The Texas Agricultural Land Trust (TALT) is a non-profit organization (501c3) whose mission is to conserve the open space, wildlife habitats, and natural resources of the agricultural lands of Texas. This will be the organization’s first full-time Chief Operating Officer, and the successful candidate will work closely with the founding Chief Executive Officer (Blair Calvert Fitzsimons) to structure this position with a goal of enabling the CEO to focus her time more on strategic goals.
• Education: this job requires at least the organizational, analytical, and communications skills normally acquired through the completion of a bachelor’s degree. An advanced degree or professional certification in a relevant field would be a valuable addition.
• Work experience: at least eight years in a comparable position, including proven ability to manage a small staff and fully support executive management and board members. Experience with a non-profit organization, particularly in conservation or a related field, would be a plus but is not required.
• Knowledge of the state of Texas and its private working land heritage, and an appreciation of its open spaces and the challenge of urbanization, would be ideal; knowledge of the culture and economics of ranching, wildlife management, hunting, and agriculture, with an understanding of the concerns of legacy landowners, is preferred.
