La Maison Baldwin > Executive Director (Remote / France)

La Maison Baldwin seeks a visionary leader to steer it through a coming phase of organisational growth. This will be the organisation’s first paid staff position. It is a part-time, remote consulting job with the potential to transition to a full-time, onsite salaried position in the south of France.

Les Ami.es de la Maison Baldwin is a French non-profit cultural association (loi 1901) whose mission is to celebrate the life of James Baldwin in Saint Paul de Vence, the village on the Cote d’Azur where he lived for the last 17 years of his life.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • A personal and/or professional relationship to the work of James Baldwin.

  • Significant and measurable experience in non-profit fundraising.

  • Fluency in French language and culture.

  • A history of entrepreneurial community organising and leadership, particularly around social justice and racism.

  • Administrative and digital skills and the resiliency to fill many roles at once.

Job duties:

  • Fundraising: French government grants, U.S. foundations, major donors, crowdfunding, revenue-generating programmes.

  • Organisational spokesperson in the U.S. and France

  • Overseeing programmes such as the residency project and the welcome centre.

  • Managing interns and volunteers; staffing the board and committees.

  • Coordinating the 2021 International Conference on James Baldwin.

  • Developing online programming for pandemic times.

  • Serving as community liaison to the government, businesses and residents of St. Paul de Vence.

  • Guiding the future and vision of the organisation.

The position would begin immediately on a part-time, work-at-home contract basis. When fundraising benchmarks are met and pandemic conditions allow, the job would ideally evolve to a full-time salaried position in the south of France.

Salary is contingent upon experience and commensurate with the cost of living in southern France.

Deadline: 15 June 2020
