Job Description: 

Justice Funders provides customized consulting services for philanthropic institutions wanting to shift toward regenerative practices and a Just Transition for philanthropy. We provide workshops and trainings based on Justice Funder’s frameworks; accompaniment services including coaching, advising, and mentoring; and, process design and facilitation for organizational change efforts to embed and operationalize racial and social justice values into all aspects of an organization’s work. We seek a Consulting Manager to support this growing and dynamic area of our work.

The Consulting Manager will be responsible for supporting consulting client engagements led by the Consulting Director or Senior Program Director. Such support includes project management and administration; research, writing and analysis; facilitation support; and, business development support. This person will be joining a staff of 11 team members who, through leadership or co-leadership of their respective areas of work and crossteam collaboration, are moving our mission forward, including: (1) Facilitating equitable grantmaking practices; (2) Supporting philanthropic leaders to become conscious practitioners for a Just Transition in Philanthropy; (3) Supporting individuals and institutions to deepen their alignment and practice towards a Just Transition; and, (4) Amplifying the efforts of regenerative economic movements and allies in philanthropy across the broader field.

We are seeking someone who is intellectually curious and creative; has a strong desire and capacity for diversity in professional challenges; and, has a passion and commitment to helping philanthropic organizations operationalize values and pursue justice. The nature of this position will also demand a high-level of organization and attention to detail. We seek a self-aware individual who is attuned to both their strengths and areas for growth and has a keen sense of when external support may be necessary. As a small team with a tight strategy, we work in very complementary and interconnected ways. Thus, it will be necessary for this person to excel in their independent management of work, while engaging in exceptional teamwork and proactive communication. It is expected that all team members manage their own administration. Prior experience in consulting is preferred. The location for this position is preferred to be in or near the San Francisco Bay Area.

This position will primarily work remotely, however, we anticipate that this position will involve travel once it becomes safe to do so in the future. The Consulting Manager will report to Justice Funders’ Consulting Director and work very closely with the Senior Program Director and other staff on the team.
