  • Serve as primary liaison with landlord, neighbors, and people who come into the office
  • Coordinate keeping the office space welcoming, clean, organized, and well supplied
  • Handle insurance and other key administrative processes
  • Pay bills, deposit checks, and keep tracking systems updated
  • Manage updating employment policies as needed

    • Create graphics and images for organizational materials

This position is primarily based out of 350VT’s office in downtown Burlington, with some remote work possible. The Operations Manager collaborates closely with 350VT board members, interns, volunteers, and most of all the 350VT statewide staff collective (this position supports and works closely with the staff collective but is not currently a part of the collective).

We’ll process applications on a rolling basis and make a decision as soon as we can, probably closing the application process by April 26. We encourage BIPOC, LGBTQ+, women, and people from other marginalized communities to apply.
