New Jersey Work Environment Council (WEC)
Executive Director Job Announcement and Description
Review of applications will begin immediately and end when a candidate is selected.
The New Jersey Work Environment Council (WEC) is seeking an Executive Director. This is an exciting and unusual opportunity for someone with the skills, experience, and commitment needed to help build a powerful movement for social change that unites labor, environmental, and community constituencies.
Founded in 1986, WEC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit alliance of 70 New Jersey labor, community, and environmental organizations working together for safe, secure jobs and a healthy, sustainable environment. Through organizing, coalition-building, public policy campaigns, education, training, and technical assistance, WEC promotes dialogue, collaboration, and joint action by workers, community members, and environmentalists.
While its programmatic efforts are focused in New Jersey, as the first state-based blue-green alliance, WEC has long served as a national model for labor-environmental collaboration. WEC’s public voice is well-informed, creative, and bold. We take on powerful corporate and political interests to serve our mission.
