Seeking Administrative Coordinator for the Fire Safe Council of Santa Cruz County

Background: The Fire Safe Council of Santa Cruz County is an incorporated 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 2016. Our mission is to educate and mobilize the people of Santa Cruz County to protect their homes, community, and the environment at risk from catastrophic fire. Two-thirds of Santa Cruz County is considered Wildland Urban Interface (WUI), putting a large percentage of our population, housing, economy, wildlife, and environment at risk.

The FSCSCC seeks an Administrative Coordinator to support and enhance the efforts of our volunteer board of directors to help the public learn to live with fire in Santa Cruz County. This is a limited term contract initiated and funded by the County Board of Supervisors through June 30, 2022, with the possibility of renewal in future years.

The position is for an estimated average of 20-25 hours per week and will be administered by the Resource Conversation District (RCD) of Santa Cruz County (who serves as the fiscal and administrative sponsor of the FSCSCC) and will report to the Executive Committee of the FSCSCC.
