Sweet Job: Events Manager for Solar Non-Profit
Because many of you are looking for a job — or, if you’re already working, likely keeping your eyes open for a better job — we occasionally feature what we like to call Sweet Jobs, or gigs that rock for whatever reason.
This week’s pick:
GRID Alternatives is an entrepreneurial, high-growth non-profit organization that provides renewable energy and energy efficiency services to low-income families. They’re looking for an Events Manager to help with their growing Solarthon events.
Solarthons are unique solar block parties and fundraisers where GRID Alternatives installs several solar electric systems in one day with teams of corporate sponsors, individual fundraisers, local job trainees, and the homeowners themselves. The right Events Manager candidate will be high energy, highly organized and have some fundraising and nonprofit experience.
As GRID Alternative continues to grow, the Events Manager will have the opportunity to develop other fundraising events. Three to four years of nonprofit event planning is preferred, as well as strong communication skills. If you’re interested in this full time position based in Oakland, CA, apply here!
