Job Description

**Voter Registration Field Directors**

**About The Outreach Team**
The Outreach Team is a premier national field firm. We partner with organizations working to solve some of the biggest problems facing our society -- from protecting human rights to fighting climate change -- and help them build the resources they need to make an impact. We are a people-powered enterprise; our campaigns are effective because we hire diverse teams of talented people, invest in our staff, and treat them well.
We are hiring Directors to manage our offices in Long Island, Westchester, and Syracuse. Directors will recruit, train, and manage a team of local circulators to collect voter registrations in highly trafficked areas. Field Directors will work within the director team to build an office to scale from the ground up. The Field Director is expected to train circulators in the field while collecting registrations themselves to lead by example; they must also communicate long and short term goals to staff and manage campaign reporting. The Field Director manages circulators and Team Leads and reports to the Lead Director.

Registering voters is an essential first step to ensuring elected officials reflect the diversity and wishes of the communities they serve. Too often community members are invested in elections but do not have access to register to vote or they’re unsure of the process to register. We’ll engage with unregistered voters in busy areas in their communities and take them through the process to register to vote. Through our work, we will provide access for thousands of voters in New York to register to vote and cast their vote later this election cycle.

We are hiring immediately. This position can run through July 24, 2024, with opportunities to extend.
