Job Description:

Communication Institute

Communication Institute (CI) is the administrative office that serves the European Leadership Forum (Forum). The Forum exists to unite, mentor, and resource Europe’s evangelical leaders. This happens first at the Forum’s annual, May meeting in Wisla, Poland. This year’s Forum was attended by close to 600 individuals from over 40 countries. As a result of it, we expect more than 300 seminars, leadership training events, and public lectures to occur across the European continent over the course of the next year. To learn more about the Forum, visit www.euroleadership.org.

 

Overall Responsibilities

The Part-Time Executive Assistant will provide support to the President by helping him manage his: 

  • Schedule (e.g. setting up meetings, assembling meeting materials)
  • Correspondence (e.g. taking dictation, writing Forum partners on his behalf)
  • Travel plans (e.g. book flights, hotels, etc.)
  • Presentations (e.g. creating PowerPoints, composing handouts)
  • Writing/research projects (e.g. compiling data, editing)

 Other tasks and projects will be assigned at the discretion of the President.

 

Qualifications

Applicants must possess an undergraduate degree in any field and be: 

  • Warm, clear, and professional in verbal and written communication
  • Highly organized and attentive to detail
  • Adept at multi-tasking
  • Able to work successfully in a dynamic environment characterized by constant change
  • A flexible team player
  • Spiritually and emotionally mature
  • Competent in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint

Prior administrative/office experience is necessary.

 

Prior experience as an administrative assistant (especially at the executive level) is strongly preferred.

 

An educational background and/or a strong interest in history, theology, and/or sociology will be considered an asset in light of the research duties associated with the position.

  

Terms and Compensation

On its own, the ESI Coordinator is an hourly, part-time position of 20-30 hours per week.

 

However, as of the posting of this job opening, CI is also currently looking to hire a European Strategic Initiative (ESI) Coordinator on a part-time basis. The Executive Assistant position can either be filled by one person working part-time, or it could be combined with the part-time ESI Coordinator position to create one full-time position filled by one person. Find more information on the ESI Coordinator position at the bottom of this page.

 

In whatever form the position takes, starting compensation will be based on skill level and experience.

 

Benefits

All CI employees travel to the Forum in Europe (at CI’s expense) each May to administrate the

Forum. Following the Forum, all employees are given a week of paid vacation during which they are encouraged to tour Europe (at their own expense).

 

As a part-time position, there are no additional time-off or health benefits.

 

If combined with the ESI Coordinator position this would form one full-time position. In addition to traveling to the Forum, all full-time employees start out with two additional weeks of paid vacation along with nine paid holidays. CI also offers health benefits to full-time employees, beginning their second year of employment.

 

Contact

Applicants should email a cover letter, resume, and two writing samples to Liz Shuter at hr@euroleadership.org and indicate if they are interested in one or both positions.
