Catholic Migrant Farmworker Network (CMFN) is dedicated to engendering pastoral care for the spiritual needs of these people on the move.

Catholic Migrant Farmworker Network seeks a dynamic, faith-based leader with demonstrated commitment to social justice for the position of Executive Director.

The Executive Director is both the public face of CMFN and the manager of this small nonprofit organization. The successful candidate will have demonstrated a commitment to social justice through past work with immigrant communities or other marginalized groups. The successful candidate will have at least five years’ experience with Spanish speaking immigrants, including advocacy and community organizing experience. Strong written and oral communication skills are desired, especially with people of diverse cultures. The successful candidate should have a collaborative leadership style and a record of effective fundraising and supervision. At a minimum, a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited university is required. Prior experience with farm workers and/or rural immigrants is highly desirable. The successful candidate must be fluent in Spanish.

The CMFN office has been located in Canton, Ohio in the Diocese of Youngstown since 2009. In April 2013, the Board with a consultant created a five year strategic plan for the organization. There is a full time Executive Administrative Assistant, and a Volunteer from the Humility of Mary Volunteer Program will be joining the team in late August 2013.

Applications should include a letter of interest and a current resume which includes educational history, a record of employment with summary of duties and roles and at least three references with contact information. Interested candidates should submit their resumes to the CMFN Search Committee at cmfnetwork@gmail.com as a Microsoft Word or PDF formatted document. The Search Committee hopes to have a candidate to propose for Board approval by September 2013.
