Project details

What we need
  • A clear job description for an open position

Additional details

Additional Details

We are seeking a Business Manager (primarily HR/Accounting responsibilities) for our theatre company, which also has programs in schools and prisons. We have already posted the job description (a few weeks ago), but have received only three responses and would like to increase the pool of candidates. I would like to move quickly to replace the outgoing employee!

What we have in place
  • We currently have the current job description and designated point person, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an enthusiastic learner, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $1,765 , allowing us to better support the full community of artists we serve, both creatively and financially.

Starting with this important position, which is currently open, we would like to better understand how to reach strong candidates for this exceptional, idiosyncratic, non-profit (so, below-market pay) work! It is important to us that our staff is representative of the larger Bay Area community, and that we communicate throughout the process our openness to people with non-traditional, non-linear professional backgrounds.
