POSITION: Manager of Talent Acquisition
REPORTS TO: Managing Director of Talent
POSITION TYPE: 12-Month Employee
COMPENSATION: Competitive candidates will earn $65,000 - $70,000
Across the nation, only half of all students from low-income communities graduate from high school and only 10% earn a college degree. Even though 85% of our students are economically disadvantaged, YES Prep provides evidence that different outcomes are possible. Eighty-seven (87%) of YES Prep alumni matriculate to college within one year and alumni like Eddie Zapata are earning their college degrees at five times the rate of their peers with similar socioeconomic backgrounds. How do we do this? Each of YES Prep’s 19 campuses serves 6th-12th graders like Monique Bowie. Students typically enter YES Prep one or more grade levels behind, but quickly find themselves on a different life trajectory. This is a result of transformative relationships with teachers and leaders, and access to excellent educational opportunities.
As the first minority-majority city, Houston’s schools cannot keep up with demand from students like Eddie and Monique. Houston is the 4th largest city (on track to become the 3rd), and this booming population translates into 2,000 families on YES Prep’s waitlist. YES Prep’s student enrollment is estimated to grow 31% between now and 2023 (from just over 13,000 students currently to 17,000).
YES Prep needs a dynamic and diverse Manager of Talent Acquisition to make our mission a reality. As a YES Prep employee, you will achieve jaw-dropping results, create pathways to opportunity for our students, build transformative relationships, and eliminate educational inequities to advance social justice. To put it simply, you will play an integral role in leading the talent acquisition strategy and team members to attract and select high quality teacher and leader candidates in service of supporting organizational growth with a focus on providing students an exceptional education. The Houston landscape is a hotbed of talent and competition and we want someone who will help YES recruit and select the best talent for the students we serve.
