At a national level, PFJ focuses on recruiting and training Client Advocates, building relationships with Public Defenders, and ongoing coaching and support to Advocate teams and their offices. This work is critical to ensure that PFJ Advocates have the right skills, support, and community to fight on behalf of their clients. With PFJ’s rapid growth, we are expanding our national team and seeking a Regional Program Director to work directly with Advocates and our Public Defender partners in California. This person will be PFJ’s primary point of contact with a portfolio of partner offices and their Advocate teams, playing a crucial role in creating robust holistic services for PFJ clients. The Regional Director will also help drive our growth in California, seeking out and developing new partnerships and resources to support PFJ’s work.

Compensation and other perks
The total compensation package for this position is up to $90,000, inclusive of medical, vision and dental coverage if desired, and commensurate with experience. PFJ offers unlimited vacation and sick leave, 13 office holidays, and the ability to work remotely.
