The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is the nation's most effective environmental action group, combining the grassroots power of 1.4 million members and online activists with the courtroom clout and expertise of nearly 500 lawyers, scientists and other professionals to fight for the planet and its people in the halls of Congress, communities across the country, and nations around the globe. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, and many of the implementing regulations; our water enforcement cases played a major role shaping current water policy throughout the country. Today, our staff – a force for nature - work out of offices in New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bozeman, Montana and Beijing.
The Facilities & Administration Department is seeking a Project Coordinator to help ensure staff have what they need to achieve NRDC’s mission. The position will support implementation of NRDC’s Sustainable Operations program, working with the Sustainability Manager on aspects such as coordination of construction projects, sustainability reporting, communications and staff engagement, and with the Senior Project Manager on real estate planning, data collection and analysis, management of travel, workspace and meeting software, corporate card, and procurement.. We seek applicants with sound judgment and outstanding interpersonal skills.
Timely completion and attention to detail are expected in carrying out these tasks, as is the ability to make decisions and assess situations with the "big picture" in mind. The Project Coordinator must work well under pressure and respond to dynamic requests and issues in a calm and professional manner.
