We are hiring a new partner who will work with our growing team of water experts across a variety of projects that include planning, programs or policy change for gray and natural infrastructure needed for drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater. This position will work directly with local partners around the Pacific Northwest to craft innovative water infrastructure solutions that improve environmental, health, and community development outcomes.
This new partner will help grow our water infrastructure technical assistance work, with a focus on finding sustainable, community-centered water solutions for small, low-income, and rural communities, tribal governments, and others that have experienced inequity under past investments.
Location: Hybrid or remote, Oregon or Washington
Closing: Open until filled. Application review begins 2/20/22
Salary: $68,000-$85,000 depending on relevant experience and skills
We hired for a similar position last year. Check out the informational webinar from last spring that discusses who we are, what it’s like to work at the Partnership, and similar roles and responsibilities this position will have to the position we hired for then.
What to Expect?
This is a new position, with room to grow the work in directions that align with the new partner’s interests and skills. We’re a collaborative team, and even after the onboarding process is complete for new staff, we provide additional programmatic support as each new partner learns our unique systems and skill sets, until they feel prepared to lead specific community-based projects.
This position provides a unique opportunity to:
- Manage and support an exciting variety of projects that span water infrastructure planning and implementation, natural infrastructure and restoration, collaborative decision-making, local and state policy change, and community visioning.
- Work collaboratively with diverse communities (including tribal governments, communities of color, rural communities, and low-income communities) and sectors to imagine and implement solutions individualized to meet each community’s values and their water challenges in ways that benefit the environment, human health, and community development.
- Lead creative problem solving with diverse collaborative groups through facilitation, process management, and/or community visioning & engagement.
- Maintain and grow a diverse network of partnerships and professional relationships.
- Support colleagues and external partners as they seek funding from foundation, state, and federal sources.
