We’re looking for a grassroots organizer with at least several years of experience and a well-developed justice analysis, highly capable of collaboration and committed to shared leadership, passionate about movement-building, outgoing and energetic, ideally with some nonprofit management experience, and ideally based in the Burlington area or in central VT.

A person who is a good fit for the Lead Organizer role will be able to lead 350VT’s organizing productively even while our structure continues to evolve and organizational vision continues to be clarified, will believe in and value collective leadership, will be patient with the process, and will be enthusiastic about participating in building the systems for our work together.

The Lead Organizer position is full time (35 hours/week), ideally based out of our Burlington office or central Vermont. The position is paid at $20.50 – $23.50/hour depending on experience (annual salary range equivalent to $37,310-$42,770), with health insurance, paid time off, and a professional development budget.
