In California, the Franciscan friars of St. Barbara Province based in Oakland are looking to hire a development associate to help assist in carrying out the implementation of fund development activities for the entire province. The successful candidate will possess excellent written and verbal communication skills, attention to detail and the ability to multi-task.
