After a successful first year, the Boston Staffing Alliance seeks a new entrepreneurial manager to grow this unique community based temp agency. BSA focuses on temporary and temporary-to-permanent placement of workers with barriers to employment. In particular, BSA focuses on those who are excluded from the workforce due to a criminal record in the state’s Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) system.
Capacity Building: Learning and developing staffing industry matching software; developing public relations and sales strategy; developing a quality control system to ensure that both employee and customer needs are being met; refining financial cost and revenue projections; developing an employee support strategy so that employees are able to function to their fullest potential.
Ongoing: Maintaining financial systems and employee payroll process; selling new placement contracts and developing employer relations; strategic planning, marketing and sales, budgeting, grant writing and fundraising, fiscal control and reporting, maintenance and administration of operations systems, supervision of at least one full time administrative staff, and coordination of training for members.
The ideal candidate will have management experience in both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors. Previous work experience in a selling environment is also a plus. Interested candidates must have demonstrated entrepreneurial drive. While previous experience starting up a business would be ideal, entrepreneurial drive might also be manifested in having conceived, developed, and implemented a new service within a not-for-profit organization. In addition to backgrounds in business and sales, relevant experiences include Human Resources, non-profit job development and placement, community organizing, business consultation, financial administration and marketing.
