JOIN OUR TEAM
The San Juan Preservation Trust has recently launched a search for a dynamic person to join our team. The Assistant Director – a newly-created position– will support our Executive Director by managing day-to-day administrative operations of the organization.
“Our talented, hardworking staff is small, yet it accomplishes an impressive amount of land conservation each year,”remarks Keith Gerrard, board president of the Preservation Trust. “But along with the growth of our network of protected land, the demands on our staff have also grown. With the new Assistant Director in place to oversee the organization’s operations, Executive Director Tim Seifert will be able to devote more attention to strategies that will prepare the Preservation Trust for the coming decades.”
The Assistant Director will oversee the organization’s administrative activities including budgeting, planning, engagement of our board and staff, committee coordination, and overall organizational effectiveness. Applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree and at least five years of postgraduate experience in the non-profit or for-profit sectors. A Master’s degree in business administration, non-profit management or a related field is preferred.
“This is an exceptional opportunity for the right person – an energetic, highly-motivated individual,” says Seifert. “We hope that our members and colleagues will help us spread the word about this new position.”
