Outreach and Policy Manager
The state has set a goal that 70 percent of Vermonters will hold a postsecondary credential by the year 2025. It’s a big goal that requires a coordinated effort of educators, employers, government and non-profit leaders, and philanthropists. As a collective impact initiative, Advance Vermont fosters collaboration and spurs action to help reach that goal.
Advance Vermont seeks candidates skilled in stakeholder outreach, partnership building, and advocacy for the position of Outreach and Policy Manager.
The position will play a key role in bringing together a growing group of stakeholders from across the state to ensure more Vermonters have access to and complete post-high school education and training. This includes creating new organizational partnerships, leading outreach efforts to drive awareness and use of MyFutureVT (Advance Vermont’s new online hub for education and career resources), and developing and implementing advocacy campaigns.
The ideal candidate will be a skilled communicator with a passion for building partnerships to drive systems level change, possess a background in workforce and education policy, and enjoy thinking outside the box to find solutions to complex challenges.
The position comes with competitive pay and excellent benefits, including health, dental, retirement, and paid time off. Remote work is an option.
