Families of Lone Soldiers (FLS) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advocating for IDF lone soldiers and their families. A lone soldier is a soldier who is serving in the Israel Defense Forces without immediate family in Israel. An estimated 3,500 lone soldiers from the United States are serving at any one time. Based in Los Angeles, FLS focuses on helping mainly families in North America but responds to inquiries throughout the world. We provide emotional, psychological, medical, and legal support both in Israel and at home through a dedicated board and collaborative association of volunteers, advocates, affiliates, and mission partners.
FLS connects Lone Soldier Families with vital advocacy, resources and a community of proactive support for their emotional and physical well-being and activates a network of services to ensure a healthy and positive experience serving Israel.
FLS seeks a multi-talented self-starting administrator who can skillfully manage and be responsible in a highly organized and time-efficient manner for a variety of office-related duties that will help FLS with its critical work. Ideally, this team member can work independently and be responsible for a diverse set of tasks and will be proud to help support our mission. Our office administrator must understand and execute the role assigned, but he/she can be proactive in molding the job to his/her talents and skills and the needs of our young and growing small organization. The Office Administrator will work diligently to enhance our organization’s functioning, outreach and success.
The Office Administrator is the primary contact for families of lone soldiers, volunteers, mission partners, and the public. This position provides administrative assistance for a variety of activities and programs of the organization, funneling queries and needs to appropriate network members.
This is a great job with someone who has the requisite skills and the desire to do more, be more and grow into and beyond the stated position. While we seek a terrific administrator who is adept at detail and can manage day-to-day operations, this is also a job where you can help define the parameters; if you can successfully manage the administrative tasks but seek growth opportunity, this role is able to expand for the individual who might want more.
