advocate the use of social sciences in communities, and take on and deliver
projects to completion.

over 200 applications. We’re hoping to narrow that down a little this time.

Please no Klout-obsessed social media
junkies. If your idea of this role is participating
in the conversation all day long on Twitter, don’t apply.
If your vision is to be making dozens of
calls every day, approaching groups/organizations, building mutually beneficial
connections to people that matter, producing and packaging materials, achieving
real results, and working with an intensity that comes from a true belief in
the power of communities to change lives – we want you. This is a role for a
do’er more than a thinker.
- You get full training in
communities and community development – along with our own certification.
- You get freedom to develop your
own projects and deliver on them.
- You get to work from home and
set your own hours. If you want to hit the gym in the afternoon, go ahead.
- Your work matters. You get to
see organizations connecting thousands of otherwise disconnected people into
strong, beneficial, groups.
To apply, give me a call and persuade me
that you’re perfect for the role.
There is no deadline, we’ll stop looking
when we find someone we like.
