Strong Professional Candidates From All Backgrounds Encouraged to Apply
The Sikh Coalition seeks qualified candidates for three full-time, salaried positions: Executive Director, New York City Sikh Community Advocate and Operations Manager.
The Sikh Coalition has defended the rights of more individual Sikhs in North America than any other organization using relatively little resources. The Coalition is currently inundated with more requests for help from across the country than our current operational infrastructure can handle. In response to community demand, the Coalition is significantly invested in increasing our capacity. We seek candidates who are capable and passionate about creating a professional, permanent, institutionalized voice for Sikhs in the United States and beyond.
The Executive Director will lead the Sikh Coalition toward developing a strong voice for Sikhs. The ideal candidate will be able to establish a strategy and execute a plan for growth that will further the organization’s mission. The Executive Director should be passionate about the Coalition’s mission, able to work with a wide range of people inside the Sikh community and have the ability to effectively represent the organization with leaders in other NGOs, government and the media. Salary is commensurate with experience. This position is based in New York City and reports to the Board of Trustees. Full Job Description / Application Instructions
