Deputy Director

  • Waldron & Company
  • Seattle, WA, United States
Full Time Nonprofit

Job Description

The Organization

 Founded in 1980, Plymouth Housing Group (PHG) works to eliminate homelessness and address its causes by preserving, developing and operating safe, quality, supportive housing and by providing homeless adults with opportunities to stabilize and improve their lives.

 PHG’s dedicated staff and leadership bring a deep sense of commitment and compassion to their work serving the chronically homeless. These residents are among the most vulnerable members of Seattle’s community, having failed in housing previously or lacking access to decent affordable housing due to poverty, disabilities or lack of community support.

The Opportunity

 The Deputy Director will join Plymouth 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.

 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. Externally, the Deputy will serve as an important public voice for Plymouth, working closely with community partners and funders to advocate on behalf of Seattle’s homeless and the organizations that serve them.

Desired Qualifications

 The successful candidate will have a minimum of 10 years of progressively responsible hands-on executive leadership roles. Experience managing high performing teams, organizational change and growth is required. S/he should be skilled in organizational development and will have talent leading, motivating and empowering senior leaders.

 Diverse leadership experience is valued and may include the public, nonprofit or private sector or some combination thereof. A bachelor’s degree is required and an advanced degree is an asset.
