Membership Assistant (Part-Time)
The Marijuana Policy Project, the organization that ended marijuana prohibition in Colorado and Alaska, is hiring a membership assistant.
This is a part-time (25-30 hours a week), paid internship. It pays $11.50 per hour, and applicants should be able to commit to working for at least four months (although longer is welcomed). Most MPP interns are recent grads, although that’s not required.
You’ll be responsible for a significant portion of MPP’s donor research, using the internet to track down contact and background information on high-value prospects for our fundraising team.
You will also be responsible for researching and summarizing news articles on some of MPP’s biggest supporters and donors and providing that information to the appropriate MPP staffers.
You will be tasked with assisting in MPP’s various mailings. This will involve the packaging of mailing materials and transport to the post office.
Other administrative tasks as assigned by the membership coordinators, such as phone calls to lapsed monthly donors, assisting with various projects, occasional front desk duties, and some manual labor (such as helping bring in packages).
What we’re looking for:
You should have a meticulous attention to detail and be highly accurate. You should also have strong internet research skills, the ability to work independently, and a professional demeanor. And we’ll be blunt: Doing one task – donor research or mailings – all day, every day isn’t for everyone, so we’re looking for someone who understands the single-task nature of the job and reasonably believes that they won’t lose their mind after a month of doing the same thing every day. We’d like you to keep your mind.
Candidates should expect a fast-paced, professional environment where excellence is valued.
To apply, please go to https://www.mpp.org/job/membership-assistant-part-time/ to follow MPP’s application instructions. Phone interviews will take place on a rolling basis beginning immediately, and finalists will be interviewed in person.
