Open position at JobsFirstNYC: Director of Employer Partnerships and Engagement
JobsFirstNYC is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications from qualified candidates for a new staff position: Director of Employer Partnerships and Engagement.
The Director of Employer Partnerships and Engagement is a key, visible, leadership position within the organization. The suitable candidate will be responsible for identifying, cultivating, and engaging with employers, business leaders, and business intermediary organizations in a structural rather than transactional manner in order to accelerate and advance JobsFirstNYC’s major initiatives. The suitable candidate for this role will provide strategic, forward-looking/thinking cultivation and management of employer partnerships, constituent engagement, and program and practice management, with a dual focus on expanding employer engagement and ensuring the enhancement of business management practices over time. The overall performance standard for this position is the direct evidence of employer involvement – and the measurable impact of this involvement – in all of JobsFirstNYC’s programming and in service of its overarching institutional agenda. The optimal candidate will bring a rich array of resources and connections to the role, and will be able to readily leverage these, in addition to JobsFirstNYC’s strong connections, in order to build and strengthen a strong employer base for our work.
