UConn Extension’s Solid Ground Program team is looking for a new project coordinator this winter to help lead training programs for new and beginning farmers.
Responsibilities: As a team project, the right candidate will be able to support existing staff in implementing an aggressive schedule of events. After shadowing our existing staff, the Coordinator will be able to serve as the UConn Extension staff member on-site for select training. The Coordinator will often serve as project representative at public events (farmer conferences, webinars, state agency meetings). Responsibilities will also include working closely with some of our program partners to successfully craft and co-host learning opportunities. Although this is a 6 month position, we are looking for someone with the potential to work steadily year round — including summer months — at 15 hours/week.
Compensation – $26.25/hour. Timesheets are submitted every two weeks. This is a temporary,
project-based position without benefits. Renewal of position is based on need and performance. Funding is currently in place for 3 project years. This position is funded by a grant from USDA.
Applications due December 4th.
