When employers post their jobs to the Nonprofit Job Seeker, they have the option to make them "featured jobs." This is done to give the job the highest possible exposure. We had one of those jobs posted today from The Lathrop Community Group, Inc.
Located in Easthampton, MA, this nonprofit is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) that provides senior citizens with affordable housing. They are currently seeking a Director of Facilities to help keep their buildings in excellent condition. Duties would include developing, planning, organizing, and directing the functions of the maintenance department. The position will also involve the oversight of the Housekeeping, Security, and Transportation departments, so you should be comfortable juggling many tasks at once.
As for requirements, it is recommended that you have a strong background in the healthcare field. You should also be very good with technology and have strong leadership skills. Here are some other requirements.
- A Bachelor's (Master's preferred) degree in Engineering, Management, or another related field.
- At least five years of proven experience managing at a large facility (preferably a healthcare-related environment).
