Church Administrator—First Church Amherst (First Congregational in Amherst), UCC, Amherst, MA
An interesting, engaging, challenging, and fun part-time job with flexible hours and benefits (vacation, health insurance premium support, holidays), working with a dynamite staff, active members and a variety of renters of a congregation that is actively engaged in making the world a better place. A great job for someone equally at home with supervision, volunteers, computers, words, numbers, and the ineffable.
Who You Are:
Someone who knows their way around churches, is great with people, can juggle varying responsibilities and multiple deadlines, maintain confidentiality, work closely with the pastor, and answer to any number of people in person, by email, and phone. Must be both a self-starter and good at taking direction; comfortable with software and office equipment; have an eye and ear for editing; take pride in producing typo-free materials; and be relatively unflappable. Understanding of, and ease with, social media and graphics a plus. LGBTQIA and minorities especially encouraged to apply.
