ABOUT COLLEGE ADVISING CORPS
With a bold goal of enrolling 1 million low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented high school students in college by 2025, we are excited to have you join our team!
As the largest college access nonprofit in the country, College Advising Corps (CAC) is devoted to giving every student the opportunities that college offers. We focus on college enrollment and completion among low-income, first-generation-college and underrepresented high school students by delivering personalized, knowledgeable guidance on college admission, financial aid, and enrollment.
We do this through two innovative program models:
Advisers become part of their school community, collaborate with teachers and administrators, devise creative approaches to reach and connect with students and families, and play an integral role in changing the lives of the students they serve.
The Chief of Staff (CoS) will play a critical role in our organization by providing strategic counsel on key initiatives to the CEO and other senior leaders within CAC. The CoS will assume the responsibility for creating and implementing detailed project plans and associated project deliverables throughout all phases of key projects including planning, executing and monitoring. The CoS will serve as a liaison with strategic partners and will be responsible for creating and maintaining collaborative relationships with CAC staff members, the Board of Directors, and external constituents. The CoS will work closely with the CEO on communications. The CoS will supervise the Executive Assistant to the CEO in order to ensure alignment on all initiatives related to the CEO.
REQUIRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
The Chief of Staff will be a highly motivated self-starter with a bachelor’s degree and a minimum of 7-8 years of experience providing project management, communications and organizational development logistical to a CEO.
CULTURE, COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS
We aspire to build one of the most innovative, diverse, and inclusive teams in the country. At CAC, we believe that our work is not just a vocation; it is a mission. We are changing the life trajectories of young people all over the country and building the educational foundation for democracy in the 21st century. We invest in this mission by investing in our team. CAC offers a salary and benefits package competitive with other organizations of our size, which includes full health and dental coverage, a matching 401(k) plan, and four weeks of vacation plus sick leave and national holidays
