TSEP seeks Economic Development Manager (Tiffin, Ohio)
The Tiffin-Seneca Economic Partnership (TSEP) is seeking someone to manage its industrial, commercial and residential development activities and join one of the most dynamic and successful local economic development organizations in the country. Created in 1983, TSEP is a 501c3 public-private partnership that acts as the economic development agent for Tiffin and rural Seneca County in northwest Ohio (population 55,000).
According to Site Selection magazine, Seneca County has ranked in the top ten among micropolitans nationally four of the past five years (top 1-2%), and last year TSEP won the OEDA Excellence in Innovation award. We have a team of seven, with staff covering economic, downtown, workforce, community, and rural development, as well as entrepreneurship and operations.
The specific title and competitive salary depend on the level of experience; no experience is required but is certainly welcome. The ideal candidate will be smart, hard-working, will get along with people and get things done.

At TSEP, employees have frequent one-to-one feedback and mentorship sessions with leadership and attend weekly team meetings. TSEP will also work with the new employee to develop a customized professional development plan.
People who work for TSEP are presented with exciting career opportunities both inside and outside the organization because team members benefit from our extensive network, exceptional reputation, and the high-profile nature of our work. At TSEP, we want our people to stay for as long as it is the best decision for them, and we have a structured internal progression system: Specialist, Coordinator, Manager, Director, and Vice President.
