Now hiring: Executive Assistant
The Community Center for Education Results (CCER), which supports the Road Map Project initiative, is recruiting for an Executive Assistant with a successful track record supporting executive-level staff and managing dynamic projects. The Executive Assistant will join a small collaborative team in a fast-paced environment and will provide direct support to CCER’s Executive Director and several other executives as needed. This position will support the execution of the organization’s top priorities and contribute to the effectiveness of the entire CCER team. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who enjoys problem solving, working in an administrative capacity, balancing competing priorities, and being a member of a busy team tackling complex work. The Executive Assistant will report to the Executive Director while working closely with the broader CCER and Road Map Project teams.
The current Executive Director will be transitioning out of her role in late 2019/early 2020. As this shift occurs, the Executive Assistant will begin reporting to the new Executive Director while helping to facilitate a smooth transition.
