Ecology Center Background:
The Ecology Center’s mission is to inspire and build a sustainable, healthy, and just future for the East Bay, California, and beyond. The Ecology Center transforms the ideas of sustainability into everyday practice. We offer information you can act on, infrastructure you can count on, and leadership for lasting change. We are working toward a world of resilient communities, zero waste and toxics, equal access to healthy food, sustainable resource use, and a safe and stable climate.
Founded in the run-up to the first Earth Day in 1970, the Ecology Center has been a regional and national leader on a wide range of issues, turning vision into action and cementing it with advocacy. We operate the nation’s first and longest running curbside recycling service, nationally recognized food and farming programs, and model education and engagement activities.
We are a committed, congenial, and diverse staff dedicated to making the world a better place through action. Every employee is integral to the success of our organization. We value vision, collaboration, and creative problem-solving. If you are passionate, talented, and qualified, we encourage you to apply to be part of our team.
The Ecology Center is a membership organization built on direct services, strong community connections, face-to-face client engagement, on-line communications, strong administration, and deep organizational relationships. For the last decade, our membership has been solid and steady, allowing us to survive the economic challenges and branch out into new areas. Our service, quality, visibility, and impact have grown significantly while our membership has remained static. The Ecology Center is seeking to build a sustainable, long-term fund development program that steadily increases both numbers of members and total giving.

We are seeking a seasoned, dedicated, and ambitious self-starter with strong leadership and management skills. This is a senior position that will also engage in long-term strategic visioning and planning. This position requires an exceptional capacity for teamwork as well as the ability to be self-directed. In addition, qualified candidates will have the following:
