The Office Manager will provide support to the AVSI-USA team of 6 people managing the day-to-day needs of the rented office, book-keeping as well as selected administrative tasks. He/she will report to the Managing Director. The role of Office Manager is multi-functional, with a significant amount of time to be spent on bookkeeping and accounting. A successful Office Manager will enjoy being part of a small and dynamic team which works with dedication and passion to do as much good as possible with limited resources. The Office Manager will also thrive in an environment which changes often as new projects are approved and special opportunities arise for AVSI-USA to respond to. Given that the current portfolio of AVSI-USA includes projects in over 10 countries, the Office Manager will also benefit from the challenge of working in an international environment and connecting with colleagues and peers from around the world.
