Dates: Mid-July 2020 through Mid-December 2020, exact dates to be determined

Hours: Approx. 30 hours a week

The American Friends of Attingham (AFA) supports the work of The Attingham Trust, a British educational charitable trust, that organizes specialized residential courses to study British country houses, their collections and settings, and the history and contents of British royal palaces. The American Friends of Attingham is a 501(c)(3) educational organization that assists the Trust by recruiting candidates living in the United States, raising scholarship funds for qualifying applicants, and providing further educational and networking opportunities for American-based alumni of Attingham Trust courses.

The AFA seeks an Interim Administrator to provide coverage for our sole employee going on maternity leave. Working with the volunteer Board of Directors and Board Committees, this person will be responsible for the day-to-day management and operations of a small, but busy, non-profit. The position requires management in all aspects of general non-profit administration including: event and program management (probably online only via Zoom for this position due to COVID-19), communication and marketing, fundraising, finance and general administrative duties.

Some of the duties of this individual can be performed remotely, but access to our office in Midtown Manhattan (Lexington Ave.) will be necessary on a weekly/bi-weekly basis, or as needed. The position reports to the President of the organization and compensation will be based on experience.

The organization can provide a laptop for remote work once the Administrator goes on leave in early/mid-August, but this individual will need a working personal computer/laptop that can be used for training beginning in mid-July.

Application deadline is Sunday, June 28, 2020.
