We’re looking for an Associate Director of Operations to join a fierce, smart team as we organize to fundamentally challenge racism and corporate control in our food system and build a Real Food future!
Real Food Challenge, a fiscally sponsored program of TSNE MissionWorks, leverages the power of youth and universities to create a fair and sustainable food system. After winning dozens of campaigns nationally that have resulted in $80 million committed to Real Food annually, we have proven that student organizing can drive substantial change in the food chain in every region of the country, at a wide variety of colleges. We believe that with a shift in strategy, we can have a radically greater impact! That’s why just this year RFC launched two initiatives: the Real Meals campaign, to change the food service management industry in coalition with farmers, ranchers, fishermen, and environmentalists; and a new movement called Uprooted and Rising, which will end college and university support for Big Food and racism in the food system, while directing the energy of our generation toward food sovereignty.
We’re looking for an Associate Director of Operations (Associate Director) with a passion for food justice and social movements, who also has a knack for the systems that bring support and transparency to movements. The Associate Director of Operations will join the leadership team to steward and strengthen systems for finances, hiring, staff support, and internal communications. As with other RFC senior staff, the Associate Director will additionally provide some support of RFC's programs, fundraising and/or coalition work.
This position will require significant hours (40-45 per week) to be worked on a regular basis.
We will consider exceptional candidates who demonstrate a strong combination of the qualifications and skills described below.
This job requires occasional weekend and evening work, including travel for national retreats, events and conferences every 1-2 months. We are based in Cambridge, MA in a building that is partially wheelchair accessible, with no on-site accessible bathroom, and our offices are on the third floor. Alternative meeting locations and/or accommodations will be considered to provide increased accessibility. Candidates residing in the Greater Boston area are strongly preferred.
$39,000-49,000 To be determined by location and experience.
