The Ostara Group is a full-service fundraising and strategic consulting firm based in Seattle. Founded in 2009, our goal is to help nonprofit organizations navigate complex fundraising and sustainability issues, address your day-to-day challenges, and bring your work and impact to new heights. We are fundraisers, coaches and leaders with decades of leadership and experience on the front lines of organizations in every nonprofit sector. As a team, we value hard work, an entrepreneurial spirit, integrity, and authenticity. We also value our connection to our team and our community. We work, play, volunteer, and celebrate together.
The Ostara Group does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, creed, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, sex, gender, disability, veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or pregnancy. The Ostara Group is an equal opportunity/equal access/affirmative action employer fully committed to achieving a diverse workforce and complies with all Federal and Washington State laws, regulations, and executive orders regarding non-discrimination and affirmative action.
Ostara seeks a full time Operations Coordinator to support our fast-paced, collaborative work environment. The position requires excellent attention to detail, thorough and timely execution, and sophisticated planning skills. You will work with team members at all levels of the company, and interface externally with our clients.
Applicant must be practiced at complex time, task, and project management, and must demonstrate significant strength and comfort in reliability, regularity, and routine – often helping others to maintain routine responsibilities in time tracking, business development, and event planning. The Operations Coordinator will frequently handle sensitive and private information, so sophisticated communication skills are very important to display at all times.
We are only seeking applicants with a strong interest in advancing their role in the operations side of our business. While a background in nonprofit fundraising and/or consulting can be very helpful in this position, and we welcome applicants who want to bring fundraising experience into this operations role, we do not aim to transition operations staff into a consultant role.
Ostara’s work space is shared among the entire team, so you will sometimes be working in a bustling office with meetings and conversations happening all day, and sometimes be working alone for an entire day. It is important that the applicant has the ability to work effectively in both types of situations.
In your cover letter, please let us know if you have deeper experience in office management, bookkeeping, sales, human resources, or other core administrative and business functions.
To be considered for this position, applicants must be able to start between January 21 and February 4.
