Green Jobs workforce promotion project manager — Job Announcement

The New Hampshire Timberland Owners Association (NHTOA), New Hampshire’s forest industry and landowner trade association, is seeking a part-time (1 to 2 days/week) project manager to run a three- year forest products/green jobs workforce development project. This project is a collaborative effort between the NHTOA, New Hampshire Project Learning Tree (NHPLT), UNH Cooperative Extension, and The Conservation Fund (TCF).

The project manager will identify forest industry career training opportunities and career pathways and promote them to young adults (high school, career technical education – CTE, home-schooled, and non- traditional school students) and adults (veterans, new Americans, and reformed Dept. of Corrections residents). They will promote these opportunities in schools with school counselors, educators, and students. They will assist and participate in career field days, and teacher tours, and connect schools with local businesses and forestland owners willing to host tours and internships. The project manager will work closely with the NHTOA staff and partner organizations and draw from the NHPLT Green Jobs curriculum.

Using feedback from school counselors, educators, students and the forest industry, the project manager will identify “Industry Recognized Credential” opportunities. They will also serve as a conduit and clearinghouse for internship, apprenticeship, work study, and on-the-job training opportunities to schools and CTE centers.

We are seeking someone with a background or knowledge in natural resource management, career counseling, environmental/science education, natural resource education, or program administration. This position requires excellent communication (written and verbal – public speaking a must) and organizational skills.

This is a part-time position. The project will focus on schools, CTE centers, and non-traditional students in Coös, northern Carroll, and northern Grafton counties, with work occurring in the rest of the state as time permits. Although the position is based out of the NHTOA’s office in Concord, N.H., this position will require statewide travel and working remotely.

Compensation is $25 – $27/hour and will be commensurate with experience.
