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.

A Stronger Workforce through Understanding Mental Health and Addiction

About three months ago, we launched our Recovery Within Reach campaign, a first-of-its-kind effort to educate Ohioans about the financial effects of opioid addiction — and to connect them with treatment options close to their homes.

Our goal is to create a new way of talking about addiction, one in which people consider the facts and practical realities of how substance use disorder affects their lives. Not long ago, Gov. Mike DeWine challenged all of us in state government to think of ways we could help Ohioans navigate the opioid crisis that has affected our state for so long. For us, that meant considering the financial effects of addiction — and providing tools and trainings to help Ohioans and financial advisers talk about addiction and access care.
