One example of how you might have built this is 4+ years in Management Consulting and an MBA, though there are many ways you might develop these skills in many other ways!

The ability to lead on and enjoy both strategic and tactical work is key; Analytical capability: You?re confident creating, scrutinizing and improving everything from revenue models to pivot tables. You?ve repeatedly done the work to make sure complex business reporting data is accurate, but you?re also able to cut out the noise by identifying the 2 or 3 most salient data points to inform decision making. Additional capabilities we?ll consider (bonus capabilities, demonstrating strong skills/experience in at least 1-2 of these will help the best candidates stand out): Emotional intelligence and ability to establish strong and trusting relationships with colleagues; Designing or leading organizational change management around new goals, priorities, team changes or projects; High initiative, self starting capabilities; the demonstrated ability to identify and seize opportunities for impact in messy, uncertain contexts without direction or oversight; Mission and values alignment, demonstrated through a history of actively contributing to the causes or communities that you care about in meaningful ways; Facilitation skills; you design thoughtful meeting processes/agendas and are skilled at chairing or facilitating meetings or sessions that make progress on high stakes discussions with senior stakeholders. As a Chief of Staff, you will be responsible for: Executive Support Plan and facilitate executive team meetings and planning sessions;-- Provide decision support with research, analysis, and synthesis; Manage and execute special projects as designated by the CEO;-- Offer general support: correspondence, agendas, minute taking, etc (note: core administrative support to the CEO is provided by a separate admin role). Board & Investor Coordination:-- Project manage preparation and creation of materials for Board meetings;-- Update the Board on progress against goals and key impact moments; Prepare regular investor reports and respond to incoming requests.-- Executive Communications: Be a bridge for communication between the CEO and internal departments, with strong collaborative relationships across the organization; Prepare presentations and updates for internal audiences, such as leadership reports, summaries of board meetings, or presentations for company-wide meetings; Work with the communications team to manage speaking requests for the CEO.-- Interested?

Our team is high impact, low ego, and has a truly unique and supportive culture.-- Applications are due by October 25th, but are encouraged early as they will be assessed on a rolling basis. We especially encourage applicants of different backgrounds, cultures, genders, experiences, abilities and perspectives to apply. We?re actively working to increase the diversity of experience and perspectives on our team, and we want to hear from you. Remember, no one comes with the entire complement of skills, and no one is the perfect candidate, so don?t let a lack of experience/ skill in one specific area deter you from applying.-- Change.org is committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age, physical disability, or length of time spent unemployed. We?re working for a world where no one is powerless, and where creating change is a part of everyday life. We?re just getting started and hope you?ll join us.
