Do you want to help workers build wealth through ownership and gain a sense of hope and control over their future? Do you want to help farmers, fishermen and other food producers build a sustainable, resilient, locally controlled food system? Do you want to help preserve and grow jobs, businesses and farms throughout Maine and New England? The Cooperative Development Institute is looking for an exceptionally well organized, task oriented and data driven person with strong research and writing skills to assist in managing multiple projects across two of our main programs – Business Ownership Solutions and Cooperative Food Systems. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume and three references to firstname.lastname@example.org with Assistant Project Manager in the subject line.
The successful candidate will work as an Assistant Project Manager in the Business Ownership Solutions and Cooperative Food Systems programs and report to the Program Directors. While both programs work throughout the Northeast, the majority of their focus is currently in Maine and this position will be based in Maine. This new position will help expand the capacity of our programs, facilitate our partnerships and collaborations, and meet the needs of our clients through research, writing and data analysis, and by working with program directors and staff to effectively execute multiple projects in a timely manner.
