In recent years, No More Deaths has grown from an all-volunteer organization to incorporate paid positions for critical tasks that are difficult to fill with volunteer labor. Due to the non-hierarchical structure of No More Deaths, this position is not solely responsible for all HR issues but instead is responsible for coordinating volunteers and staff to make sure HR and personnel issues are handled.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Schedule and organize quarterly personnel meetings to discuss any organization and personnel-related updates.
