Denver nonprofit Veterans Green Jobs, which aims to help veterans get training and find jobs in the ⿿green⿝ sector, said Monday it⿿s looking for a new CEO.

The group announced in early June that Brett KenCairn, who cofounded the agency in 2007 and was its CEO, was leaving to return to Community Energy Systems, a renewable energy company KenCairn helped to found in 2005.

Veterans Green Jobs officially launched in early 2008.

The nonprofit said it provides green jobs education, transition support, and career and enterprise development opportunities for military veterans, and operates programs in a variety of green jobs fields including home energy efficiency and weatherization, renewable energy, land conservation and urban forestry. The nonprofit said it has created more than 100 jobs in these areas.

Veterans Green Jobs said it will consider candidates from all backgrounds. Candidates could be either veterans of the U.S. armed forces, or possess a demonstrated understanding of the issues that veterans face when they return from active duty and are faced with reintegration into the civilian society, the group said.

The CEO will be based at the organizationâ¿¿s headquarters office in Denver. The position starts Oct. 1. Details about functions, responsibilities, desired qualifications and leadership attributes are available at
