About Opportunity@Work:

Opportunity@Work is a nonprofit social enterprise with a mission to expand access to career opportunities so that all Americans can work, learn, and earn to their full potential in a dynamic economy.

 

Opportunity@Work helps motivated individuals access and finance skills training for the tech economy. At the same time, Opportunity@Work is ​

breaking down systemic barriers ​facing nontraditional job seekers, working with employers to ​“screen in” ​candidates based on skills rather than screen out individuals lacking a certain educational pedigree.

 

About the Role:

The Talent Financing team at Opportunity@Work is responsible for the design, operationalization, and evolution of the financing solution that is aimed at making training financially accessible for low-income Americans. As a key member, the Talent Financing Senior Analyst will be instrumental in performing due diligence of training outcomes and developing the financial models needed to drive our strategic decision-making. Success in the role will be measured by gathering the needed data, quantitatively analyzing the information, and making sound recommendations that guide leadership decision-making that results in mission-oriented financial access for individuals and satisfied partners. This role will report to the Talent Financing Manager.

 

Your responsibilities:

  • Build and upgrade financial models based on program design decisions, outcomes data, and funder profiles
  • Source and analyze public and partner-provided data needed to design core elements of the talent financing solution
  • Scope new training, funding, and outreach partners from initial research to due diligence of a prospect
  • Codify the learnings and long-term growth objectives
  • Develop workplans and coordinate with external stakeholders to drive discrete, significant aspects of large-scale programs or serve as the primary point of contact for pilot programs

 

About you:

  • Data-oriented: are a master at leveraging Excel to cleanse data sets, draw patterns in data using probability and statistics, and use appropriate data to update existing mathematical models to support decision making
  • Analytical: break down complex problems into its parts and apply logical reasoning skills to critically review own work for underlying assumptions
  • Entrepreneurial: thrive in a fast-paced environment and take initiative to push forward even when there is ambiguity and risk
  • Operational: translate ideas into processes to drive execution and manage multiple tasks across multiple parties, changing deadlines, and different volumes
