Full-Time Position: This position will begin as an hourly role for 35-40 hours per week and eventually transition into a salaried role averaging 40 hours per week

With a nearly 25 year history in Squirrel Hill, Ten Thousand Villages Pittsburgh is the leader of the fair trade movement in our city. As part of a network of nonprofit Ten Thousand Villages US (TTV US) stores throughout the United States, we create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to markets through long-term, fair trading relationships. We are looking for a motivated candidate who will manage the store, lead the staff and volunteers, build local partnerships to facilitate off-site sales, expand our community engagement program, and support initiatives to expand our reach in nonprofit giving and development opportunities alongside our retail operations.

Who We Serve:

We support global artisans by growing sales. By investing in partnerships, TTV US helps more than 20,000 unemployed and underemployed artisans in 30 developing countries earn a decent and fair living, breaking the cycle of generational poverty. TTV US chooses to work with women, people of disabilities, and other demographics often excluded from the global economy. As an independent board store with a purchasing contract with TTV US, our store’s sales in Fiscal Year 2019-20 contributed $150,000 to artisans through financial investments and development, supporting the livelihoods of approximately 150 artisans and their families around the globe for that year.

In Pittsburgh, we benefit the community through our engagement efforts. Our outreach efforts reach grade school students to college students to senior citizens, small business owners to artists to investors, and local residents to visitors to our city. In total, we engage approximately 9,000 Pittsburgh residents and visitors each year. We also support area nonprofits, schools, religious organizations, and community groups through donations and fundraising partnerships.
