Associate Director of Fundraising and Communications (80% FTE)
Southeast Seattle Education Coalition (SESEC) is expanding and looking for a community-minded professional to join us as our Associate Director of Fundraising and Communications. This is a four-day a week (.8 FTE) exempt position with a salary range of $34,000-38,400, depending upon experience. This position may become full-time as funding becomes available.
Southeast Seattle Education Coalition is a coalition of community based organizations, schools, and parents/caregivers working together to improve education in SE Seattle. We believe by having a collective voice–one that is inclusive of communities of colors and those who are often missing from important conversations– we can advocate and see important changes for our children and families. SESEC’s work is divided into two broad categories: 1) advocacy/policy/systems change and 2) community building and communications.
The Associate Director of Fundraising and Communications supports SESEC’s work by building relationships with schools and partners that will help to drive our advocacy work and bring resources to SE Seattle. The following are the key responsibilities:
Fundraising and Communications (70%):
Administrative and Fiscal oversight (10%):
Community engagement and relationship building (10%):
Other duties as assigned (10%):
What you will get out of this:
This is a great opportunity for someone who wants not just a job, but an opportunity to grow a movement around quality and equitable education. Benefits include:
Other Information: Send a resume, cover letter and three professional references as one document to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you advance to the interview round we will ask you to provide two writing samples, one should be a grant proposal you authored.
Position is open until filled, first review date is Monday, 27 April 2015, 5.00 p.m.
Application Process: Because SESEC is fiscally-sponsored by the Vietnamese Friendship Association (VFA), all SESEC staff are employed by VFA and subject to VFA’s personnel policies. VFA is an equal opportunity employer. People of color and those from Southeast Seattle are strongly encouraged to apply.
At the March Southeast Seattle Education Coalition Meeting Seattle Public Schools’ School and Community Partnership office talked about their work. They sent these documents as a follow up. Thanks to Carri and Nicole for joining us and making these documents available. Looking forward to keeping the conversation moving forward!
