The Carrot Project is seeking a full-time executive director to join their team. The Carrot Project is based out of Boston, but this is a remote position.
The Carrot Project supports agricultural businesses that want to grow and build their path to sustainability. We do this as business advisors and through education, advocacy and research. We address the most important gaps at the intersections of financial security, racial and economic justice, financial barriers to farmland access, and farmers’ ability to weather major disruptions.
The Carrot Project is looking for an inspiring leader to be our next Executive Director. This person will need experience in systems-thinking to analyze complex problems down to the root level, the vision to design responsive and sustainable solutions, the start-up mentality to adapt and pivot as the landscape shifts, the patience and resolve to fully implement extensive projects, the passion and skill to engage and maintain diverse partnerships, as well as an ability to craft compelling narratives for fundraising and development. The successful candidate for the Executive Director position will be a collaborator with the board, staff, consultant team, lending and program partners, and our farm and food business clients in reaching these objectives. This is a remote position from a home office in New England.
The Executive Director is the chief executive officer of The Carrot Project, securing and managing a current annual operating budget of approximately $500,000. This individual must have strong financial acumen and will report to a fiscal sponsor. Working closely with an engaged Advisory Board, the Executive Director provides leadership to set and carry out the organization’s vision and strategic plan, and is responsible for planning, organizing, and directing the organization’s operations and programs.
