TWT is hiring a Coastal Program Manager
The Coastal Program Manager will play a critical role in supporting the leadership team responsible for setting and achieving the organization’s programmatic goals along the Texas Gulf Coast. This person will be expected to work well in a dynamic team environment and be comfortable with quickly-changing priorities amid multiple deadlines. TWT is a young, forward-thinking NGO and this is an opportunity to work in a space where conservation is being approached with creative thinking. While there will be many types of responsibilities associated with this role, we see this position as allowing the right individual to have a part in shaping their trajectory in the organization. We are a mission-driven organization that is small, but nimble, and we foster an environment that is supportive, empathetic and also demanding.
The Program Manager will be responsible for managing TWT’s existing portfolio of coastal projects, looking for opportunities to expand TWT’s Connected Coast initiative, and helping to identify funding opportunities. Over the past 18 months, TWT has greatly expanded our coastal footprint, and this is an opportunity to manage and grow an existing, successful conservation portfolio. Responsibilities include the execution of the scientific portion of our work, managing relationships with project partners, engaging stakeholders, and representing TWT at events. The Program Manager should have a sound understanding of coastal ecosystems, bay and estuarine salinity regimes, and freshwater inflows. Familiarity with migratory bird patterns and near shore aquatic species and dynamics is a plus.
