Our Hiring Process
Zero Abuse Project seeks team members who are deeply committed to ending child sexual abuse. We have developed a thoughtful and intentional hiring process that is designed to allow us to get to know each other and decide if there is a mutual fit.
Please let us know if you need any accommodations during the hiring process and we can confidentially work with you to make arrangements.
Multiple team members review application materials to see if there is a match between your skills, interests, and goals and what is needed in the role. Materials are reviewed by a group of people to reduce the potential for hiring bias. If there is a match you will be invited into our hiring process.
Candidates with impressive application materials will be invited to participate in video interviews, often a shorter initial conversation and later a longer panel interview. During these conversations we will learn more about your past experience and expertise and help you deepen your understanding of the position and organization. A small group of candidates will be invited to one or more final interviews with senior leaders in the organization. Interviews are standardized and structured to help minimize bias.
We often ask candidates to complete short simulation exercises designed to help us assess your skills and for you to get a sense of what type of work will be required for the role. Exercises will vary based on the position and may include delivering a 15-minute training, creating a social media plan, or drafting an email solicitation.
Near the end of our hiring process we will speak to 3-4 of your professional references to get a better sense of your work experience. We will not contact your current employer without your permission.
