Progressive Pipeline –– Partnerships Coordinator

Full Time | Remote | $50-60k/Year | Priority Deadline: Friday, May 12 | Apply Here! 

Who We Are

Progressive Pipeline partners with nonprofits and consultants to recruit, support, and retain underrepresented staff.

Through our core fellowship program, we recruit underrepresented students and place them in paid internships at social change groups. Then, we offer them the training, mentorship, and connections they need to become tomorrow’s leaders. Since we launched in 2020, we’ve deployed more than 300 fellows: 76% are people of color and 73% are women or non-binary.

As we’ve grown, we’ve expanded our offerings to place a diverse pool of mid-career and senior staff in career-catalytic roles and help our partners build the internal people ops, management, and HR infrastructure they need to support diverse teams.

Our partners include groups like the SEIU, BerlinRosen, Run for Something, Accountable.US, SKDK, Catalist, Action Network, and Change Research.

What You’ll Do

  • Project management (~45% of your time). You’ll support our hiring partners as they move through our fellowship placement, staff matching, and consulting processes. You’ll help to develop an initial project plan, and then organize stakeholders and take action to ensure that we deliver results.
  • Partnership development (~25% of your time). Working closely with the Executive Director, you’ll introduce new partners to our program and help to build our network of supporters. You’ll offer support during introductory calls with partners, answer their questions, and stay engaged with them as they get to know our work.
  • Marketing and communications (~15% of your time). You’ll tell our story to potential organizational partners through engaging web content, how-to guides, newsletters, and social media posts.
  • Ad-hoc support (~15% of your time). You’ll jump in to support the team in other areas of work when needed, including helping to manage our internal operations and task management systems.

Who You Are

  • An organizer at heart. You’re eager to build relationships with stakeholders, understand their needs, and move them to action. You aren’t afraid to be persistent (you love a “just following up” email!) and you can develop creative approaches to overcome challenges.
  • An excellent written communicator. You balance clarity and flow in your professional communication, and you can adopt Progressive Pipeline’s tone without losing your own voice.
  • An adept project manager. Even when our work is intense, you can find order, managing complex processes, prioritizing projects, and organizing information so that we can drive change.
  • An advocate for social justice and racial equity. You understand the role that identities play in the workplace and systemic barriers to access. You’ve taken action to build inclusive and equitable work environments in the past. You’re open to learning, and center equity in everything you do.

While we’re open to a range of backgrounds and experiences, we imagine that a successful candidate will have 1-2 years of professional experience at a progressive nonprofit, consulting firm, or campaign.

Compensation and Mechanics

This is a full-time, exempt position with a salary range of $50,000-$60,000, depending on experience and background.

We offer excellent benefits, including 100% employer-paid Aetna health, dental, and vision insurance, access to One Medical, long-term disability insurance, unlimited paid time off, and a 3% SIMPLE IRA match. We are a fully remote organization, and candidates are welcome to work from anywhere within the United States.
