Executive Assistant

Company: A Wider Circle
Location: Silver Spring
Posted on: June 13, 2019

Job Description:

Executive AssistantAfter nearly 18 years of working with individuals and families living in poverty, A Wider Circle is adding to its efforts by focusing on large-scale systemic change. Developing new income standards, a comprehensive action plan to end poverty, and focusing also on what is possible on individual and collective levels are all part of the work of the executive and of the organization, as a whole. This has brought an even greater demand to our doorstep, and is a strong complement to our on-the-ground programming, which serves more than 25,000 children and adults in poverty annually.

A Wider Circle's founder, President & CEO plays a central role both in our efforts to build a movement to end poverty in this country, and in the strategic planning necessary to run our daily programming. Key to these efforts is a strong, dedicated Executive Assistant.

The Executive Assistant will serve as the right hand to the President & CEO. The position is for a passionate individual with excellent organizational and writing skills, and a strong commitment to the movement to end poverty.

More than a typical administrative position, this is a high-energy job in which the person in the role will encounter daily work addressing many different aspects of societal change. Flexibility and adaptability are a must, including the ability to work outside of a traditional schedule, as needed.

The Executive Assistant will write, edit, take dictation, manage the schedule, and attend presentations - helping the President & CEO to push our mission to the community at-large and lead the organization to its next level of service and impact. You will be "right in the middle of things," leading and working in the heart of the movement. The position is for someone looking to go all-in to help end poverty.


  • Manage the daily and long-term schedule of the President & CEO
  • Assist with special projects and events
  • Attend meetings and presentations with the President & CEO
  • Work closely with the President & CEO on all daily correspondence
  • Serve as the point of contact for meetings and visitors
  • Produce necessary written documents and materials


    • Experience in a professional setting
    • A passion for and commitment to the movement to end poverty
    • Excellent organizational, writing, and communication skills
    • Strong attention to detail
    • Ability to adapt to a fast-paced work environment
    • Enthusiasm for providing support on many levels to all that the President & CEO is doing each day
    • Ability to work on evening and weekend hours as needed (e.g., to attend events or meet deadlines)
