Now Hiring – Triad Program Manager

Job Description:  Triad Program Manager

Overview: The North Carolina Employee Ownership Center (NCEOC) is a nonprofit that serves as the central hub for resources on employee‐ownership for businesses in North Carolina. Its primary mission is to educate business owners, their advisors (lawyers, bankers, accountants, wealth advisors), and community leaders on the social and business benefits of employee ownership. NCEOC is a statewide educational nonprofit that is dedicated to protecting jobs, increasing community wealth, and creating a more vibrant, inclusive economy.

NCEOC educates the public about employee ownership through events, resources, case studies, and connections to service providers who can assist with employee ownership transitions. We serve the entire state, with a particular focus on outreach to Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC)-owned businesses and those with majority BIPOC workforces. Our overarching goal is to create broad‐based community wealth by increasing the number of employee‐owned businesses.

NCEOC was founded in May 2019 by a group of volunteers and hired its first Executive Director December 2020. With funding from the Winston-Salem Foundation, NCEOC launched its second community-based program in Forsyth County in the summer of 2021. We are now ready to add a Program Manager focused on Forsyth County and eventually the larger Triad area.
