Big Picture

CEF of New Jersey

Assistant to the Director

Teamwork is the way CEF is organized. The ideal is a team of volunteers and a person that assists in the work.

The successful candidate will begin fund raising once the paperwork for their background check is approved. The funding can begin once they are invited to work. Work can only be paid when there are finances. 10% of all finances go to the Sate. About 8% of the finances go to FICA. CEF will be raising money to cover the cost of health insurance and seeking to find an appropriate place for the person to be housed.

The new Assistant must complete CYIA training ($280). TCE 1 and TCE 2 can be completed on-line during the first year of work as an intern/assistant to the Director. These classes have a cost which is to come out of funds that the Assistant raises.

Travel related to the job will be reimbursed @ $0.35 per mile (100 miles per month = $35) and is to come out of funds that the Assistant raises.

Work hours per week will be determined in consultation with the Assistant. A minimum of 20 hours will be worked. If fundraising provides for 30 hours per week, below is the suggested schedule which has some flexibility and is negotiable.

30 Hours per week: Monday through Friday from 9 until 3:30 & 30 minute lunch

35 Hours per week: Monday through Friday from 9 until 4:30 & 30 minute lunch

40 Hours per week: Monday through Friday from 9 until 5:00 & 30 minute lunch

If there is a need to work on a Saturday, a different day of the week can be taken as a free day or adjustments made to ensure the correct amount of time is worked that week. Flexibility is designed into this work schedule. The Assistant should request time adjustments two weeks in advance if possible. Emergencies are allowed. Two weeks of vacation are allowed as well as normal holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and Easter, 4th of July, Memorial Day, etc.
