The Southern Environmental Law Center has a central leadership role to play, so we are accelerating efforts to identify and engage a growing circle of friends who can help sustain our powerful organization and further SELC’s protection mission. The skills and experience of our newly created Salesforce Administrator position will help us realize this vision.

The Salesforce Administrator will lead the ongoing development of our Salesforce Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP) deployment. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of improving processes and adoption using the Salesforce platform. She/he will be responsible for executing the day-to-day configuration, support, maintenance and improvement of our CRM platform.

This is a full-time position reporting to the Director of Development, Operations based at SELC’s Charlottesville headquarters. This position may be performed on a remote basis through the COVID-19 pandemic, but is expected to be full-time, onsite as our Charlottesville office reopens.

  • Proven ability to design and implement new processes and facilitate user adoption.
  • Strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. You have a genuine interest in and commitment to helping SELC create and foster a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace.
