Groundwork USA seeks an Impact and Engagement Associate to join a growing national team dedicated to helping expand the presence of Groundwork USA and increase its support for a network of community-based environmental justice organizations advancing equity, health, and resilience in neighborhoods across the nation.

A national enterprise with local roots, Groundwork USA is the only national network of local organizations dedicated to creating healthy, resilient neighborhood environments in low-resource communities through meaningful community engagement and collaboration. Local Groundwork affiliates, called “Trusts,” are community-based organizations that transform neglected land and waterways into community assets while building community capacity to effect change. Groundwork USA supports this dynamic network and advances climate justice and equitable development initiatives through national technical assistance and learning network programs for local practitioners. 

Interested candidates should review our website, http://groundworkusa.org.

The Impact and Engagement Associate is responsible for developing and maintaining a number of operations critical to the success of Groundwork USA’s fundraising and communications efforts including, but not limited to, data management, prospect research, performance tracking, impact reporting, and event management. Additionally, the Associate will work with the Director to improve the way we collaborate and share knowledge and best practices across the network of Groundwork Trusts. The Associate will report to the Director of Development and Communications and cross-collaborate with teams across the Groundwork network.

Key responsibilities include:

·      Develop and implement best practices in development operations to support a growing national team.

·      Track, monitor, and report on key metrics relevant to the development and communications team.

·      Help nurture a collaborative, high-performance culture in a geographically dispersed staff.

·      Contribute to Groundwork USA’s continued progress as an inclusive, culturally competent organization.

·      Other projects and tasks as assigned.

The preferred location for this position is the greater New York City or greater Boston metropolitan area. Other locations in communities with local Groundwork Trusts (see https://groundworkusa.org/groundwork-network/) will be considered. This is a full-time position, but Groundwork USA is committed to flexibility in arranging work schedules to balance work and family responsibilities. When conditions permit, some travel may be required.
