We are looking for a responsible Administrative Assistant to perform a variety of administrative and clerical tasks for our non-profit organization that focuses on watershed management and environmental issues. Duties of the Administrative Assistant include providing support to our team of managers and volunteers, assisting in daily office needs and managing our foundation’s general administrative activities.
Administrative Assistant responsibilities include making meeting arrangements, preparing reports, contact management, basic bookkeeping and maintaining appropriate filing systems. The ideal candidate should have good oral and written communication skills, especially with social media, and be able to organize their work using tools, like MS Excel and office equipment. The Admin Assistant will help ensure the efficient and smooth day-to-day operation of our office.
The Administrative Assistant will also be assigned research and program development tasks that involve them directly in the educational activities and programs of the Arroyo Seco Foundation, such as Hahamongna Native Plant Nursery, fish recovery programs in the Arroyo Seco and the Los Angeles River, habitat restoration and stream cleanups.
This would be an excellent opportunity for an experienced administrator, secretary or office worker who wants to give back to the community or for a younger worker who is eager to learn and cares about environmental issues. If that's you, we’d like to meet you.
