Land Protection Manager – Capitol Land Trust

0 Comment

Capitol Land Trust is seeking a Land Protection Manager who is highly motivated, passionate about local land conservation, and has a strong desire to be a part of our community.

The Land Protection Manager identifies and carries out new conservation easement and fee acquisition projects in Capitol Land Trust’s service area through close collaboration with the Conservation Director. This position carries out all phases of land acquisition projects from initial outreach and landowner negotiation, grant writing and funding procurement, due diligence, drafting legal documents, supervision of contractors (attorneys, appraisers, surveyors), through developing baseline reports and management plans. The Land Protection Manager takes part in conservation planning and facilitates important communications, negotiations, and relationships, including partnerships in landscape-scale conservation, to further the interests and mission of the organization.

CLT has a culture of positivity, empathy, and gratitude that is shared by its 10 staff and 15 board members. Giving staff the tools and support they need to be successful is prioritized and self-care is encouraged. All current CLT staff are still working remotely, but the successful candidate must be willing to relocate to the greater Olympia area.

We understand this may be a strange and challenging time to start a new job, with many people juggling increased responsibilities at home. For the right candidate, we’re open to considering flexible scheduling options, such as working less traditional hours and/or starting part-time and increasing to full-time later in the year. This position is particularly well-suited for someone interested in growing and advancing within the organization. If you enjoy working with people, are eager to learn and to grow into leading others someday while working with a high functioning team, this could be a great opportunity for you.
