Skills

You're a mover, a shaker and an avid fundraiser
You're eager to learn. You're inspired to change the world. You know that funding water projects in developing nations can do this. You're committed to charity: water's mission and solving the world water crisis.

You're articulate, direct and professional
You're more than capable of providing information concisely and effectively to companies reaching out to get involved -- you're confident and capable of representing charity: water in any form of communication.

You ask questions
You don't assume. Instead, you learn a system inside and out so you can make the most of your experience. You're not afraid to say you don't know. You see critique as a good thing and hope to learn from it. 

You have the basics down pat
You know how to best use iOS applications, Excel, Salesforce, and online tools to manage logistics, reports and contact information. You're an expert at setting up documents and systems in a way that can be understood by anyone. 

You're independent and self-motivated
You relish the chance to own your projects and you can handle a wide variety of tasks without constant supervision. 

Commitment

We're currently looking for a student or recent graduate to start in early January and join us through the Spring semester. We'll need you for 15-20 hours, 2-3 days a week. Please only apply if you are located in the New York City area.

Compensation
