Concrete Jungle is seeking highly skilled and diverse candidates for our full time Director of Programs role based in Atlanta, GA. For this new role, we need someone who has the strategic visioning experience to help us prioritize and keep growing; the management chops to support the team and the culture we're working hard to build; and still has the willingness to jump in and deliver produce across town (because we're not yet so big that we don't all pitch in when it's needed!).
In this role, you'll be entrusted with the pivotal responsibility of working with the diverse and dedicated programs team that executes the activities of CJ's branches, Adventure Picks, and Produce Buyers Club. We'll look to you to inspire and motivate them, to support them to reach their ambitious outcomes, and to create a culture of excellence and core value alignment. This role will require on-the-ground work with our staff, volunteers, and partners and to be truly impactful, you will use those experiences to inform programmatic improvements. You'll also be a key partner to our leadership team as we together balance our short-term needs with the long-term vision we have for our impact in Georgia.
It's a big and exciting role - one where you will shape Concrete Jungle’s direction and oversee the work that most directly serves our mission. You’ll do this with the support of a staff eager to collaborate, our awesome board of directors, and hundreds of committed volunteers.Please view the full job description here.
