We admit it. We expect A LOT out of our team. We live, breathe and love our mission to promote a better life for Alaskans, and it shows in the work we do, every day. Help us grow, so we can do even more. We are seeking two new full-time employees. We want leaders in strategic thinking who also can write with exceptional attention to detail, who can juggle multiple tasks, who will thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative environment in which new projects abound. The successful candidates will serve as a resource for the Foundation Board and work with everyone on staff. As such, the individuals must bring a blend of tact, diplomacy, joy and creativity to the position.  A smart, talented team from diverse backgrounds builds a more inclusive — and more capable — organization. You might be the right fit.

The ideal candidates will come with at least five years of increasingly responsible work experience in an area that matches the Foundation’s interests and priorities. Positions will remain open until filled; however resumes will be reviewed Dec. 1, 2018. The Foraker Group is managing the application process.
