Senior Manager of Community Partnerships and Outreach

Girls Who Code - New York - Full time


The Senior Manager of Community Partnerships & Outreach partners with other Senior Managers and the Director of Community Partnerships & Outreach on strategic planning, scaling programs, and team management. Senior Managers lead the development and execution of the outreach strategy for a portfolio, along with overseeing the outreach strategy executed by Managers and Associates. Each Senior Manager supervises a small cohort of Managers and Associates, and works closely with other Senior Managers and the Director of Community Partnerships & Outreach to lead the team toward meeting and exceeding goals. An important aspect of the Senior Manager role is to provide coaching, mentorship, direction to their cohort of Managers and Associates, while their cohort focuses on recruiting community partners and broad outreach to launch Girls Who Code Clubs, driving the student recruitment process for Girls Who Code’s Summer Immersion Program, and managing their own cohort of Regional Partnerships Coordinators. As we expand to 10,000 Girls Who Code Clubs in 2020, we are thrilled to grow our Community Partnerships & Outreach team and we are hiring an additional Senior Manager to join our team.

The successful candidate has demonstrated experience cultivating and sustaining high-impact community and school partnerships, leading a team towards aggressive goals, and/or experience in large-scale outreach, admissions, talent recruitment, account management, business development, or community organizing. Reporting directly to the Director of Community Partnerships & Outreach, they thrive in fast-paced, collaborative, and data-driven environments. They also have a passion for developing team members, building strategy, and scaling programs.
