Organizational Background:

Northwest Earth Institute is a grassroots organization of volunteers and community organizers around the country who have brought together more than 115,000 people to dialogue and take action on behalf of the Earth.  NWEI offers nine discussion courses on a variety of sustainability topics.  Please visit our website for more information on our work to promote social and environmental change.

The Shipper will have the primary areas of responsibility:

Processing of book orders, which includes stocking and packaging books as well as arranging for the books to get from NWEI to USPS.  Some light lifting will be necessary.  The book boxes weigh about 15-20lbs per box, but we do have a hand-truck for wheeling books within the office.  The shipper will also need to update and enter orders into our database.  We are looking for someone who is organized, and who can adapt to new situations as protocol may change.  This is relatively easy, but very important work, and we are hoping to find someone who can fill this crucial part of our team.  This is a great job for students wanting a steady job with relatively few hours a week.


Dependable.  Database entry experience; Salesforce preferred.  High attention to detail and organization. The position is based in Portland, OR.


Minimum of one year commitment requested
