The Southern Maine Conservation Collaborative is expanding its staff at an exciting time of change and growth for the organization. We are a non-profit organization with the mission to work collectively in Maine to create mutually beneficial relationships with the earth, communities, and people through the conservation movement. SMCC works with many other conservation organizations in Maine to amplify, support, and build capacity for their work. Beginning in 2023, we are providing grantmaking to land trusts in the state, thanks to funding from the Onion Foundation. 

The Operations and Grant Program Director will work to establish and maintain efficient systems of operation for staff, finances, and general administration within SMCC. They will also oversee the Land Trust Grant Fund program, managing the processing of applications and communication with grantees. Supervision of other staff will become a responsibility over time.

Applicants must be organized and have excellent communication skills, as well as experience in both operations and financial management. SMCC is committed to building more inclusive and equitable conservation and environmental movements in Maine. For that reason, we will prefer candidates with a demonstrated enthusiasm for and commitment to an equitable, inclusive, and just conservation and environmental movement, and experience with equitable systems.

Please see the full job description for more details and requirements. 

This position is full time, and is expected to be a long-term, highly responsible position within SMCC. The organization has a hybrid/remote work policy, but least 20% of this position must be conducted in-person at the SMCC office in Portland.
