Monument Impact (MI) is seeking an experienced and exceptional bilingual leader (English/Spanish) with a strong financial background to fill the position of Deputy Director of a dynamic social justice organization serving the immigrant and refugee community in Concord, CA and East Contra Costa County. 


About Monument Impact

Since 2001, Monument Impact has worked with the Monument community of Concord to address immigrants’ barriers to economic advancement.  Our mission is to ensure that immigrants, refugees and low-income residents in Concord and surrounding communities have the voice, tools and relationships for an equitable share of the social and economic wealth in our region. To meet our mission, we integrate our direct services in workforce development, healthy community, and immigration services with community organizing, leadership development and advocacy. 


Position Summary

Building on two decades of achievement, the Deputy Director will have both internal and external responsibilities, ranging from financial management, administration, and human resources to donor relations. The Deputy Director will partner closely with the Executive and Program Directors and management team to chart MI’s future growth and strategic response to increased demand for the organization’s services and advocacy, including the Monument Relief & Recovery Fund (the largest Undocufund in Contra Costa), established in 2020 to serve undocumented immigrants hardest hit by the pandemic. 


The responsibilities of the role are varied, challenging, and require the ability to operate effectively within in a fast-paced, and multicultural environment. The ideal candidate is a seasoned and innovative manager who pays close attention to detail while also focusing on the big picture. The successful candidate will have unique access and insight into the challenges and opportunities that immigrants face, especially during the pandemic.
