The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is seeking a Director for our Northeast Regional Office. NCAT is a private non-profit organization that works to foster and promote sustainable technologies and systems, especially for the benefit of economically disadvantaged individuals and communities. This is a great opportunity for a motivated, enthusiastic individual to increase NCAT’s service and visibility in Pennsylvania and surrounding states. The director must be experienced and skilled at building and developing relationships with sustainable and organic farmers and agriculture organizations as well as working with more conventional operations to develop sustainable practices. You must be prepared to promote NCAT’s projects and services throughout the Northeast, and develop new mission focused work in the region. The position will be based at NCAT’s office in Forty Fort/Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania.

The position requires the equivalent of a MA/MS degree plus a minimum of seven years of increasingly responsible professional experience, and preferably personnel and project management experience. An interest and experience in clean energy issues and rural development would be helpful. Experience collaborating with other non-profits and demonstrated experience in developing project proposals in the nonprofit, government and private sectors would be useful. The successful candidate will need to be well-organized and able to work independently as well as with others. You should be an excellent communicator with experience in writing and public speaking. If selected, you will be an ambassador for NCAT with an excellent understanding and willingness to share NCAT’s mission and message. You should have proven relationships working with individuals, universities, sustainable agriculture and non-profit organizations in the Northeast. You should also be able to recognize development opportunities not only in sustainable agriculture but in all NCAT program areas. You should enjoy supervision and collaboration with a highly skilled professional staff. You must be willing to travel.


  • Recruit collaborators and partners for NCAT mission-related work.
  • Manage and lead projects.
  • Develop and write grant proposals.
  • Supervise staff in the Northeast region.

  • Communicate regularly with other NCAT field directors and senior managers, including the Executive Director.
  • Help further NCAT’s mission and strategic goals.
  • Cultivate, mentor and supervise student interns.

Salary and Benefits:
$40,000 – $60,000 depending on qualifications and experience. Excellent benefits include paid vacation and holidays, health, life and disability insurance, a cafeteria and 401(k) plan and a pleasant, professional working environment. NCAT will pay reasonable relocation costs.
