Healing Arts Initiative (HAI) is a 45 year-old Long Island City-based arts and education organization dedicated to cultural accessibility. The $6 million organization has over 20 full-time staff and dozens of part-time staff engaged in the design, planning and delivery of high-quality arts access services to marginalized audiences. A comprehensive listing of the agency's history and current service offerings can be found at the agency website hainyc.org.

HAI's Board of Directors is currently seeking qualified candidates for the Executive Director position. The organization flourished for many decades, managed by its founding Director, until four years ago, and has, in the interim, undergone many positive changes. The organization has expanded fee-for-service earnings, increased government funding, relocated from Manhattan to LIC (saving rent and related overhead expenses) and expanded the staff and Board to create a strong, resilient, well-staffed company.

HAI is a diverse and complicated agency to manage, insofar as it is funded through multiple contracts and social-venture earned-income revenue streams. This diversity makes the organization simultaneously stable, while also requiring the Executive Director and senior staff to possess a sophisticated understanding of, and experience with non-profit finance and operational systems and controls. Simultaneously, many government funding sources are placing increased emphasis on outcome measures, where mental health and education contracts often require the design and implementation of various participation and progress reports. Familiarity with evidence-based practices and outcomes-based contracts is therefore a strongly preferred quality for Executive Director candidates.

The Board is currently interviewing candidates who are interested in and qualified for the Executive Director post for an immediate start. The departing Executive Director is available on a short-term/mid-term basis to assist the new Director and Board with any transitions.

Qualified applicants should possess most or all of the following:

Experience successfully serving as Executive Director of a non-profit agency with government and earned-income revenue

A strong understanding of finance, basic non-profit accounting and managerial and financial reporting systems and controls for tax-exempt organizations

A track record successfully reporting to a Board of Directors and external stakeholders, including funders, government officials and lenders

Experience hiring and cultivating staff talent, supervising a diverse workforce and ensuring company compliance with labor law and industry HR best-practices

An advanced degree in finance, accounting an MBA or equivalent is strongly preferred

Strong written and oral communication skills are a requirement, spanning grant-writing to public speaking and subject-matter presentations

Fundraising from foundations, corporations and individuals is, of course, an important part of the job, so experience and track record in this area is paramount

HAI works with a diverse range of staff and consultants, many of them artists, performers and teaching artists. Candidates should be comfortable working with a wide range of individuals and organizations and have a demonstrated commitment to and appreciation for the arts – as an individual or professional. Appreciating arts as both a means for healing, for social cohesion, for community building and as a tool for education and personal transformation is important insofar as it is essential that the Executive Director have a personal connection to the agency's mission and methods.

Applicants who are immediately available to interview and potentially assume control of the agency and who possess all or most of the experience and qualifications cited here should submit a resume with a cover letter and salary requirements to David Sweeny at dsweeny@hainyc.org. Applicants must put the title "ED Submission" in the subject line of the e mail to be considered.

Store Manager, Aesop Chelsea – a collaboration with The Paris Review

About Aesop
Aesop was established in Melbourne in 1987 with a quest to create a range of superlative products for the skin, hair and body. We are committed to using both plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients of the highest quality and proven efficacy – particularly those with the greatest anti-oxidant properties.

We value all human endeavours undertaken with intellectual rigour, vision, and a nod to the whimsical. Every Aesop product is made with the same attention to detail we believe should be applied to life at large, taking into consideration a diversity of needs as well as seasonal and environmental conditions. We advocate the use of our formulations as part of a balanced life that includes a healthy diet, sensible exercise, a moderate intake of red wine, and a regular dose of stimulating literature.

Our products are available in signature spaces and department stores in New York, Paris, Hong Kong and beyond, at Aesop Online, and at selected stockists internationally.

Description
Aesop seeks dedicated and enthusiastic individuals to manage our space in Chelsea, New York in collaboration with The Paris Review.

Aesop Chelsea reflects our deep passion for the written word and appreciation for the Paris Review . The ceiling is a floating sculpture crafted from original editions of the esteemed journal. The walls give a glimpse behind the scenes at the storied magazine, with letters, photographs, and other ephemera; and visitors to the store will find not only the current issue, but also a curated selection of Aesop’s best-loved back issues from across the decades.

The store also offers our complete range of skin, hair and body care products, distinguished by botanical and laboratory-generated ingredients of the highest quality.
In addition to speaking fluently about The Paris Review issues to customers, the Store Manager will be responsible for budgeting, store-specific marketing, and building the store’s client base.

The Ideal Candidate
The successful candidate will be a skilled professional, able to grace this role with diligence, passion, and élan. The candidate must have the confidence to sell products requiring specialist knowledge, and a willingness to embrace demonstration-based sales techniques and excellent merchandising abilities.

In order to successfully discuss the store’s literary offerings with clients, the successful candidate will combine extraordinary communication skills with a deep interest in literature, current affairs and contemporary arts.
