Job Title: Director,Training Partnership
Annual Pay: 80K to 98K
Location: Portland, OR
A Training Partnership dedicated to providing training for Oregon Homecare and Personal Support Workers is being established. We are seeking a Director of the Training Partnership to lead all aspects of this new, labor-management trust organization which will serve the current population of 33,000 workers as well as new caregivers entering the workforce.
The Training Partnership will be part of the family of employee benefit plans negotiated and sponsored by the State of Oregon and SEIU 503, the labor union for long-term care and public services workers in Oregon. If you want to make a difference in the lives of these workers and the seniors and people with disabilities who they support, we want to hear from you!
The Director of the Training Partnership will administer the provision of training for long-term care workers in Oregon. This position interacts with union leaders and a board of trustees that consists of union and employer members, and must have general understanding of unions, collective bargaining, and the value of workers organizing together. This leader will implement all aspects of the new Training Partnership and will apply service expertise to help advance long-term care jobs as good jobs and work to prevent the coming care crisis. Everyday, 10,000 Americans turn 65. Over the next decade, demand for long-term care workers will grow to more than 2 million jobs nationwide making home care America's “top job.” Yet, this “top job” is too often characterized by limited training and healthcare options, no retirement security, high on-the-job injury, and no career advancement opportunity. Leaders in Oregon have taken the first step of dedicating resources to this workforce. This new organization will serve the growing population of 33,000 workers throughout the state, in all needed languages, ensuring they have the adequate training needed to be successful from the first day of the job.
