Location – Remote/California

These positions do not need to be based in Sacramento and are open to anyone within California. With the onset of COVID-19, our team has moved to a fully remote work environment and expects to operate this way indefinitely. As COVID-19 subsides we will eventually return to a hybrid model of supporting the field both virtually and in-person, and each team member will be expected to travel throughout the state and attend certain meetings in Sacramento.

Salary and Benefits

The salary for the Program Specialist position is $65,000 annually. The excellent benefits package currently includes eleven paid holidays, sick, and vacation leave; medical, dental, and vision insurance, an employee assistance program; and a defined benefit retirement plan (CalPERS). 

Equitable Hiring Practices

The Foundation for California Community Colleges is working to ensure hiring practices are more equitable. Names, educational institutions, etc. are removed from applications to help reduce implicit bias in the hiring process. Names will be shared once candidates are moved onto the first round of interviews.
