Training Deputy
Democracy for America is hiring for a dynamic, organized, and politically savvy Training Deputy. The Training Deputy is responsible for a wide range of training programs designed to develop the skills of aspiring candidates and activists. The Training Deputy is a member of a highly motivated team of DFA leaders, responsible for the strategic direction of the organization overall.

The Training Deputy reports to the Political Director.


What You’ll Do:

Create, improve, and maintain DFA training materials and curricula.

Manage, evaluate, and solicit feedback from a pool of trainers who are experienced political professionals and experts in their fields. You’ll call on them to help our prospective candidates improve their campaign skills.

Execute training events all over the country. You’re responsible for the logistics and curriculum of each event

Work with DFA Regional Organizers and DFA activists around country to select the right attendees for the right trainings.

Work with DFA’s Political Director to provide trainings to priority campaigns around the country.

Work with DFA’s Executive Director to assist him scouting out and evaluating candidates.

The ED will attend trainings as part of DFA's vetting process.

Work with coalition partners, where appropriate, to reach a wider audience.


Who You Are:

• Passionately progressive, driven to change politics for the better.

• A fierce believer that skills build power. You have enough experience in training people yourself that you identify quality (and not-so-quality) training when you see it.

• An evaluator and improver, you see possibilities within problems and you implement necessary changes.

• Extremely motivated by goals, proven to produce excellent results and exceed expectations.

• Effective at planning, prioritizing, and time management. The Training Deputy will be organizing numerous events all over the country at any given time. Each requires attention to detail.

• Flexible, dynamic, and solution-oriented. The unexpected doesn't faze you; you make it work, or you move on to what will work.

• Experienced at managing vendors/consultants. Our trainers are veteran campaigners and consultants, but they work for you.

• Team Player, you enthusiastically pitch in to help out a colleague.

• Politically savvy with a good sense of humor.

• Excited to do whatever it takes – work long hours and weekends as needed.

• An experienced and enthusiastic traveler.
