We are currently seeking a fill time Operation Coordinator to join our Administration team and provide support for both our programs and operational teams. The Operations Coordinator is responsible for handling the day-to-day details of the office such as tech and facilities support, vendor and client group scheduling, ordering supplies, completing HR generalist duties and supporting finance and various programs and teams. This position interacts with and supports all staff at Amara and is truly a unique position. The ideal candidate is both an excellent communicator and collaborator who is comfortable managing multiple priorities.
Amara believes that a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace culture enhances our ability to fulfill our mission. We strive for equality and justice in the way people are treated and the opportunities they have to succeed by working to address racism, unequal treatment and other barriers to inclusion. We strongly encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds (including BIPOC, the LGBTQ+ community, veterans, and people with disabilities) to apply and join us in our work.
The Operations Coordinator reports to the Operations Manager and works closely with Finance and our programs teams. Responsibilities may include, but are not limited to, the following;
HR Support (30%)
General Administration and Program Support (20%)
Office Management and Facilities (15%*)
This is a full-time position (40 hours per week) with an hourly wage of $21.64/hour. Generous personal leave and benefits package, including paid time off, paid sabbatical, health, vision and dental insurance, 401k with a company match, life and disability insurance.
This position is currently 80% remote / 20% in-office** and will be full-time in office once it is safe to fully return to working onsite.
*Facilities duties are largely curbed during the pandemic due to lack of in-office staffing but will resume once our staff re-enter the offices for regular work.
**Worksite information during the COVID-19 Pandemic: Currently, our offices are closed, except for a few key services that we provide, and our staff are largely working from home. Due to some unique duties of the Operations Coordinator, which must be accomplished in-person, this position works approximately 20% in-office at our Seattle Location. This means a frequency of working in the offices ~1-2 days per week with occasional additional in-office visits to meet vendors or assist with in-person special projects. We are dedicated to maintaining a safe work environment with robust pandemic protocols, PPE supplies and ample space for our staff to work safely alone, if their position requires in-office work.
