Descriptif du poste

Epic is seeking a highly motivated individual to join our Programs team working on the selection, monitoring and research of nonprofits around the world.

  • Facilitate and liaise with other foundation teams, notably the Communications and Marketing team to keep portfolio organization data and information up to date on the website, application, and relevant documents; and the Development team to support its donor relations.
