About Charity Science Health:
Charity Science Health was launched with the ambition of being the first direct-poverty charity started by EAs to become GiveWell-recommended. A year into the project we have received two GiveWell incubation grants and have helped over 200,000 new parents and their infants. The plan for the next two years is to run a high-quality RCT and, depending on the results, apply for GiveWell top charity status.
About the Role
Like fundraising, operations work is crucial to an organization being able to help others, but because it hasn’t had as much publicity in the Effective Altruism community, it is more neglected. 80,000 hours recommends working in operations for an EA organization as a way to have high direct-impact. EA operations roles can provide a lot of career capital while having a high counterfactual impact. For example, the salary to hire a non-EA would mean we would be unable to hire an additional two India-based staff. This means that if you have the right skills for the job, you would have the impact of two additional employees, on top of any benefit you bring over the next strongest candidate.
This role would be an ideal entry-level position for those interested in starting their careers in the EA community. This job could evolve into a more senior or different role over time for the right candidate.
A great deal of basic operations, accounting and admin work is required to keep Charity Science running smoothly. Major tasks include:
Given the relatively small size of our nonprofit, the ideal candidate would also have skills in more general areas such as communications and research, so that they could assist with these tasks.
