We are seeking a non-profit leader adept in development, operations, people management, finance, board management, stakeholder relations, and building and program management. This is a job for someone who is highly detail-oriented, organized, tech savvy, proactive, energetic, communicative, and thorough. They will hire and supervise staff. The perfect person will feel comfortable in the weeds, dealing with the minutiae of daily operations in an environment while procedures and processes are still being created. She/he/they will be excited to learn from others while leading with their own experience. They will also be a leader, capable of seeing and driving toward the big picture, managing their time (and that of staff) well, and understanding how to delegate, seek help and support, and navigate both joyful and stressful situations.
We value backgrounds and experience in event management, databases, administration, logistics, building and/or co-working space management, development, and budgeting/finance.
As we are a small start-up organization, the preferred candidate will be hands-on, creative, flexible, and collaborative. They will identify and work through challenges and problems. They will work at both a strategic planning/thinking/creating level as well as an on-the-ground level, and they will have the freedom and flexibility to garner and apply resources. They will be grounded in carrying out EJC’s mission within the boundaries of financial reality, and they will contribute to all sides of the financial equation, from building/tracking budgets to mindful spending to increasing revenues. They will be versatile; daily tasks will vary and the pace variable depending upon the number of activities at any given time. They will have opportunities to participate in a wide range of spiritual, cultural, educational, social, and religious programming. They will never be bored!
Qualifications: Bachelor’s Degree Required and 10+ years of experience.
