About the Job
The Vermont Releaf Collective is seeking to expand our staff by hiring a Technical Assistance and Resource Manager. In this role, the Technical Assistance and Resource Manager (TA&R Manager) will be responsible for connecting members with resources, knowledge, and technical assistance to support businesses, farms, and growers in our community. This position will be the second full time staff person joining our team, and will work collaboratively with the Network Manager, Samantha Langevin. The TA&R Manager will support the knowledge and resource sharing pillar of Releaf’s work by understanding the landscape of experience and expertise in the Releaf community. We do not expect the TA&R Manager to be proficient in all of these areas, but rather to have a practical understanding of at least one of the following areas, and an appetite to learn about the others: agricultural practices, business development and support, and/or land relationships and stewardship.
This is a full time (40 hours/week) position with health, dental & retirement benefits. Access to reliable personal transportation is required. The position is mostly remote with some in-person meetings and in-state travel required. Ideal candidates will be willing and able to work regular evening and occasional weekend events. The Vermont Releaf Collective is committed to building an inclusive organizational culture and encourages people from all backgrounds to apply. 

To read the complete job description and learn how to apply, please see the attached PDF.  We will review applications on a rolling basis, and have extended the deadline to prioritize candidates who apply by Wednesday, March 22nd.


Employer's Approach to Diversity, Equity, & Belonging

Releaf centers equity and liberation through our values and practices as an organization. As a network created by and for BIPOC in so-called Vermont (unceded Abenaki territory), we prioritize living out our values of collective care and liberation for communities of color. Our work centers our community members - people of color in Vermont who are interested in land, environment, agriculture, and food.

We value the time and involvement of community members in the Collective, and recognize that folk of color in Vermont are often asked to provide unpaid labor in many spaces. This is why we emphasize the importance of compensating folks for facilitating, providing feedback, and other support shared with the community. We also play an active role in encouraging this culture across Vermont, and practice this by including our job posting guidelines as prerequisite information for external opportunity requests that are shared with our community. Feedback is a critical component of the Releaf community, and space for feedback within the Releaf team will continue to be a key facet as we bring on this new staff person.

This role will be our second full-time staff position, and the Board of Directors is eager to learn and grow with our growing staff, and continue to co-create an organizational culture that aligns with the values of our vibrant community: collective care, liberation, and radical re-imagination.
