New York, United States
Salary Commensurate with experience
Closing date
Mar 20, 2024
Jew­ish Book Coun­cil seeks an inno­v­a­tive, steady-hand­ed, high­ly moti­vat­ed full-time Chief Oper­at­ing Offi­cer. Report­ing to the CEO, the COO has pri­ma­ry respon­si­bil­i­ty for struc­tur­ing and over­see­ing JBC’s day-to-day oper­a­tions and finan­cial health, cre­at­ing effi­cien­cies while iden­ti­fy­ing growth oppor­tu­ni­ties. As a trust­ed senior mem­ber of the lead­er­ship team, the COO will play a key role in help­ing to shape and deliv­er on the organization’s strate­gic vision and goals. The COO will work close­ly with CEO, lead­er­ship, and exter­nal stake­hold­ers as a thought part­ner, ideat­ing and suc­cess­ful­ly exe­cut­ing strate­gies that best ful­fill JBC’s mis­sion to edu­cate, enrich, and engage the com­mu­ni­ty through the Jew­ish lit­er­ary arts.

A Man­hat­tan-based non­prof­it, JBC has pro­mot­ed Jew­ish-inter­est lit­er­a­ture through its foun­da­tion­al pro­gram, Jew­ish Book Month, since 1925, and has added pro­grams such as the Nation­al Jew­ish Book Awards, author tours, book club resources, a lit­er­ary jour­nal, and more to meet the needs of an ever-chang­ing Jew­ish and pub­lish­ing land­scape. JBC is sit­u­at­ed at the inter­sec­tion of the Jew­ish com­mu­ni­ty and the pub­lish­ing world, a role that has become even more vital in recent days, as JBC is a cru­cial advo­cate and sup­port sys­tem for authors, pub­lish­ers, and readers. 

The COO will help JBC move into this next cru­cial phase of deep­ened impact, cre­ative ini­tia­tives, and diver­si­fied rev­enue. JBC is a small, ded­i­cat­ed, col­lab­o­ra­tive team. We seek an enthu­si­as­tic new mem­ber who is pas­sion­ate about lit­er­a­ture, pub­lish­ing, and the ways in which Jew­ish lit­er­a­ture can be an excit­ing access point to Jew­ish life, iden­ti­ty, and culture.
