Circulate is Hiring for our Leadership Team

Given the hot labor market, Circulate is re-issuing our postings for Director of Planning and Director of Development roles, both at a higher salary band.

Our Director of Planning will supervise a team of four planners and a large portfolio of value-oriented planning and outreach activities. This position is perfect for a lateral jump into a nonprofit, or for an up-and-comer looking to take the next step in their career to develop leadership, management, and business skills.

Our Director of Development will be a new position, to lead our fundraising efforts and to grow our membership engagement. This is a great opportunity for a nonprofit professional looking to help a high profile organization take the next step in growth and influence. 

 Farewell: Danielle Berger

It is with bitter sweet emotion, we wish our Director of Planning, Danielle Berger, a happy farewell! CLICK HERE to read as she shares about the great work she has done and her experience with us.

We wish her the best of luck with all her future endeavors!
