City of Medford, Office of Energy and Environment (posted 3/18/2016)

A motivated individual is needed to help organize Medford’s annual Harvest Your Energy Festival. The Festival is held in early October each year, but organizing and planning begins now, in the early spring. It  is held at the McGlynn school and around the base of the Medford Wind Turbine, and typically has 34-40 vendors and sponsors and 400 attendees.


The coordinator works in Medford’s Office of Energy & Environment which is responsible for overseeing and implementing environmentally sound programs and policies in the City of Medford. The Coordinator will work with the Office’s Director to contact exhibitors, organize volunteers, maintain financial records and perform the tasks necessary to coordinate the festival. The Coordinator will also help wrap up the festival in October, with thank-you notes and debriefing as necessary. There is also the possibility for future internships with the Office as funding becomes available. Strong preference to someone who can start in the spring, commit to at least part time in the summer and stay through the fall.


Compensation of $10/hour is available for this position, through the City of Medford or Tufts Federal Work-Study. The coordinator works out of Medford’s Office of Energy & Environment and will help with general office tasks including fielding resident requests, as needed, while in the office. Located in Medford’s City Hall in Medford Square, we are a 15-20 minute walk or bus ride from Tufts campus or a 5 minute bike-ride. The Office is open Mon, Tue & Thurs 8:30-4:30, Wed 8:30-7:30pm and Fri 8:30-12:30. The position requires a minimum of 8 hours a week and there is the potential for full-time summer employment.


Interested applicants should email a copy of your resume, and letter of interest to Alicia Hunt, Director of Energy & Environment, at ahunt@medford.org.
