Put yourself at the intersection of LGBTQ+ rights, Jewish identity, and the broader movement for social justice in American society. Keshet seeks a positive self-starter with outstanding organizational and interpersonal skills to join a phenomenal team.
The Executive Assistant serves as the administrative point person for the President & CEO and manages an array of projects at any given time, including work with the Board of Directors. The Executive Assistant also provides administrative support to the other members of the Executive Team, as possible. It is essential for this staff person to possess a high level of integrity, discretion, and professionalism in handling confidential information and managing relationships with staff, board, funders, and organizational colleagues. This role requires exemplary attention to detail, an ability to anticipate future needs, flexibility, a positive outlook, and a healthy sense of humor.
The Executive Assistant reports directly to the President & CEO, works out of Keshet’s Newton office (minimum two days a week in-office/other days may be remote is the current policy), and collaborates with our growing staff across the country, currently operating out of our national office in Boston and five other offices, as well as numerous remote staff.
Keshet works for the full equality of all LGBTQ+ Jews and our families in Jewish life. We turn values at the heart of Judaism—equality, inclusion, and human dignity—into action in Jewish communities across North America. We equip Jewish organizations with the tools to build LGBTQ-affirming communities, create spaces for queer Jewish teens to feel seen and valued, and mobilize the Jewish community to fight for LGBTQ+ rights nationwide.
As an organization that teaches the importance of proactive LGBTQ+ inclusive messages and actions, Keshet recognizes the similar need to make our commitment to racial equity and justice clear and explicit. We work on an ongoing basis to embed a racial equity and justice lens into Keshet’s leadership and staff structure, political analysis, organizational policies, communications, and program content.
Keshet’s national office is in Boston with offices in the Bay Area, Chicago, New York, Texas, and Florida.
This is a full-time exempt position.
Salary range is $58,000-$74,000. Salary is based on related experience and expertise.
Keshet offers a competitive benefits package and a fast-paced, purpose-driven, and fun work environment.
Frequently cited statistics show that women, trans, and non-binary people as well as other structurally marginalized groups apply to jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. Keshet encourages you to break that statistic and to apply. No one ever meets 100% of the qualifications. We look forward to your application. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until we find the right candidate.
