Over the last 45 years, NETO has delivered services to residents of the Caledonia, Essex and Orleans Counties. Through our Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), we’ve helped over 10,000 households save money, improve health and safety, reduce energy consumption, and greenhouse gases by improving the energy efficiency of their homes.


NETO is a private, non-profit with an administrative office in Newport, a second location in St. Johnsbury, 35 employees, and $ 7 million in annual operating revenues. The organization is seeking a new Executive Director to guide our team into the future as Weatherization is expanding. Our dedicated Assistant Executive Director, Projects Manager, and Fiscal Director are co-managing the organization on an interim basis. The incumbent will divide their time between the duties of Executive Director and Director of Weatherization.


The Executive Director serves as the chief administrator of both the organization as a whole and the weatherization program itself, providing leadership, and directing and overseeing all functions of NETO in accordance with goals and policies set by the Board of Directors. Direct reports include the Assistant Director, Fiscal Director, Area Coordinators, and Project Managers. This individual is responsible for the strategic and ongoing planning, implementation, day-to-day management, supervision, grants, reporting, recordkeeping, monitoring, and evaluation of all NETO weatherization services and operations, including: the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), Emergency Heating System Grant Program (EHSGP), Efficiency Vermont (EVT) electric efficiency programs, and other potential Grants.


The Executive Director divides their time between the main office in Newport, the satellite office in St. Johnsbury, visiting project sites in the tri-county service area, and attending meetings at the other WAP Agencies, and the public throughout Vermont.


An offer of employment will be conditioned upon acceptable credit and criminal background checks.


NETO will offer a compensation package that includes a base salary within the hiring range ($90,000-$125,000), and benefits that include generous paid time off; 100% paid health insurance; 100% paid dental, vision, and life insurance; a Flexible Spending Account; contributions to a Health Reimbursement Account; and a retirement plan.
