Finance & Operations Manager
Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls (WMRC), a music and mentoring non-profit that believes in the transformative power of music education combined with social justice discourse, is looking for an experienced, hands-on Finance & Operations Manager who is personally committed to empowering historically marginalized groups. This is a unique opportunity to help shape all aspects of a tight-knit, growing organization’s People Operations/HR and Financial Management. This part-time, permanent role based in NYC requires on average 3-4 days per week, beginning June 2020, with most hours falling Monday-Friday, 9-5pm. All work will be completed remotely until government restrictions have been lifted, some work can continue remotely thereafter. Salary is commensurate with experience and includes some benefits.
Our mission is to empower girls, women, and gender non-binary youth and adults through music education, volunteerism, and activities that foster self-respect, leadership skills, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. We believe that positioning people who have historically been silenced because of their gender and racial identity to experience the burst of confidence and self-efficacy that comes from learning to play an instrument, writing original music, performing, and engaging in social justice conversations with peers and mentors across the socio-economic spectrum, builds the next generation of musical activists who will define leadership, creative innovation, and civic engagement for generations to come.
