A national organization, ACF values the opportunity to be based in Minnesota, where most of the staff lives. Individuals outside the region are invited to apply only if they are willing to relocate to or near St. Paul, Minnesota (when it is safe to do so). ACF can offer a modest relocation allowance.
ACF recognizes that often the most exciting candidates do not apply for various reasons, and strongly encourages applications from individuals who may be unsure if this role is a fit for them.
ACF’s commitment to being a racially equitable organization guides its work, striving to build a community with racial equity at the center. ACF seeks to attract candidates with similar priorities and strongly encourages individuals who identify as BIPOC or other underrepresented identities to apply.
ACF will begin reviewing applications on October 31, 2021. Cincinnatus invites interested candidates to send an electronic letter of introduction and résumé via our online portal at https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/a922bd7420f840db99a56010a66a4739.
