Charity Science Health was launched with the ambition of being the first direct poverty charity started by EAs to become GiveWell-recommended. We are now in the second year of this project and we have received two GiveWell incubation grants (1,2) and are expanding our team to increase our capacity. If you’d like to be part of an organization that is passionate and systematic about doing the most good possible, you should consider applying.
About the job:
Like fundraising, operations work is utterly crucial to an organization being able to help others, but because it hasn’t had as much publicity in the EA 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 source for collecting 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, and the non-EA would in all likelihood be lower skill. 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.
A great deal of basic operations, accounting and admin work is required to keep CSH running smoothly. The main responsibilities of this role would be to manage the financial and legal aspects of keeping Charity Science running. Major tasks include:
