Hours and location: The expectation is that the Managing Director will work on average 30 hours per week. Specific work hours are flexible, with full time attention leading up to concerts and events. JusticeAid is a virtual organization, but the Managing Director is expected to attend occasional in person meetings, as well as any public events hosted by JusticeAid. (Reasonable travel and lodging expenses will be defrayed.) Presently, there are two concerts annually, and up to two in-person educational events, as well as two in-person board meetings that each take place in NYC and DC. Most meetings are ZOOM calls. 


Applications are being considered on a rolling basis, but for priority consideration, submit by February 29, 2024.


As a smaller organization, this position necessarily spans several areas, and we realize that even the best candidates may not possess expertise in all. JusticeAid presently enjoys contract support in the areas of bookkeeping, accounting, design and communications, as well as pro bono federal tax representation. The new Managing Director will have the benefit of overlapping with the current MD for onboarding and will work with the Board of Directors to determine the shape of the relationships with outsourced consultants going forward.
