, and in particular the appellate system, or a willingness to learn.

About the Role

The primary duties and responsibilities for this position include:

Programmatic and communications support, such as:

  • Coordinating communications, including screening emails and calls, responding to external inquiries, finalizing and coordinating program communications, and managing email lists;
  • Supporting program administration for both virtual and in-person events, including working with leaders to send event communications, develop and administer event registration, track event participation, and coordinate logistics;
  • Preparing, editing, formatting, and distributing TAP documents and communications, as well as updating and managing program communications, including fact sheets, web content, newsletters, success stories, and social media; and
  • Participating in internal and external meetings as needed, actively taking notes, and following up on action items. This could include attending events related to TAP’s work and sharing insights and feedback that could be valuable to program activities.

Supporting staff, such as:

  • Working closely with the TAP team to manage calendars, coordinate meetings, draft routine correspondence and agendas, and assemble meeting materials;
  • Assisting with recruitment and onboarding of interns, volunteers, and staff;
  • Assisting with development efforts, such as helping with mailings, sending acknowledgment letters, updating our donor database system, and supporting the creation of content for fundraising communications; and
  • Working collaboratively with our small team and providing creative input to continuously improve our work, both internally and externally.

Other administrative support, such as:

  • Managing technology platforms, including updating our donor database and data in our CRM platforms;
  • Building and maintaining vendor relationships;
  • Developing an organized internal process/system for administrative work that has room for flexibility; and
  • Booking travel and hotel arrangements and creating itinerary and expense reports.

This is a full-time exempt position. The salary for this position begins at $50,000 and is commensurate with experience. Benefits include paid vacation, paid sick leave, paid holidays, stipends for technology and a home office, and professional development resources.

The position is located in Washington, DC. It is currently remote but in the future may transition to being based in an office. For now, the right candidate can be located anywhere in the U.S. if they are willing to travel to DC periodically. Occasional evening and weekend work will be required.

The Appellate Project is an equal opportunity employer. We prohibit unlawful discrimination against any employee or applicant for employment based on race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, age, national origin, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation and/or identity, criminal record, marital status, or any other basis prohibited by law.

Research has shown that traditionally marginalized communities (people of color, people with disabilities, etc.) often don’t apply for jobs if they don’t meet every single qualification. If you think you can do this job but don’t meet every qualification, we encourage you to still apply.

How to Apply
