Reporting to the CEO, as our new Director of Finance & Facilities, you will be responsible for all finance functions, asset management, technology, and facilities of the overall organization. 

While no two days will ever be alike in this pivotal role, your more typical responsibilities will be:

  • Acting as a member of the senior management team and providing feedback and counsel based on the needs of the organization's finance and facilities.

As our ideal candidate, you'll be a highly motivated and results-oriented individual that is capable of thinking outside of the box in order to promote growth and continuous improvement. Your strong communication skills and aptitude for stakeholder management will combine with your empathetic nature allowing you to succeed while you work towards many competing demands and deadlines. As a leader within our organization, you'll lead by example with a passion for the work that you do, a desire to continuously learn and grow, and the ability to build quality relationships with the community, your colleagues, your direct reports, and the greater team.  

Finally, individuals that are motivated by the desire to improve the lives of others will excel in this role.
