BEST is a nonprofit organization with a mission to provide individuals with the education, skills and training to excel in the hospitality industry and in their personal lives. We do this through a variety of services that include job-specific skills training programs and access to educational courses (ESOL, computers, skills certifications) supported by career and academic coaching. BEST’s partnerships include its primary funder and partner UNITE HERE Local 26, participating employers, public and private funders, and community organizations.
BEST is a workforce development nonprofit focused on the well-paid sector of Boston’s hospitality industry. Covid-19 upended the industry which presents an exciting and challenging opportunity for an Executive Director to set BEST on a new course. UNITE HERE Local 26 members continue to be BEST’s focus but given that many may never return to their jobs and others will be slow to be re-hired, BEST will need to adjust its programming and funding streams. We seek an experienced Executive Director to work in partnership with BEST’s leadership team and BEST’s Board of Directors to set strategic direction. BEST’s leadership team will continue to run BEST’s day-to day operations. The position will be subject to a six month “probationary period” following the Executive Director’s start date.
The Executive Director will be thoroughly committed to BEST Hospitality Training’s mission. All candidates should have proven leadership, coaching, and relationship management experience.
Specific requirements may include:
