Director of Operations

Girls at Work

For 20 years, Girls at Work has been dedicated to empowering inner city girls. Far too many girls buy into the messages in our society that destroy their self image. While we can help build their self esteem with words, it is hard to argue that teaching young girls to use power tools is not a game changer that silences those messages from our society and leaves them feeling overly powerful and competent. We have been fortunate to watch thousands of young girls build their self esteem in our shops and recognize they are capable of so much more.

It's an exciting time to join the team at Girls at Work, Inc. With our newly renovated Millyard location and our powerful team, we are well positioned for some much anticipated growth. Join a team of skilled, dedicated and passionate individuals (board, staff and volunteers) as we navigate the exciting waters of growth. Become part of our journey as we ramp up our much needed initiative to empower inner city girls and expand our reach and our mission. 

Reporting to the Executive Director (ED), the Director of Operations will oversee operations, finances (accounts receivable and payable), calendar management/scheduling, and human resources activities for Girls at Work, Inc. as it continues to grow. A new position in the organization, the Director of Operations will have the opportunity to build out the operations functions to assure smooth operations and long term sustainability of Girls at Work, Inc.

The role is full time, in office position located at 200 Bedford St, Manchester, NH.  Annual Salary $60,000 - $65,000.  Girls at Work supports a full time, 4 day a week work schedule.  Excellent benefits and vacation package included.
