If you regularly follow us on this blog or on social media, you likely have noticed that Echoing Green has been doing quite a bit of hiring over the last year. What’s up with that, you ask? Echoing Green is entering into the second year of our ambitious three-year strategic growth plan, which is positioning us to deepen our support for next generation social change talent across all of our programs. It’s an exciting time to be an organization at the center of innovative social change thinking. And it’s a priority for us to influence this social innovation movement by connecting talent to the resources they need to blossom. As an organization, we need the right people on our team to help make that happen.
We couldn’t be more excited about the unique new roles we have created to support our ambitious growth plan. We’re thrilled to announce our search to fill two brand new roles, specifically supporting our Executive Office: Chief of Staff, and Associate to the Executive Office. As we create these positions, we know we're looking for entrepreneurial creative thinkers to join us—people who can initiate a role and breathe life into it beyond what reads on paper. I don’t take this quality lightly: candidates will be joining and supporting a staff that is integral to the evolution of the organization. We’re not alone in this growing phase, so in addition to reviewing the roles available at Echoing Green, investigate the opportunities cropping up at our Fellows’ organizations and at our likeminded peers across sectors below.
