Part-time Executive Director:

Hello! Salsa Des Moines is currently seeking a talented, enthusiastic person to take ownership of our part-time Executive Director role here at our cultural dance & education nonprofit organization.

This is a relatively well-paying Contractor position at 10 hours a week.

This position would be ideal for someone who is looking to work part-time and use their talents & skills—who has past experience in either Sales & marketing, project management, or Event marketing. Also past experience in nonprofit administration would be great (but not necessary).

This is a contractor position—so you have to bring your own expertise to this and enjoy executing. We have a small, dedicated board and a wonderful supportive community. Salsa Des Moines has been a vibrant nonprofit organization for over 10 years here in Des Moines.

We recently completed a strategic planning process with assistance from the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines. And we’ve had a talented Interim Executive Director in charge of the organization the past 6 months, so the organization’s systems and bookkeeping are all up-to-date and working well.

Our Interim ED is getting ready to become a new first-time mom…and we’re looking for someone to take over and enjoy taking ownership of this unique and satisfying position. 

Must love dance! You don’t have to be a Salsa dancer—but previous or current love of dance (and openness to learning more about Latin dance if it’s new to you) is important—because our organization does provide community classes, outreach classes & special events to share the many benefits of dancing! Plus we love championing different aspects of Latin culture, art, food & music, as well.
