Job Opportunities


Commonweal’s program work is expanding, and we are hiring a new accountant for the increased work. The new accountant will work closely with Commonweal’s accounting staff of four people, administrative team, and program staff. This position is for 24 hours per week or 60% FTE. The salary for this 60% position depends on experience, and the range is $26,832 annually ($21.50 per hour) to $37,440 ($30 per hour). Because the accounting work is paper based, at least two days need to be worked on site in Bolinas. Remote work is optional for the remainder. Find our more about the position on our job description.
