Hundreds of funders around the world rely on CEP for insights on maximizing their organization’s effectiveness. Building on our decades of experience, CEP is launching the new Learning Institute to support funders in implementing data-backed changes in their work. The Learning Institute will offer peer cohorts, workshops, and learning opportunities for foundation staff and leaders. As we build these exciting new offerings, CEP seeks a skilled Associate Manager to join its San Francisco, CA office.
Reporting to the Learning Institute Director, the Associate Manager position works closely with the Director to design, market, and deliver workshops, trainings, and peer learning cohorts. The Associate Manager collaborates on Learning Institute strategy and content design, leads communications with participants, manages technical aspects including registration and online course curricula, and represents CEP in virtual and in-person speaking engagements alongside the Learning Institute’s Director and other CEP staff. This role presents a unique opportunity to shape and build CEP’s offerings at an important moment of growth.
