Director Position Description
Sacred Spaces’ Consulting Department is growing, and we are beginning to fill new Director positions for each of our primary practice areas:
Directors will report to the Vice President of Consulting and will join a small, but strong team currently in place. Directors will work with the VP to increase the capacity and scope of the consulting services and technical assistance offered to Jewish organizations in their respective practice areas. Directors are responsible for overseeing and managing their team through the completion of all related aspects of service delivery to client organizations, including scoping client engagements, designing client projects and proposal writing, fulfilling activities outlined in client agreements (see services below), and monitoring and incorporating feedback. Directors will also be expected to be thought leaders, both within and outside of Sacred Spaces, by remaining current on research and policy issues that can impact and shape our service delivery.
Consulting services include:
Directors will work with the VP of Consulting, as well as other staff members and consultants, to identify areas of opportunity and gaps for Sacred Spaces in client service delivery and to help monitor project outcomes. While Directors will mainly focus on their subject areas, they will also be available to work across subject areas and foster a collegial, growth-oriented environment.
Directors lead a team of staff and consultants to support the delivery of high-quality client services. This includes:
Directors should have a proven history of success delivering technical assistance, consulting services, or leading large-scale projects, and be considered by other professionals in their field as an expert and leader. The following requirements are representative of the knowledge, skill, and/or ability required.

This position could also be an opportunity for someone with experience in one of these areas to build skills in another area. If you believe you are poised to excel at this important work, we encourage you to apply!
