You're remarkably people oriented
You have an innate social intelligence. You can relate to all types of people -- from bankers, fashionistas and techies, to janitorial staff and entertainment executives -- and you're a skilled conversationalist. You enjoy meeting new people; developing and maintaining relationships is a natural tendency. You are likable, engaging, interesting and interested. If you walk into a room of 50 people, each would be excited to invite you to dinner at their home. 

You have team ethos
You thrive in a creative, inventive, fast-paced start-up environment, with people who are passionate about their work and mission. You're excited to work cross-functionally with other departments. 

You're a deal maker
You're comfortable asking for money and are not afraid to say no. You possess a keen ability to sell ideas and close deals. 

You stay on top of it all
You operate with poise, dignity, and reliability in both your personal and professional worlds. 

You love public speaking
You have strong communications skills and can demand the attention of the room when you speak. You bring passion into what you talk about and are able to be bold yet professional, igniting others to get excited about our story.

You're organized and detail oriented
You’re known for color coordinating your clothes and alphabetizing your files in a cabinet. You’re able to manage calendars, payment schedules, and communications in an orderly fashion.

You believe in the future of charity: water
You take your responsibilities in curating one of our most important programs seriously; the success of this role is critical to charity: water's growth. 

You're a strategic thinker
You have the strategic prowess and social intelligence required to help build scalable models that leverage charity: water's brand, assets, relationships and opportunities to meet aggressive growth goals.
