Waterfront Park Programming Operations Manager, Friends of Waterfront Seattle
Posted by NPL Connects on Friday, September 6, 2019 at 10:00 AM PDT
Made possible by the demolition of the Alaskan Way Viaduct, Seattle’s future waterfront park is more than a park—it is a once-in-a-generation opportunity when the community’s values, vision, and investments align to achieve lasting economic, social, and environmental value—now, and for the benefit of future generations. This will happen through the force of philanthropy leveraging public investment that capitalizes on major, necessary infrastructure projects: the Elliott Bay Seawall replacement completed in summer 2017, and the removal of the Alaskan Way Viaduct in 2019. These publicly funded infrastructure projects open up 20 acres of public right-of-way, which the community is transforming into well programmed park spaces from Pioneer Square to Belltown, funded by a mixture of public and philanthropic resources.
The Park Programming Operations Manager will quickly be able to recognize where the organization currently is and where it is going to ensure future success. The successful candidate will bring sound professional judgment, collaboration, and conflict management skills to the job. A dose of humility, appreciation for the contributions of all team members and partners, extreme flexibility, and a passion for public space and parks will also serve the Park Programming Operations Manager.
