The Partnership for Working Families
The Partnership for Working Families, a national network of leading local advocacy organizations, is leading a national effort to solve urgent economic and environmental problems. We’re building an economy that works for everyone, by creating good family-supporting jobs for low-income communities and communities of color in the construction and transit sectors. We’re working to curb climate change and increase recycling by reshaping the way major cities manage their trash. And we’re maximizing the public’s investment in development and infrastructure projects by aligning public spending with community values. As the pioneers of the community benefits movement, we combine insightful research, cutting edge policy and broad alliance building to transform industry practices and create a more sustainable and equitable future in our cities.
The Partnership is currently seeking an Information Security and IT Consultant to help our organization operate more efficiently and securely. In this role, you will provide desktop and network support to our national staff both in person and remotely while spearheading security initiatives as we redefine and update our practices.
