The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) is a high-caliber strategic policy organization that informs and shapes public policies to reduce poverty, promote equity, and build opportunity. CBPP is seeking a State Advancement Assistant.
States and localities collect more than one-third of all taxes in the U.S. and spend half of all domestic public-sector dollars. While core state investments that produce thriving communities are currently threatened by state tax cuts, budget shortfalls, and federal policy decisions, this is also a moment in which states can step forward as beacons of sensible, forward-looking policy.
In this high-stakes environment, the State Priorities Partnership (SPP) — the network of independent state policy organizations founded and coordinated by CBPP — is advancing racial, social, and economic equity to build broad prosperity and thriving state economies.
Roles and Responsibilities:
The ideal candidate will be a detail-oriented problem solver with exceptional organizational and people skills and an interest in gaining skills in organizational development, grantmaking, and project management to drive policy change. He or she will:
- Help implement and maintain systems for learning about, tracking, and sharing network success with external stakeholders;
- Support the development of clear and compelling written materials that convey the State Priorities Partnership’s work, mission, and impact;
- Work with SPP staff to help design, update, and maintain the database of SPP foundation contacts;
- Support the programmatic planning of network events, convenings, and meetings;
- Provide other support to the members of the State Advancement Team as needed.
Some travel required.
- A bachelor’s degree;
- 1-3 years of relevant work experience, ideally in nonprofit evaluation, fundraising, journalism or related field;
- Excellent verbal and written communications skills;
- Strong organizational skills and attention to detail and general passion for building systems to track complex information;
- Detailed knowledge of and demonstrated proficiency in the use of Microsoft Office productivity applications, including Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint;
- Facility with Salesforce or other CRM databases;
- Facility with graphic design and page layout;
- An understanding of the role that racial inequity plays in our society, and experience with communities that are underrepresented in state policy debates; and
- Passion for reducing poverty and racial inequities, building opportunity, and for state-based policy change.
