As the organizational leader of the No Death Penalty Ohio campaign, OTSE requires an Executive Director who can work across political spectrums, is comfortable and effective when interacting with state legislators and other government leaders, and appreciates the power of grassroots voices to bring about change. This work is highly relational and includes building and leveraging OTSE’s existing network, which includes murder victims’ family members and other survivors of violent crime, law enforcement professionals, families of the incarcerated, and persons who have been exonerated from death row.

OTSE’s Executive Director will be responsible for the overall strategic management of the organization, including setting and implementing the organization’s strategic plan as developed with the Board of Directors, directing fundraising efforts, and fostering relationships with stakeholders, including donors, board members, and the community.

We are looking for someone with an organizer’s instincts, a leader’s ability to motivate, and a campaign coordinator’s ability to prioritize and direct.

The Executive Director reports directly to the Board of Directors through the Co-Chairs. All members of the staff report to the Executive Director. This is a fully remote position that can be located anywhere in Ohio. Hours are somewhat flexible, though most work will be done during regular business hours.
