Finance and Administration Officer

Camber Foundation is seeking a Finance & Administration Officer to oversee our finance, investment, and business administration activities.  This position represents the first of its kind at Camber Foundation, a new, emerging foundation in North Carolina. The Foundation’s start-up nature means that all team members must be energized by an opportunity to create and implement new policies and procedures that further the growth of the Foundation. This position is unique in that it spans a breadth of responsibilities; however, the size of the organization and the existing collection of external partners makes this position part-time, averaging 8-10 hours/week, yet still a highly-engaged member of the Camber team.
