We are seeking a proactive, energetic, and articulate Special Projects Manager to provide City Year’s Vice President of National Program Design and the Design Team with exceptional project management and administrative support. This position requires a well-organized and versatile individual who possesses the ability to work collaboratively with internal and external teams, and autonomously on self-directed and assigned projects. While the position is a support function and the majority of responsibilities are administrative in nature, this individual may at times lead on innovative, cross-departmental projects that often involve contact with external contacts and/or our sites or design team members across the country. The successful candidate will be skilled at managing multiple priorities and deadlines, with impeccable attention to detail, in a fast-paced, dynamic environment. This individual takes initiative, is proactive, and is highly organized and articulate. This is an ideal role for someone who is motivated by an interest in City Year’s mission of increasing the academic achievement, school attendance, and graduation rates of students in our nation’s urban neighborhoods.
