Job description

At Land Life, our ambition is not just to create positive change, but to inspire it. We're on a mission to restore our planet's 2 billion acres of degraded land, by planting the right trees, at the right time, and in the right place; leveraging technology every step of the way; and unlocking carbon and other new markets to fund this work. Our team is global, our impact is significant, and now we're looking for a Regional Manager who will join our US team and possesses a diverse set of skills. This is an opportunity to make a direct, positive impact for local communities, biodiversity and to use nature-based solutions to mitigate and adapt our planet to climate change.
Together, we create impact you can see.

Additionally, support from headquarters personnel is readily available to assist you as needed. You report to the Director North America.

  • Successfully implement and complete nature restoration projects.

  • Create and manage project budgets and timelines.

  • Manage and develop employees within the regional team in order to have and keep well-functioning and motivated employees who perform at the best of their potential.


WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?
  • Work in a highly engaged, rapidly growing international nature restoration company towards impact you can see. 
  • Expected salary range of $109,000-$157,000 (this range can shift pending experience, qualifications and location of the position)
  • 20 days vacation & 10 holidays
  • Continuation of full salary payment during the first 26 weeks of any extended illness
  • Coverage of up to 100% of health insurance
  • 401K with 3% contribution from Land Life - no match or vesting required

Job requirements

THIS IS YOU:

  • 10+ years of demonstrated work experience in project management or implementation within a relevant field, with a preference for forestry or carbon-related industries

  • Experience in developing strategic initiatives and effectively translating them into actionable plans within complex and uncertain environments.

  • Strong pre-existing network within the Pacific Northwest region or ability to grow current network, encompassing key stakeholders such as landowners, project developers, nurseries, universities, contractors, and other relevant parties.
