I got this email a while ago, but it’s still not too late to apply. A great non-profit in Boston is looking for a new Executive Director. Bikes not Bombs, has been providing bicycles and education in the local Boston area as well as shipping bicycles overseas to developing countries with a large need for two wheeled mobility.
Here is the Email:
I am assisting board members from Bikes Not Bombs (BNB) with their executive transition. We have recently launched the search for a dynamic and skilled executive director to lead this internationally recognized organization and we are spreading the word about this opportunity as widely as possible.
Bikes Not Bombs (BNB) began in 1984 as a grassroots peace activist movement collecting and shipping donated bicycles. The organizationâ€™s mission integrates interests in the bicycle, the environment, peace and social justice. BNB pursues this mission through international development projects, local youth programs and a retail bike shop. BNB promotes bicycle technology as a concrete alternative to war and environmental destruction.
The BNB culture emphasizes a high reliance on trust and peer accountability rather than compliance with policies and procedures. The grassroots history and organizational culture is manifested in ways policies have or have not been developed.
Reporting to the board of directors, the executive director will manage the organizationâ€™s operations; guide and facilitate strategic decision making; lead fundraising; oversee financial management; and represent BNB in the community. The ideal candidate will have knowledge of grassroots organizations with collective cultures; experience with youth development, international development, and/or retail bike (or other social venture) operations; and passion for social justice and BNBâ€™s mission.
