Jobs and Internships

The Alliance is excited to announce the following position openings for part time fellowships and full time staff:


 

Community Planning Associate or Manager

Position Overview

The Planner will lead Alliance efforts to shape land-use, transportation, housing, and other community development plans for the benefit of our wildlife, wild places, and community character. They will manage a broad portfolio of projects, including both reacting to proposals (e.g. Hog Island Comprehensive Plan amendment, Snow King Base Area Masterplan, Natural Resource Land Development Regulations) and leading our own proactive projects (e.g. scenario planning, transfer of development rights policy). They will confidently help Alliance leadership determine how the Alliance should engage on projects and issues as they arise, develop compelling alternatives to projects we deem harmful to our community, and lead the technical development of proactive plans and policies to create a better future.

This work includes reviewing successful initiatives from similar communities, attending community planning meetings, discussing ideas with local experts and stakeholders, building relationships with key agency staff and community leaders, and providing technical recommendations for long-range planning in Teton County and the Town of Jackson.

The Planner will provide policy analysis and recommendations, write technical recommendations on behalf of the Alliance, and will advise the Executive Director, Board of Directors, and Alliance staff to ensure that all are sufficiently informed on key issues.

Compensation: This full time position will be filled at the Associate to Manager level depending on experience. Competitive salary ranges from mid-40s to low-50s depending on level. The Alliance offers a comprehensive benefits package including health insurance, retirement, vacation and holidays, flexible schedules, and the opportunity to do meaningful work for Jackson Hole.

Start date: The expected start date is July 22, 2019.
