Qualifications Candidates must have at least two years of professional experience, with at least one year in a communications or development-related role. Candidates with an interest in criminal justice, economics and/or community development are preferred.

The ideal candidate will have an inquisitive mind with a pro-active attitude, be genuinely interested in nonprofit management, and be a natural problem-solver with exceptionally strong writing and communication skills. The position offers a lot of room for creativity and collaboration, so the successful candidate must be personable, motivated and work well under tight deadlines.
