The Beaufort Jasper Housing Trust seeks an experienced professional to lead the organization through steady growth and increased impact. The Beaufort Jasper Housing Trust (BJHT) was created in January 2023 to create and preserve affordable housing in Beaufort and Jasper Counties in South Carolina. Initially two counites, one city and 5 towns united to provide $7,300,000 to support its activity and the State of South Carolina provided an initial $3,000,000 allocation. During its first year, the organization contracted administrative support with another nonprofit and subsequently hired its own interim Executive Director and Office Manager.
Now, with a united and committed volunteer Board of Directors, established policies and systems, and broad community support, BJHT seeks its first full time Executive Director. The Beaufort Jasper Housing Trust is recruiting a motivated and professional individual to lead its affordable housing efforts in the two-county area of the South Carolina Lowcountry.
The ideal candidate will be a compelling advocate for the mission of BJHT to create and preserve affordable housing in Beaufort and Jasper Counties, and able to lead the organization’s growth. The Executive Director will need to be a strategic thinker while building broad based support in the community and with legislators, real estate developers, workforce partners, community leaders, and state and local officials.
Previous experience leading affordable housing initiatives and creating key community relationships is crucial. Strong written and verbal communications skills are essential. Proficiency with databases, Microsoft Office Suite and other software is also necessary. The Director must be able to manage and prioritize multiple responsibilities, meet deadlines, and possess a high level of analytic skills. Prior nonprofit experience and experience working with Boards of Directors is preferred.
