Regardless of the position’s location, you will occasionally travel within the state to each office.

This position is ever-evolving, based on the needs of the communities NWIRP serves, and will require someone who excels at initiating and leading delivery of services, works well independently as well as in a team, is highly adaptable, and is able to build rapport with a diverse community of clients, partner organizations and internal staff.
