Opportunity to intern with 80,000 Hours

If you’re here, you probably have some idea of what 80,000 Hours is about. We’re trying to become the world’s best source of advice on how to make as big a positive impact as possible. That’s a big project, and we’re growing fast. To support this growth we now need someone to help manage our finances and fundraising, so if you’d like to join the team this is your chance!

The position we’re recruiting for is Finance and Fundraising Manager. In this role, you would work closely with the director of our Operations division, which supports the different organisations within the Centre for Effective Altruism, including 80,000 Hours and Giving What We Can. If you work for us you’ll be part of a focused team of intelligent, enthusiastic, driven colleagues. Everyone involved in CEA is passionate about their work, making the office an inspiring place to be.

The current Finance and Fundraising intern has helped to write budgets, set up a new charity in the US, and create financial procedures and book-keeping systems almost from scratch. In doing so, he’s made a major difference to the success of 80,000 Hours and the Centre for Effective Altruism family that it belongs to. If you follow him, you would do so too.
We’re looking for someone who can start soon, and ideally commit to at least six months, though we’re flexible about time commitment. To find out more about this opportunity, please see our recruitment page. If you’re interested in the position, we invite you to fill in the short application form – the deadline for this is 9am (UK time) on Thursday the 16th of May, though it’d be helpful if you can apply earlier than this. And if you know anyone else who you think might be keen on this role, do share this blog post with them.
