Administrative Assistant, Executive Office of The Public Interest Network
Attention Job Seekers: In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we want to assure you that The Public Interest Network is actively hiring for this position, and we welcome your applications.
The Executive Office of The Public Interest Network seeks an Administrative Assistant. We are looking for a smart, committed, and detail-oriented candidate to join our team to assist the President and Vice Presidents in managing the daily operations of the organization and in long-term planning.
The Public Interest Network is home to more than 15 organizations—including PIRG, Environment America, Green Corps, and the National Environmental Law Center—that share a vision of a better world, a set of core values, and a strategic approach to change.
Our mission is to tackle some of the big questions facing our country. How do we make sure the next generation has clean air, clean water and a livable climate? How do we transform our energy and transportation systems to meet the needs of today, not the last century? How do we grow and raise our food in ways that leave both people and our environment healthier?
Our country needs smart solutions to these and other problems, and our researchers and advocates have come up with dozens of them. But having good ideas isn’t enough. We have to find ways to cut through all the noise in today’s politics and win over decision makers, opinion leaders and the public.
We’re transpartisan. We value dialogue over polarization. We invest in people and strategies that deliver results, including advocacy, lobbying, campaigning, litigation, policy research and grassroots organizing.
Over the past 45 years, our coordinated approach has won hundreds of victories. Because of the laws and other policies we’ve won, people are buying healthier and safer products, getting more of our energy from the sun and the wind, and drinking cleaner water and breathing cleaner air.
In order to achieve these results, the groups in The Public Interest Network need a strong backup staff to provide the resources, guidance, and infrastructure it takes to make progress on these issues.
