The Washington Hop Commission – an agency of the State of Washington (commodity commission) representing hop growers – is seeking a full-time Events and Special Projects Coordinator.
Home to numerous multi-generational farms, the Yakima Valley currently produces approximately 75% of hops in the U.S., and about 30% of the world’s supply. Yakima has a rich and deep history in the hop industry with Washington consistently providing the world’s breweries with 60+ varieties of premium hops, thanks to experience, ideal growing conditions, and a commitment to quality & excellence.
Due to the relatively small size of the U.S. and global hop industry and Washington’s large stake, Commission employees are also involved in projects that are global in scope – including external-facing programs in marketing, promotion and statistics, along with internal-facing programs for grower support (research, regulatory and legislative, education, etc.). The successful candidate will work with people across the country and the globe in several facets, including hop production, brewing, hospitality, logistics, and numerous other industries. The potential for increased responsibility, growth and career development opportunities is considerable.
