Plymouth is one of the largest nonprofit housing providers in Washington state and works to eliminate homelessness and address its causes by preserving, developing and operating safe, quality, supportive housing and by providing adults experiencing homelessness with opportunities to stabilize and improve their lives. Operating from a solid financial position with an annual budget of $33M, significant reserves, a long-tenured senior leadership team and a deeply engaged board of directors, Plymouth is well positioned to continue their organizational growth trajectory and bring five new buildings online in the next five years.
The Deputy Director will join Plymouth Housing at a pivotal moment in the organization’s growth in a role that will have a significant influence. The Deputy position has been reimagined as part of a leadership restructuring that allows the Executive Director to prioritize housing development and fundraising, and the Deputy to assume responsibility for all other functions. The Deputy will direct leadership team members responsible for housing operations and services, administration, and finances.
Reporting to the Executive Director, and serving as a trusted advisor, the Deputy will lead collaboratively across departments and functions to ensure the systems, processes, people and resources are in place to optimize efficiency and accommodate Plymouth’s anticipated growth.

The Deputy Director calmly navigates in a dynamic and fast-paced, rapidly evolving environment. Decisive and positive, the Deputy is a creative problem solver who listens actively, synthesizes multiple view points and moves people to action. The ideal candidate is results-driven, unafraid to act, delegates, and hold others accountable. The successful candidate is detail oriented and a skilled multi-tasker who can keep the end goal in sight, yet possesses the agility and level-headedness required to manage unforeseen circumstances.
The successful candidate will have a minimum of 10 years of progressively responsible hands-on executive leadership roles.
