Expansion Manager: Based in Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, or Washington, D.C.
Starting Salary Range: $54,000 – $57,000 (per experience and location)
Who We Are:
A Moishe (pronounced moy-shuh) House or Pod is led by a group of volunteer community builders who open their doors to young adults to create spaces of connection, new friends, and engaging events, all at no cost to the participant. A Moishe House experience (e.g. a Passover seder, arts and crafts night, dance party, or virtual program) will look different in every one of the 140 Moishe Houses and Pods worldwide because the atmosphere, rituals, food, and location are planned and executed by the residents themselves.
Moishe House is searching for an Expansion Manager to drive and reach ambitious growth goals for opening new Moishe Houses and Pods in strategic cities throughout North America, with an anticipated start date of January 4, 2021. The Expansion Manager is responsible for identifying, recruiting, and vetting Jewish young adult leaders, and stewarding them towards becoming Moishe House residents who will form vibrant Jewish communities.
The Expansion Manager is a member of the Resident Support team and is responsible for opening more than 20 Houses and Pods annually. The Expansion Manager works to achieve expansion goals by leveraging existing Moishe House networks, providing oversight of local recruiters in target cities, and tapping into local networks to generate applicants. The Expansion Manager will inspire applicants to take on the opportunity of building a Jewish community for their peers.
All voices are needed at Moishe House. We want our team to reflect the breadth and diversity of the global Jewish community. We seek employees from diverse backgrounds and life experiences to join our staff team located in the United States, South America, Europe, and the Former Soviet Union.
