Position: Associate Program Director with promotion to Program Director following 6 month training period. See below for more information.
Salary Range: 45,000-50,000; plus Benefits Package (Health, Dental, Retirement, 5 weeks PTO)
Reports to: Board of Directors
Location: Philadelphia or Remote
Introduction and Summary:
Bike & Build is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that hosts cross-country and regional cycling trips centered on engaging young adults around affordable housing issues across the country. Bike & Build’s staff is small but mighty, made up of 3 full-time Directors. Together with the Director of Outreach and Communications (DOC) and the Director of Operations and Development (DOD), the Program Director (PD) works to ensure the long term sustainability, success, and growth of the organization. The staff structure is unique in that there is no Executive Director; the 3-Director, laterally-structured staff collaborates daily with the Board of Directors, with the full-time staff taking on considerable responsibility in directing the future of the organization.
The selected applicant will start as an Associate Program Director and train with the current Program Director during the 2022 Summer program season. The training period will last approximately 6 months after which the selected applicant will become the Program Director and receive an increase in pay equal to that of the two other Directors. The current annual pay for Directors is $54,500.
The list of qualifications below is provided to not only give you an idea of what we are looking for in a candidate, but also provide some insight as to what the day-to-day role is of a PD while they are not traveling to orientations or end of trips. The ideal Program Director is not expected to enter this role knowing how to do everything listed on these pages, but take some time to seriously consider whether these are projects you would like to work on. That being said, there is some knowledge that is best learned before coming into this position (like the ability to confidently and safely ride a bicycle, as one example).
This is a full-time, year-round position, with benefits. While Bike & Build’s headquarters are in Philadelphia, there are opportunities for this position to be performed remotely and will be discussed during the interview process. While participation in a previous Bike & Build trip as a Rider or Trip Leader is a plus, it is not required.
