Metro is seeking a Capital Investments Program Manager

March 16, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Position summary

Are you passionate about working collaboratively with local parks providers, government and community voices to fund parks and nature capital projects with a community engagement, racial equity and climate resiliency lens? We seek a compassionate, collaborative, creative project manager and negotiator who centers community voices to lead as our Parks and Nature Capital Investments Program Manager at Metro.

This position plays a key role in advancing our mission: protecting clean water, restoring fish and wildlife habitat, and creating opportunities for people to enjoy nature close to home. Work closely with external and internal stakeholders to shape how we implement the Parks and Nature Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan and the Parks and Nature Bond Measure so that we as a government agency can accomplish things differently and lead efforts in dismantling systems of oppression.

This is an exciting time to join the Parks and Nature team! Thanks to voter investments, Metro’s parks and nature system is growing. A new $475 million bond will provide resources for regional projects across six program areas: land protection and restoration, improvements at Metro parks, Nature in Neighborhoods capital grants, “local share” money to support local park providers, walking and biking trails, and complex community projects such as providing public access to Willamette Falls.

What you will do
The Capital Investments Program Manager develops and oversees the program to Support Local Projects (“local share”) and develops the framework of the Nature in Neighborhoods capital grants program to meet the 2019 Parks and Nature Bond Measure’s purpose, principles and criteria.
