Downtown Seattle Foster Care Foundation Seeks Administrative Professional

Aug. 11, 2016 Administrative Assistant Jobs, Executive Assistant Jobs, Seattle Jobs


Are you an administrative professional looking for an opportunity to beef up your experience with executive-level support? Do you enjoy the idea of working with a team that is dedicated to improving foster care in the US?

Our client is the nation’s largest operating foundation entirely focused on foster care. Since 1966, they have worked to provide and improve and ultimately prevent the need for foster care in the United States. As advocates for change, our client is committed to their 2020 Strategy as an ambitious yet attainable goal to safely reduce the number of children in foster care and improve the lives of those who remain in care.

Decades of front-line experience make our client exceptionally qualified to identify various improvements in child welfare practices, and help states and counties implement them. They promote these changes by providing nonpartisan research to members of congress, state legislators and other policymakers so they may craft laws and policies to better the lives of children in foster care and their families. The foundation is headquartered in Seattle.

Currently, this client has partnered with Parker to hire an Administrative Specialist for a six-month contract. This is not your typical administrative position, as you will have a lot of exposure and interaction with our client’s Board and Executive Office.  You will support and coordination for the work of the Investments team. If you have supported a finance group and understand the vernacular and terms, you could be exactly what we’re looking for.

Additional responsibilities for the Administrative Specialist include:  

  • Travel scheduling, calendaring, expense reports, invoices
  • Put together materials for board meetings and investment committee meetings
  • Scheduling team meetings and potentially doing some note-taking
