Hanford Challenge Seeks Deputy Director
We are seeking an operationally-savvy leader to direct our finances and operations. In Hanford Challenge’s 12th year, we are at a critical juncture working to increase the scope and scale of our efforts with a shift from stable to sustainable funding. As part of Hanford Challenge’s leadership team, the Deputy Director will work closely with the Executive Director, balancing high-level responsibilities with operational tasks to ensure compliance and steady progress on financial and organizational goals.
Hanford Challenge is an 11-year-old, small but mighty advocacy organization focused on bringing accountability, transparency, and safety to the cleanup of the Hanford nuclear site in southeastern Washington State.
Located in southeastern Washington State, Hanford is the most contaminated and dangerous nuclear site in America. Under strict military secrecy, Hanford produced plutonium for atomic weapons for over 45 years, showering Northwest communities with radiation and creating a nuclear nightmare that will take over 75 years to clean up.
Our mission is to create a future for the Hanford nuclear site that secures human health and safety, advances accountability, and promotes a sustainable environmental legacy. We value integrity, collaboration, innovation, empowerment and effectiveness.
We serve Hanford workers, the public, and the environment. We advocate for Hanford workers, expose nuclear safety threats, and promote reforms to protect human health, safety, and the environment.
We are the only independent organization – not connected to the federal government, contractors, or Washington State – that provides Hanford workers with confidential advice, recommendations for resolving concerns, and when necessary legal representation at no cost for issues ranging from retaliation, harassment, and work-related injury.
