Community Solutions (CS) is seeking a very detail-oriented and self-motivated contractor to support our our small but mighty General Operations (GenOps) team as a Finance and Administrative Assistant. The GenOps team strives to create an optimal environment at CS for our staff to grow, thrive, and work seamlessly towards ending homelessness and the conditions that create it. Over a 6-month period, the contractor will provide part-time assistance with bookkeeping, management of insurance policies, government compliance, and office administration.
Community Solutions is a hardworking team of social problem solvers working to end homelessness and the conditions that create it. We see these challenges as systems design problems, not just resource issues. Our team helps communities use the best problem solving tools from multiple sectors, such as design-thinking and quality improvement, to advance the design, coordination and delivery of lasting, root cause solutions.
Since 2011, we’ve helped US communities find homes for more than 175,000 homeless Americans at a taxpayer savings of more than $1.4b. Eleven of those communities have ended either chronic or veteran homelessness outright. We are led by Macarthur Fellow and internationally recognized innovator Rosanne Haggerty. Our work has been featured on 60 Minutes and the New York Times and recognized by the White House, the United Nations and the Smithsonian.
Community Solutions seeks leaders at every level: extraordinary, mission oriented people not satisfied with the status quo. We are a team of values-driven innovators motivated by results. We eagerly seek and support diverse applicants. We pride ourselves in developing an inclusive workplace culture that encourages staff to bring their whole selves to work every day.
Contractor will be paid $22/hour for a maximum of 16 hours/week or 70 hours/month for 6 months. The contract will be assessed at the end of 2018 to determine if assistance should be expanded or terminated.
Contractor will work 2 days per week from the CS central office in Lower Manhattan and will occasionally be required to travel to Brooklyn office located at 519 Rockaway Avenue for periodic support duties.
