Social Enterprise Program Coordinator (2019-10)

Company: Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County
Location: San Jose, CA
Status: Part Time, Non-benefitted, 19-24 hours/week


The Social Enterprise Program Coordinator (SEPC) is a highly organized and resourceful professional who will spearhead the development of two growing social enterprises within the Economic Development Services division at Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County. CCSCC’s Car Donation program sprung up 20 year ago out of a need to diversify funding resources that support refugees and immigrants. Today, the Car Donation program converts operating and non-operating cars into a steady stream of revenue that support CCSCC’s programs and mission. We are looking for the ideal candidate to take it to the next level!

The second social enterprise is in the early stages of development. For over 10 years CCSCC has offered Geriatric In-Home Aid classes to help refugees, immigrants, and others to find jobs in the healthcare industry. While the classes are established, we are looking for someone to support student outreach, screening, and subsequently job placement following class completion.

While reporting to the EDS Division Director, the SEPC will ensure efficient operation, coordination and promotion of social enterprise activities. The candidate will be an entrepreneurial self-starter who has outreach and marketing experience and a desire to advance our mission.
