Finance VISTA
Reporting to the Senior Director of Finance and Administration, the AmeriCorps VISTA position will build capacity of New Yorkers For Children by allowing the organization to expand its financial and program efforts to build capacity and meet pressing community needs. Specific tasks will include managing and modernizing cash aid request programs such as our Back-to-School Program and Emergency Grants youth payments, taking leadership on Accounts Payable processing, and building out capacity in areas such as automation of payment management. The VISTA role will include researching and making formal recommendations about new technologies to be used by the Finance department. As the NYFC currently works in a hybrid in-person/remote model, NYFC will ensure that the selected candidates have Internet Access, computers with access to the NYFC database, and receive orientation and training virtually. The VISTA will also be provided with monthly transportation/Metro Cards so they can get to and from the office and will be reimbursed for use of their cell phones (up to $75 per month). The office is located by Pennsylvania Station in New York City - a very central hub - so any candidates in the region will be able to access the office via public transportation. Priority may be given to local applicants so that they will not need to scramble to find housing.
