We're hiring! Two positions: Glassblower and Development Director. Information below!
We have two positions to fill! Are you the right person to work with us?
GlassRoots is hiring a part-time instructor to work in our hot shop and join our amazing teaching and artistic staff. This is a skilled artistic and technical work position which includes provision of instruction, and fabrication and repair of glass pieces in the hot shop.
We seek a self-motivated individual who can assist in the delivery of our artistic programs, offered to our target audience of disengaged youth and young adults as well as to the general public. The work involves instruction of youth and adult students in the hot shop, the operation of facilities required for the instruction, fabrication and repair of a wide variety of glass pieces.
On any given day you’ll be providing instruction to students participating in GlassRoots’ long and short term programs, teaching adults in recreational programs, and maintaining the hot shop. Additional responsibility includes the creation of sales and commissioned works.
The position begins as soon as March 1. This is part-time position, with growth potential, which will begin with 15-20 hours per week to assist with our growing demand.
Reposted due to staff relocation
We are seeking a skilled storyteller, fundraiser, and ‘donor-engager’ with the energy and creativity to take our development efforts to a new level. The ideal candidate will have at least 3 years of experience with nonprofits, and a desire to work part-time (about 20 hours/ week), with anticipation that this position will grow to a full-time position within three years. The Development Director is responsible for managing our individual giving program, grants portfolio, and contributing to our overall message and communications efforts.
We’re moving to a space over 4x bigger than our current space later this year! During this year of transition, we see this position as a critical part of communicating our vision, impact and excitement, and enlarging our pool of supporters. We are at an important point of evolution for the organization with many opportunities ahead of us to engage new communities and expand our impact.
Our wonderful DD relocated and is finding distance working just isn't working. Lucky for our new hire, our present DD will help with onboarding.
Full job descriptions and application instructions are in the files below. We are committed to the principles of equal opportunity and diversity and to attracting and supporting a staff and board who represent the rich diversity of the communities we serve.
No phone calls please. Applications will be accepted until positions are filled.
