Job Description

The Affiliate Support Center tracks interactions with affiliates in a customer-relationship management database so that other staff members can provide service based on each affiliate’s unique needs. 

The Support Center Specialist acts as a key resource, providing extended knowledge, interpretation, guidance and application of organizational policies and best practices for Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the US and Canada, State Support Organizations, Campus Chapters, and ReStores.

* Provide medium- to long-term engagement coaching for small to medium affiliates in applying best practices for building capacity
* Respond and act as an intermediary to complaints from or about affiliates or internal departments following the established organizational protocol
* Represent the Affiliate Support Center at conferences, summits and learning events
* Provide “voice of the affiliate” as needed internally using support experiences
