Field Manager

Working America, community affiliate of the AFL-CIO, is the fastest-growing organization for working people in the country. With more than three million members, Working America recruits and mobilizes people who do not have a union on the job in support of working families' issues.

Have experience leading a team? A demonstrated passion for working-class issues? A positive, progressive attitude? Join Working America as a Field Manager and we'll teach you to train, develop, evaluate and supervise teams of canvass organizing staff.

Supervise and train canvass staff. Lead teams of canvass organizers into neighborhoods every night, help them analyze their work, and offer training and support. This work includes managing and assigning turf; overseeing transportation logistics of crews to and from the field; maintaining canvass administrative and data recording systems; and recommending and developing new leaders.
