Job Summary

About Enterprise

Enterprise is a national nonprofit that develops programs, advocates for policies, and delivers the capital to create and preserve affordable housing for low income families. Our Northern California office is based in San Francisco. The Northern California office seeks solutions to a range of the most relevant and pressing affordable housing issues facing California, especially the Bay Area. We foster cross-sector partnerships that include nonprofit developers, government agencies, and advocacy organizations and work in collaboration to advocate for policy and create systems change that result in greater racial and economic equity in the Bay Area.

In California, Enterprise’s policy priorities are to:

  • Promote racial equity, economic opportunity, and resident power for people historically excluded from shaping the decisions that affect their lives and those of their communities;

  • Prevent low-income Californians from experiencing homelessness, displacement, housing instability, and poor-quality housing conditions, particularly renters;

  • Expand resources and eliminate barriers for the production and preservation of housing that low- and moderate-income Californians can afford; and

  • Advance inclusive and equitable development that promotes housing affordability, climate and community resilience, economic opportunity, and racial equity,

Interns at Enterprise Northern California play an integral role in developing and advancing program and/or policy work alongside our experienced staff. You will gain exposure to our region and/or state’s affordable housing challenges and key stakeholders. Interns will also experience working from the perspective of an intermediary. Our work is frequently characterized as advancing solutions through activities such as providing technical assistance, convening practitioners and advocacy coalitions, and collaborating with cross-sector partners including but not limited to public agencies, community-based organizations, affordable housing developers, researchers and academics, and funders.

Enterprise is committed to building and maintaining a diverse staff and a safe, healthy, and welcoming work community. Our team believes high-performing teams include people from different backgrounds and experiences who can challenge each other’s assumptions with fresh perspectives. To that end, we are actively seeking a diverse pool of applicants, including those from underrepresented groups and people with lived experience of housing insecurity.

Founded in 2004, Brilliant Corners provides innovative housing and housing-related services to those transitioning from or at risk of homelessness or institutionalization. We develop, own, and manage multi-family supportive housing and licensed residential care homes. Additionally, we implement a broad array of scattered-site, one-on-one supportive housing, and clinical case management programs through partnerships with developmental services, homeless services, veteran services, and health care sectors.

In short, we do good work.

We have offices statewide with a staff of passionate people. While we are growing rapidly, we are also selective: We’re seeking inspired, talented people who want to be effecting profound change and who have fun doing it.   

The Policy Manager leads the development of policies and procedures for the Flexible Housing Subsidy Pool (FHSP). Will work within the FHSP Management Team to draft policies and project manage the policy development process. Will participate in high-level program design and policy meetings both internally and externally. Will regularly collaborate with Brilliant Corners’ legal counsel and work under the direction of the FHSP Program Director. The Policy Manager supports the Brilliant Corners Housing Services Team to further develop the “Brilliant Corners approach.” Given the opportunity for professional growth, the position is ideal for a self-starter who is interested in program design and committed to social justice.

You bring your “A” game to work. You inspire a culture of excellence and take pride in doing “whatever it takes” for our clients and partners. You believe that it’s a reflection on you, your work, and the organization you represent.

You’re a system thinker. You can see the big picture and simultaneously create the many building blocks to make that vision a reality. If it’s possible to be “visionary” and “detail-oriented” at the same time, that’s you. One might say that you have a special skill at quietly organizing chaos.

You make sure things are done—and that they are done well and on time. You understand that accomplishing goals takes a team and that effective teams require thoughtful collaboration, planning, communication, calendaring, and a little bit of cajoling. You’re known as the team member who keeps the trains running on time. You excel at project management.

You have a way with words. Your communication is clear and professional—both when it comes to writing and when it comes to engaging with high-level stakeholders. You articulate complex ideas in ways that anyone can understand.

You thrive in an entrepreneurial environment. You’re resourceful and at ease with ambiguity and rapid change. You possess a positive, can-do attitude, and are adept at identifying creative solutions that turn challenges into opportunities. You can handle many important responsibilities at once, and you’re rigorous about prioritization.

  • Bachelor’s degree preferred, but relevant professional experience can be substituted.

  • Superior writing skills with a preference for technical writing expertise (i.e. creation of policies and procedures and/or similar documents).

  • Excellent organizational, project management, and planning skills.

  • Ability to take direction and feedback from multiple stakeholders and exercise good judgment to move work forward.

  • Exceptionally good at collecting large amounts of information and synthesizing it into a cohesive, concise work product.

  • Can manage multiple deadlines efficiently and simultaneously.

  • Solid team leader who can work well collaboratively on projects and under pressure.

  • High-degree of professionalism with internal and external stakeholders; able to engage with leadership from funding agencies

  • Ability to refine systems and processes with an eye towards the “big picture.”

  • Basic computer knowledge, MS Outlook, Word, PowerPoint and Excel required.

  • Ability to utilize critical thinking skills in decision-making and good independent judgment.

  1. Writing sample of your choosing. Note that you can submit a sample of any length, but we will only read the first 3 pages. Technical writing samples preferred, but any formal/professional sample is fine.

  2. Narrative describing your project management approach. For example, how would you approach coordinating and writing FHSP policies and procedures? Your response can be up to one page using 12-point font, single-spaced.
