Open Positions

Executive Assistant to the President & CEO/Board Liaison –

When a President & CEO leads a world-class non-profit, they need an Executive Assistant who is skilled, diplomatic, dedicated, detail-minded and determined to solve problems before they arise. We’re looking for a professional with the high degree of emotional intelligence it takes to liaise with top donors and senior staff, the administrative strengths to manage a 24/7 international schedule and a donor database, and represent the boss as needed. The ideal candidate is a skilled communicator who can work independently and under pressure – with a sense of humor and a deep connection to our mission.  If you know the difference between what is merely important and what is essential and can read a room while taking notes and then take action, we’d like to meet you.

 

Is your idea of a great event one that creates buzz and connects well-connected, philanthropic individuals to our life-changing work? A gathering that builds and sustains community around shared passion for a better world? That’s ours too – and we’re looking for a creative, detail-oriented professional to bring that kind of expertise to reach out to our donors. We want nothing less than a collaborative leader who also has a great sense of humor – a diplomat who is both excited by the opportunity to reach out to newcomers and able to inspire new heights of involvement and commitment in our supporters. If that sounds like you, we invite you to apply for this unique opportunity to help raise the bar and build Jewish community.

 

If you are a PR & Marketing professional who has been looking to weave a combination of skill and desire to make your mark on Jewish L.A., you may have just stumbled on the perfect opportunity. You should have a background in public relations for a non-profit, know which messages resonate with Jews in our city and have the experience and contact list of a publicist in Los Angeles to pitch stories and get them out there in traditional and digital media. In short: Bring the mind to create, the chops to sell, and the hustle to get the job done. This is your chance to step up and lead and put what you’ve learned to work for the growth and good of the Jewish people. You’ll join imaginative and hard-working Creative Services professionals who are here to collaborate with you. Come on board and make this happen — together.
