Reports to: Lindsey Nurczyk, Managing Director of Program Foundations
Start date: November 2019
Location: Chicago, IL
Position Filled By: October 2019
Potential and talent are equally distributed, but opportunity is not. Nearly identical percentages of 10th graders from low- and high-income communities aspire to complete a postsecondary education. Only 22% of students from low-income communities earn a college degree, compared to 67% of their peers from high-income areas. At OneGoal, we believe that all students – not just those with the best grades or the most resources – have the ability and deserve the opportunity to earn a postsecondary degree. What’s more, we have developed a solution that works, and we believe this problem is solvable within our lifetime.
We are looking for individuals who will join OneGoal during this unique window in time:
As OneGoal-Chicago’s Senior Director of Secondary Partnerships, you are primarily responsible for leading and managing the Secondary Partnerships team to achieve strong outcomes. You will set vision and direction and manage team execution in order to successfully onboard and support our school partners and teachers to deeply understand the OneGoal program and to set the Chicago region up to meet scale, persistence and organizational health goals over the next 2-3 years while proactively and reactively addressing threats to partnership health.
Though the Senior Director of Secondary Partnerships is likely to see himself/herself/themselves in the following examples, these are not requirements. These examples are designed to help you determine if this opportunity aligns with your own passion and purpose.
You empower others to achieve results, and are an exceptional communicator.
You are self-aware and take personal responsibility for your actions and your team’s outcomes.
You are a systems level thinker, and believe using the data you have in front of you will lead to more strategic decisions.
You excitedly identify and confront challenges and opportunities. You see what’s possible.
You value working collaboratively and innovatively, and have a passion for building and sustaining critical relationships.
Guided by a clear set of core values and beliefs, you will join an impressive group of more than 150 OneGoal staff across the country who believe in the untapped potential within students. The OneGoal team challenges themselves and others to regularly ask, “Is there a better way?”
We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package* which includes medical, dental, vision, short-term disability, life insurance, retirement matching, paid parental leave, and more. We also offer a generous paid time off policy, including 20 paid vacation days, 13 holidays and 6 wellness days.
*OneGoal reserves the right to change benefits at anytime according to business need.
You believe in an inclusive and culturally competent society and the essence of our commitment to diversity and inclusion. We believe that in order to create the change we seek, each person we hire brings a remarkable and diverse set of experiences, skills and characteristics that individually and collectively, will contribute to the radical change needed to move us towards a more equitable and just nation.
