This is an excellent and meaningful opportunity to take part in our community effort to improve the Olentangy Watershed by enhancing our mission.

We are currently seeking a qualified individual to perform minor daily office duties and to hold and organize volunteer events. An ideal candidate will be able to work closely with many stakeholder groups, including government agencies, other non-profits, landowners, and community members. Candidates need to independently organize (with minor supervision) and multi-task on several different projects and activities at the same time while providing timely follow-up to project partners and stakeholders. Efficient and effective time management is a must.

  • ability to carry items for service events that weigh up to 40 pounds up a flight of stairs
  • prepare presentations for public involvement meetings and hold public meetings
  • maintain records of important documents tracking and recording accurately the hours worked per project.

This is a part-time 18 month contract position to assist FLOW with a variable outdoor service event schedule, administrative and grant duties. Hours can be both variable and flexible and will involve workloads up to 38 hours during some weeks. Winter weekly hours may be lower.
