The Opportunity: The Common Market is looking for an energetic, organized self-starter seeking to launch his or her career in social enterprise. This is a two-year paid fellowship position in which the fellow plays a critical role in local food hub finances and learns what it really takes to run a nationally expanding non-profit local food distributor.

Background: The Common Market is a non-profit distributor of local farm food that is nationally recognized as an innovative social enterprise. Our mission is to strengthen regional farms while making the local bounty accessible to communities and the schools, universities, hospitals, restaurants, and retailers that serve them. We are looking for an individual who is highly motivated, results-driven and passionate about social enterprise, in addition to having the professionalism and experience to succeed in a demanding role that is critical to the success of the organization.

This is a dynamic Fellowship, where the scope of work may change as the Fellow becomes more adept, informed, and invested in specific areas of the business. The fellow will regularly work with The Common Market’s Development, Administration, Procurement, Sales and Warehouse teams to support the financial and operational health of the organization.
