Job Description: Overview: The Land Trust Alliance is a national conservation organization whose mission is to save the places people love by strengthening land conservation throughout America. As the national leader of America's land trusts, the Land Trust Alliance (the Alliance) works to dramatically increase the pace and improve the quality of private land conservation in America. Founded in 1982, the Alliance has mobilized the energy of more than one thousand land trusts and has created an unprecedented grassroots movement, one that has successfully saved more than thirty-four million acres of land and has the potential to save millions more.

Summary of Position:
In partnership with the Chesapeake Bay Funders Network, the Alliance is launching a new program in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed entitled, the "Chesapeake Bay Land & Water Initiative." The initiative's goal is to greatly advance local land trusts' strategy and capacity to accelerate strategic, permanent land conservation critical to protecting water quality in the Chesapeake Watershed. This includes elevating their role and partnerships with water-focused groups. Land trusts and their partners across the Chesapeake Watershed have the opportunity to play a leadership role in protecting and improving water quality in their communities. Many land trusts are already active in protecting and enhancing water quality through their conservation work, but can do much more if opportunities exist to grow their partnerships, skills and capacity.

The Chesapeake Program Manager position offers an exciting opportunity for an entrepreneurial, highly energetic conservation leader to develop, manage and implement this new initiative, and play a leadership role in the conservation community across the six-state region. The successful candidate must have a working knowledge or previous experience working with land trusts, preferably within the Chesapeake Watershed, and the ability to build and sustain close, working relationships with diverse stakeholders in the context of complex Chesapeake Watershed conservation, water quality, and land use issues. She/he will be responsible for overseeing the design, delivery and evaluation of a suite of tools and resources to land trusts and other partner organizations, such as training and mentoring programs, direct targeted grant investment programs, one-on-one technical coaching and assistance, and public policy advocacy activities and strategies. She/He will strategically work with consultants to bring a high level of expertise in such areas as strategic conservation planning, land stewardship, and communications.
Qualifications: * A minimum of five (5) years' experience working with nonprofit organizations, experience in Chesapeake Watershed land trust community a plus
* Familiarity with private land conservation techniques, water quality issues, and land trusts as they affect the Chesapeake Watershed
* Demonstrated ability to build and sustain work teams, and multi-stakeholder collaborations, and maintaining relationships with diverse partners
* Ability to facilitate diverse, multi-stakeholder processes
* Experience in managing grant funds, foundations programs and other philanthropic initiatives designed for impact in the conservation, environmental protection, community development, or public policy space
* Strong project management experience, including a minimum of 2 years demonstrated project budget management
* Experience in conference planning for large audiences preferred but not required
* Demonstrated ability to manage consultants and other contractors
* Exceptional oral and written communication skills
* Proven ability to plan, implement, and adapt programs based on evaluation to strengthen and enhance them
* Ability to work effectively without close supervision and as part of a team in a fast-paced work environment
* Minimum one (1) year demonstrated ability to fundraise at all levels including foundations, corporations and individuals
* Willingness to travel up to 40%, including weekends
* Bachelor's Degree in a related field required. Graduate degree preferred
