MORE ABOUT THE RO+LE

O+ is moving to a model of shared leadership and your responsibilities will shift based on these discussions. 


We hope this will eventually be a full time role, though there’s space for a candidate to come in at part time now if you prefer. O+ recognizes that you may need flexibility in your work schedule and need to work from home at times. We are in the process of moving to a flat compensation model in which all staff members are compensated at the same hourly rate. This equates to approximately $58,240 for a full time position, or $28 an hour. Please note, salary negotiations won’t be a part of the hiring process as a result of this flat structure. This position includes paid time off, Sabbatical, and health benefits.


We believe that art, music, and wellness should be inclusive and accessible. O+ is an equal opportunity employer. We are committed to being an organization that is inclusive and equitable for all. This commitment aligns with our ongoing work to dismantle structures of racism and oppression within our organization and work, which we expect all team members to participate in. We actively seek applicants from many backgrounds, including but not limited to people with disabilities, BIPOC, LGBTQI+ people, formerly incarcerated people, first- or second-generation immigrants, and people from low-income backgrounds. 


Candidates should send a resume, and a cover letter addressed to Holly Kelly by July 10, 2021. Please put “Your Name, Wellness Director” in the subject line and send it to joinus@opositivefestival.org. In your cover letter, please let us know how the mission of O+ is reflected in your work or values, and what unique qualities you would bring to O+ as the Wellness Director.
