Personal & Team Assistants(1278 Views)
About Checchi and Company Consulting, Inc.
-The objective of the Assistance for the Development of Afghan Legal Access and Transparency (ADALAT) Project is to improve citizen access to justice services based on Afghan law. ADALAT aims to increase the effectiveness and reach of the formal justice sector, strengthen linkages between the formal and traditional justice sectors, and increase citizen demand for quality legal services.
We seek three (3) Assistants. These are entry-level positions. Men and women of all ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to apply. High school completion is preferred.
One Assistant will be the Personal Assistant of the Chief of Party (CoP). The Personal Assistant (PA) typically carries out administrative work for the CoP. The Personal Assistant will play the role of freeing the CoP’s time from organizing and administrative tasks so that he/she can maximize his/her time on strategic tasks.
The remaining two Assistants will be Team Assistants. The Team Assistants will rotate through the various ADALAT Teams to assist whichever Team needs help. This help is typically in the form of preparation for an event (training, conference, etc) that requires hundreds of phone calls, document production (formatting of documents, printing documents, copying computer files onto flash drives, etc), and helping with communications between ADALAT Team members and their clients.
The position of Assistant is an excellent opportunity for a young man or woman to begin their working career with an international organization that has high professional standards. We are looking for people that want more than just a job and a paycheck: we are looking for ambitious people that are eager to learn and work with others to accomplish ADALAT goals: a more just, more peaceful Afghanistan.
All three Assistants will report directly to the CoP.
