Organización Latino Americana of Eastern Long Island (OLA) is seeking a diverse pool of candidates for two open jobs, an executive support position and an advocacy response position.

According to OLA, "frequently cited statistics show that women and people from underrepresented groups apply to jobs only if they think they meet 100 percent of the criteria. OLA encourages you to apply if you meet many but not all the criteria and feel you may be a good fit for the role."

The executive support position is a hybrid role, with 70 percent remote work and 30 percent in-person at OLA's East Hampton Village office, and offers a salary between $50,000 and $55,000 depending on experience. A high school diploma and good organizational and communication skills are required qualifications, while knowledge of both English and Spanish is preferred qualification. Responsibilities include supporting "the communication, scheduling, and planning needs of the executive director." 

The advocacy response position is an in-person job in East Hampton. "You will play a crucial role in ensuring the smooth operation of our East Hampton Village office and providing support to our advocacy team," OLA says in the description. "No prior experience is necessary, as we are willing to train the right person." The salary range is $45,000 to $50,000. Qualifications include a high school diploma or the equivalent, and the ability to speak and write fluently in Spanish and English. 

Full details can be found on OLA's Facebook page. Interested applicants can send a résumé to Minerva Perez, OLA's executive director, at [email protected].
