apologies for cross-postings

SEEDS is Hiring!

Job Title:  Project Manager: Great Lakes Bioneers Conference Coordinator
SEEDS, an ecologically focused non-profit research, design and educational institution is seeking a project manager for the Great Lakes Bioneers Conference.  This annual conference brings together over 500 people who meet, learn, and network at the rich crossroads of the ecology and social justice movements.  This Project Manager will work directly with the Executive Director.  The primary job focus will be on 2008 conference coordination and will include supporting other existing SEEDS projects.  We are looking for a self-motivated, well organized, flexible and engaging person living in the Traverse City region.  A passion for potlucks is advised.
Job Description:
This will be an hourly position, and the employee will be eligible for the modest yet creative benefits package all SEEDS employees receive including flexible scheduling.  This position will average 20 – 30 hours per week throughout the year; the number of hours and other project opportunities are somewhat flexible depending on applicant’s interests and capacity.  That said it needs to be understood that the number of hours dedicated to the conference will gradually increase through the summer and then surge until the conference itself, October 17-19.  Further, many of these hours will be at meetings and events during evenings and weekends.
The hourly base rate is dependent on experience and will be in the range of $12-$15/hour.  View of the bay is half the pay?  Fundraising experience and passion is a plus!
For a more detailed job description see our website.
Please submit a cover letter and resume with references.  Position open until filled, but won't be open long!
