The SEED Foundation is searching for a talented administrative assistant who is mission-driven, resourceful, creative and inventive. This person will be able to manage multiple projects, be open and collaborative, have a strong attention to detail and be an excellent communicator. Focused and organized candidates will have the opportunity to be a part of an innovative organization with team members who are intent on improving educational outcomes for underrepresented students.
The administrative assistant is an entry-level position designed to primarily provide administrative support to the Chief College Success Officer (CCSO) and the Executive Department. This person will manage vital logistical and administrative functions.
The SEED Foundation seeks an entry-level College Success Advisor (CSA) to serve on the front line of our critical college success support. S/he will be a vital resource for students as they transition from SEED through college. Advisors are responsible for building deep relationships with graduates; this is core to CTS’s—and SEED’s—success. Advisors act as our graduates’ advocates, mentors, experts, and cheerleaders as they assist students with the academic, financial aid, and personal challenges associated with college enrollment and success. Although this is an entry-level position, an advisor is expected to have experience working with underrepresented students and an understanding of the college financial aid process and the organizational structure of higher education institutions. This position reports to the College Success Manager.
As our Human Resources Generalist, you will promote and build upon a culture that fosters our first priority: our people. You will manage key aspects of HR – recruiting, onboarding, retention, maintaining employee files, administering benefits, compliance, employee relations, updating employee handbooks, managing our performance management process, and having a hand in ensuring the proper use and management of the newly implemented Human Resources Information System (HRIS). You will participate in our HR working groups as we think through the HRIS modules and work to develop and streamline best practices for the system. As you get to know SEED and the SEED culture, we will look to you to be an HR resource for the Foundation and a strong partner to your colleagues across the SEED network.
