SSA Seeks Student Programs Specialist
The Secular Student Alliance is seeking a Student Programs Specialist. This position focuses on developing and delivering services and resources to SSA’s individual student members, programs that normalize secular student identity (including Secular Safe Zone and Openly Secular), alumni support, and other programs that focus on secular students as individuals. Unlike most SSA campus organizing positions, this position does not involve working with affiliated campus groups, and instead focuses on support for individual students, including the role of Secular Safe Zone Coordinator.
This is a full-time position (40 hours/week) with some of those hours on nights and weekends. This position reports directly to the Director of Campus Organizing. While this position is based in our Columbus, Ohio offices, we may consider delayed relocation or other accommodations for exceptional candidates.
To apply for this position, please send the materials found on the bottom of this page to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11/9/2014. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
