Job Description - Executive Director
Full Time (will consider a part-time arrangement for exceptional candidates), Remote (work from anywhere!), Works in Collaboration with the Board of Directors.
NC3’s mission is to educate, advocate, and activate community capital. NC3 defines community capital is a set of strategies that allows people of any economic status to invest in their community.
Part network, part think-tank, and part collaborative, NC3 was founded in 2017 by a group of innovative thought leaders with expertise in a variety of fields related to finance and community development. They shared the concern that systemic economic problems were undermining life in communities across the country; they shared a vision of a more sustainable, inclusive, and democratic economy; and they were united in their belief in the potential of grassroots community champions and Main Street investors from across the economic spectrum working together to drive meaningful systemic change.
NC3’s programming is currently focused on expanding the community capital ecosystem through NC3’s Community Capital Accelerator and related educational cohorts. Through the Accelerator, NC3 consults directly with community builders to embed community capital in their projects, most of whom are developing "diversified community investment funds" (DCIF). NC3’s educational cohorts are directed at growing the pool of technical assistance providers trained in community capital strategies so that they can support the growing demand for alternatives to the extractive economy.
This role serves as the staff lead for the organization. Working in collaboration with the Board of Directors, NC3 members (a variety of individuals and organizations nationwide), and other stakeholders, they will play a central role in planning, developing, and facilitating programs, events, and collaborative projects. They will be responsible for fielding inbound requests, coordinating outbound communications, and managing the day-to-day operations of a national coalition.
