Description

Operations and Outreach Manager, Alliance for Tompotika Conservation

Open until filled, posted 29 May 2024

The Alliance for Tompotika Conservation ("AlTo") (www.tompotika.org) is a small international community-based conservation partnership dedicated to healing the broken relationship between humans and the rest of nature, starting in one very special place: the Tompotika peninsula of Sulawesi, Indonesia. AlTo runs field projects to protect threatened species and habitats; outreach projects to build long-term support for conservation; quality-of-life projects to promote the dignity and self-sufficiency of local communities; and research projects to strengthen scientific and traditional knowledge. AlTo has offices in the US and Sulawesi, with the US office taking the lead on organizational and financial matters, fundraising, and international communications.

AlTo’s Operations and Outreach Manager will be responsible for ensuring that AlTo’s US office and overall organizational functions are running smoothly. S/he will be very well organized, reliable, and attentive to detail, with excellent social skills and sensitivity to working cross-culturally and with people from diverse backgrounds. S/he will be skilled in managing systems and projects, and also a thoughtful and enthusiastic communicator, advocating for AlTo's work within and beyond the 14 countries where we currently have supporters. The Operations and Outreach Manager will work both independently and as part of a small team. A successful team member will have the opportunity to advance.

This position will be based at AlTo's US office on Vashon Island, Washington, outside of Seattle. Though much of the work can be done from home, in-person attendance at the AlTo office on Vashon Island will be required at least 2-3 days a week, sometimes more. Candidates based outside the greater Seattle-Tacoma area will not be considered.
