About Lloyd EcoDistrict:

Lloyd EcoDistrict engages all aspects of our community to form partnerships, and develop programs that create a connected, prosperous, and resilient neighborhood. We set goals and implement initiatives where people, planet and profit are considered equally. We do this in a way which create replicable models so that other communities may learn and benefit from our successes. We prioritize projects which address transportation, waste prevention, energy efficiency and water through a lens of social equity and well-being.

About Position:

Lloyd EcoDistrict is a visionary non-profit organization that forms partnerships in order to find neighborhood scale solutions to some of our most vexing problems, through the lens of sustainability and resilience. We are in a growth mode and need to find an operations manager who can get and keep us organized so we can continue to do the innovative work we’ve been doing for the past eight years.
We’re seeking the kind of person who is the definition of organized; someone who enjoys color coding spreadsheets and sock drawers in excel at the same time, while planning a trip to the Azores. We need that certain someone who is a systems thinker and doer. We seek someone who has whipped things into shape, and has done so with integrity and diplomacy.

We are a small office of Swiss army knives—we all can and must do a lot of different things. The primary focus of this position is to get this office and our staff, systems and processes running like a well-oiled machine. Once that is on track there is room to grow into this position in terms of community based work as it relates to government relations, the houseless community, resilience and emergency preparation, transportation, waste prevention, community outreach and place making. There really is no end of exciting, innovation collaborative work that we get involved with, and once you have conquered the operations realm, we anticipate the ops manager growing into other aspects of our work with the community, in the focus area that is your passion.
