Deadline: until filled
The Nebraska Association of Local Health Directors (NALHD) is hiring an Administrative/Project Assistant. This is a part-time position (approximately 28 hours a week). Several COPH students have worked with NALHD and had very good experiences. This would be a great way to work part time and become familiar with NE public health systems. While this position is primarily administrative in nature, depending upon the individual there could be room for taking on additional tasks. Read on for the full job description.
We are a fast-paced and exciting nonprofit professional association that is growing quickly. We support public health departments across Nebraska, and we value innovation and collaboration. You’ll be working alongside five other full- and part-time staff who are all committed to pushing each other to excellence while having each other’s backs and valuing everyone’s contributions.
As our Administrative and Project Assistant, you will coordinate high-level work in support of the Executive Director and other Staff. This means taking meeting minutes, answering phones, keeping calendars, ordering office supplies, sending and retrieving mail – typical tasks of Administrative Assistant positions. But it also means providing input on documents, editing and proofreading, troubleshooting, coordinating events, and “running with” whatever comes your way. You will be ready to excel at designated tasks but also willing to help with overflow work. We support and encourage initiative takers.
We’re looking for someone who can systematize procedures and processes while still being flexible enough to accommodate a dynamic workload. Priorities evolve quickly at NALHD. This is a perfect position for someone who knows how to work fast and smart and spend time wisely.
You need to be strong – and already up to speed – on computer technologies. You need to know your way around Word, Excel, Gmail, Google Calendar, Facebook, and Twitter. And, if you don’t know them already, you need to be comfortable with the idea of learning more about other online and computer-based tools like ShareFile, DropBox, GoToMeeting, Docusign, Vimeo, and Mailchimp.
