Edujob: VP of Talent @ Making Waves Foundation

Here’s an interesting, and new, edujob: Vice President of Talent at the Making Waves Foundation. From the JD:

MWF is a private operating foundation that supports Making Waves Academy (MWA), a 5-12 grade public charter school serving over 1,000 students in Richmond, CA, and the College & and Alumni Program (CAP), a college success program providing a critical bridge between college acceptance and graduation for over 600 college students.

We are among the first organizations to focus on both college access and success as a strategy to support underserved and underrepresented students – from 5th grade through early career. Together, MWA and CAP form a unique, holistic educational model that supports students academically, socially, emotionally, and financially on their journey to, through, and beyond college. For Making Waves, education is about helping students identify their life dream – and providing access to the learning, opportunities, and support they need to make it a reality…

…This is a compelling opportunity for a seasoned talent leader to assume a new, expanded “human resources” role, establish a best-in-class talent function and corresponding team, and help an ambitious, mission-driven organization truly become a best place to work by setting the vision and direction for a strong, inclusive, and people-focused culture. This leader will join MWF in the early stages of its 2020-30 strategic plan, and will therefore play a pivotal role in the next era of the Foundation’s organizational development. We see this position as an extraordinary opportunity to build on the way our entire organization thinks about and develops its people and, in turn, subsequently impacts the experience of all of the students and communities we serve and with whom we partner.

Therefore, we are seeking a strategic and dynamic leader to serve as our first Vice President of Talent (VPT). Reporting directly to our Chief Executive Officer (CEO), the VPT will set the vision and direction for attracting, engaging, rewarding, developing, and retaining MWF’s ~45 member team.
