Imagine a city where every student, regardless of language and cultural differences, receives a quality education and feels safe and included.
The Seattle Mayor and City Council are striving to bring us to the top of the list of cities known for positive change, innovation, and sound financial management. The Department of Education and Early Learning (DEEL) supports this effort to improve the lives of Seattle families by helping children enter kindergarten prepared to succeed, providing support for student academic achievement, and making sure students graduate from high school prepared for college or career. The department strives to embed the City's Race and Social Justice Initiative into its education objectives and seeks staff that value the importance of working together as a government and community to eliminate racial disparities and achieve racial equity.
To support the mission of this department, we have an opportunity to bring in a Finance & Operations Director to direct and oversee all of DEEL's financial activities. In this role, you will work with the Director, Deputy Director, and the Early Learning and K-12 Division Directors as a member of DEEL's Executive Team. Reporting to the Director, you will provide leadership to the Finance and Operations division, which consists of finance and budget, contracting, accounting, and administrative support for the entire department, particularly in human resources administration. In addition, you will manage 4 direct reports, which include the finance manager, senior finance analyst, contracting manager, and an administrative staff assistant, along with 9 additional full-time employees in the 2018 budget. In 2019, the accounting unit is expected to transfer to your management.
