Movement Law Lab is looking for a seasoned professional to be our next Operations Manager as we are evolving into our own independent organization. We are currently fiscally sponsored, meaning that, in the short term, many operations functions are held by our fiscal sponsor. Our new Operations Manager, however, will have the opportunity to research, recommend, and implement all types of new systems that will allow MLL to become a freestanding nonprofit and will allow our all-remote team to thrive and function optimally.
WHO WE ARE
Movement Law Lab’s purpose is to organize lawyers, decolonize the law, and grow social-movement power— to win a just world. We cultivate and disseminate new ways of understanding and using the law, in the US and transnationally, to defend human dignity, multi-racial democracy, and ecological harmony. We are rooted in seven core values of adaptability, interdependence, creativity, dignity, radical politics, integrity, and sustainability.
WHO YOU ARE
You will thrive in this role if you are this kind of person:
- You find joy in making order out of chaos;
- You’re a problem-solver with a “figure it out till it’s finished” mentality;
- You’re technologically curious and savvy, and are committed to continually growing;
- You are extremely detailed-oriented and can see the big picture;
- You’re a team player who loves building a thriving, healthy social-justice organization;
- You fully align with MLL’s purpose and shared values.
WHAT YOU WILL DO
Virtual Office Administration & Operations: Investigate current operations infrastructure; make adjustments and develop standard operating procedures that will improve workflow and reduce administrative burdens on staff; manage and troubleshoot MLL’s various online software tools.
Support Staff Administration, Financial Administration, and Organizational Planning: co-manage recruiting, hiring, onboarding, and offboarding processes with Director of Growth; handle financial information exchanges with our fiscal sponsor; create or complete reports, notes, and other documentation from planning meetings; synchronize meeting notes and discussions with a shared task management system.
Research, propose, design, and implement all new organizational operations-management systems: Develop a plan for managing the evolution process from being fiscally sponsored to becoming an independent 501(c)(3) organization; research and propose solutions for managing all aspects of our finances, grant management processes, communications, payroll & benefits, contracts, donations, and more.
Event Planning & Production: manage MLL’s Program Assistant in dividing up their time up across programs, as they support various online and in-person programming. Occasionally directly support the execution of MLL online or in-person programming. Plan and organize all logistical aspects of MLL staff retreats.
