3. Nature of Position
Since 2014, TSEP has more than tripled the number of development initiatives (135) and active volunteers (140); and it has more than doubled its public contracts, private financial support, and members. The organization has grown to encompass five external facing leaders, each responsible for one or more development area, and it is currently operating with no dedicated administrative support. The membership and board have determined that keeping both the quantity and quality of activities pursued by the organization is a priority, and to maintain the pace and volume of work sustainably, TSEP needs to add a talented Operations Manager to manage internal operations and support the team and their many important activities, projects, initiatives, and committees.
Please note that the organization does not require a candidate to have direct experience, formal education, or current proficiency in each of the following areas of responsibility, but it does want someone with skills to “hit the ground running,” so to speak, along with a strong desire and ability to learn and learn quickly. Quality experience is a huge help in succeeding in this challenging position, but given that in most cases people come to work for economic development organizations from other backgrounds, we encourage people to apply if they think they have the combination of temperament, interest, desire, work ethic, intelligence, organizational and communication skills needed, regardless of their origin or how long they have been used. As a small organization, there are no formal training programs or manuals, so TSEP is looking for someone who is willing and able to independently research, ask questions, and successfully develop relationships internally and externally to obtain and apply the information to support the organization, the team, and the job. In other words, this is a job for someone to “grow” into.

I first met Dan in the fall of 2016. I had moved to Central Ohio over the late holiday season in 2015 to begin serving as the new Director of GROW Licking County CIC, Dan’s former role. I was immediately struck by many in the community who worried that I would “not be enough,” that the “shoes were too big,” and that “Dan was larger than life.” And they were right.read more
