Reporting to the Associate Executive Director, the Senior Level Job Developer will be a seasoned relationship manager/account developer with the ability to work both with program participants and most importantly, hiring managers. Program participants will predominantly be entry level and connected to social service programs, where they will have received basic job readiness and assistance overcoming barriers to complement ACI’s certification and skills training. The Job Developer will interact with employers engaged in building restoration and construction to understand demand for ACI graduates, market ACI and its graduates as a business solution, establish and develop ongoing placement relationships, and place/replace the graduates of ACI programs in gainful employment, achieving an ongoing placement rate of 80% or greater. 


The position will call on the Senior Job Developer to interact with and partner with members of ACI’s Board to develop and harness their networks, so a strong ability to partner is required. Additionally, the position will be the only ACI employee directly addressing placement so the ability work independently is necessary. Lastly, many hiring managers in the field are Spanish speaking, so conversational Spanish language skills are strongly preferred.


Responsibilities:

Specifically, the Job Developer will:

  • Conduct in person, telephone, and event based outreach and networking to employers in our sector (and in construction in general) to build awareness and provide for hiring;
  • Establish and nurture ongoing employer relationships to insure hiring of ACI graduates and the understanding of ACI as a go to employer resource;
  • Meet with clients 1-on-1 during and after the training program to prepare them for interview with “BD identified employers” and employers in general (providing feedback, practice mock interviews, and resume adjustments as necessary);
  • Engage in job matching to refer the right candidates to the right employers based on location, experience, disposition and workplace characteristics and follow up on placements to gauge satisfaction, address any problems, and allow for program improvement;
  • Place and replace “job ready” candidates from ACI’s multiple training cycles and offerings in employment using direct action, client coaching for self-placement, and partnership with job developers at referring entities;
  • Coordinate Job Fairs at the end of training cycles – either generally or for specific high volume employers;
  • Interact with social service partners to insure additional placement support as necessary;
  • Maintain ongoing client contact until job placement; and
  • Document employer relationship development activities and client hiring information such as job start, employer name, and salary in ACI data systems.

Qualifications:

1.      Demonstrated experience in the Construction Industry, within the area of business development and/or customer relations or equivalent experience;

2.      Demonstrated track record of job placement success;

3.      General understanding of construction training, certifications, job titles and similar;

4.      Strong sales or similar experience preferred;

5.      BA or Associates Preferred;

6.      Salesforce (or other database) Experience preferred;

7.      Spanish language competence strongly preferred
