PSCC Executive Director Job Post

Job Posting: Executive Director for Prairie State Conservation Coalition


Illinois’s Prairie State Conservation Coalition (PSCC) is looking to fill its newly-created Executive Director role. This position will serve as the organization’s first full-time staff position, leading the organization in its exciting next chapter as a dynamic statewide collaborator with private and public conservation entities.

The application period for this position is coming to a soft close. Applications submitted by October 14, 2022 will be given full consideration; however, the position is considered open until it is filled. Early application is encouraged. 

Please share this opportunity widely with your networks.  The attached Job Description (here’s a printable version) details job responsibilities, preferred qualifications, and a competitive compensation package, among many other details.

Two open houses were held last month to provide applicants with a background on land trusts and the state of conservation in Illinois. These sessions were to allow individuals unfamiliar with PSCC and the work of its members to learn about the work of conservation land trusts and the broader conservation sector prior to submitting an application. These open houses were designed for individuals who may be new to the land conservation community or broader conservation sector; however, everyone is invited to attend regardless of experience or background.
