Project management, client relationships, team building, entrepreneurial, milestone setting, communication skills
The Taproot Foundation engages Marketing, IT and HR professionals on pro bono projects to provide local nonprofits with high-quality, professional services. We make it easy for skilled professionals like you to donate your time effectively while gaining valuable exposure to the nonprofit community and your industry peers.
The Project Manager is the primary day-to-day point of contact with the nonprofit grantee client, and the day-to-day leader of the Service Grant team. A Project Manager owns the project schedule, ensures effective task delegation to both team and client members, and coordinates regular communications.
A successful Project Manager has two or more years of experience leading teams to deliver quality results, as well as experience directly related to one of our grant areas (i.e. marketing, human resources or databases/IT.)
