Work Environment

Based in Mahwah, New Jersey, this is a full-time position beginning immediately. It offers a full-time, competitive salary with health and retirement benefits and opportunities for learning.

While work performed at the Trail Conference’s headquarters is preferred, remote and hybrid work arrangements may be used to allow staff members to fulfill some or all their duties from an off-site location.

  • Attracting and retaining staff members by providing a work environment that is supportive, productive, and flexible.
  • Sustaining a highly collaborative culture.
  • Fostering an environment for continued productivity, improvement, and excellence.
  • Empowering decisions that prioritize both business needs and staff member preferences.
  • Reducing our environmental impact and aligning with the organization’s sustainability goals.

For these reasons, we encourage the use of remote and hybrid work arrangements and flexible scheduling when appropriate and when in alignment with the needs of the teams. Approval for such arrangements is granted at the discretion of the Trail Conference management and is subject to ongoing and periodic review. The determination of staff member eligibility for remote and hybrid work will be made in accordance with organization’s Hybrid Work Policy and the needs of the organization.

The Trail Conference believes that the joys of nature belong to everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, age, disability, national origin, or religion.
