 Now recruiting!

Join our fair trade family and help continue long-term sustainable employment to artisans around the world so they can send their children to school. We have open positions at the Ten Thousand Villages of Austin store on Burnet Road.

Managing Director

The Managing Director carries overall responsibility for daily store operations and recruiting, training and supervising of all employees, interns and volunteers. This position helps to create, develop and monitor a shared leadership plan. This individual also plays the central role in building staff morale and working in harmony, ensuring success of retail operations within budget and helping improve the livelihood of thousands of artisans worldwide. Furthermore, the Managing Director along with the Board of Directors is responsible for the future development and long-term sustainability of Ten Thousand Villages of Austin.

Board Members 

As you may already know, Ten Thousand Villages is in a unique position as a non-profit retailer. Often, the storefront aspect of our business practice hides the fact that we are mainly volunteer-run and are working hard to make a better life for our artisan partners! Some of our volunteers serve as board members with specific roles, vital to the organization. We are now looking for new board members in the fields of marketing, retail, law and fundraising. If interested, fill out this application and email us directly.
