Our workforce development and financial coaching program has a proven track record of helping people who are unemployed and under-employed make positive changes in their own lives.

We seek a director who can support our program so that it continues to meet its established goals, and also can develop a vision to grow our services to meet future demands.

If you’re that person, we encourage you to apply.

The director of the workforce development and financial coaching program must balance short-term needs with long-term planning. A successful applicant will have experience developing a budget each year and sticking to it; and they will be comfortable using data analysis tools to add value, generate ideas and prepare monthly, quarterly and yearly progress reports.

The director must have a healthy respect for diversity and enjoy meeting with clients who come from all walks of life and socio-economic backgrounds, including people who are re-entering the workforce.
