ABOUT THE POSITION

Critical Exposure (CE) is seeking a full-time Operations Director to join our team in Washington, DC to steward people-centered practices through managing operations and supporting human resources (HR) and finance. We’re seeking a candidate who’s passionate about creating and implementing systems and supporting a healthy work culture in a team that develops the leadership and changemaking capacities of BIPOC youth in Washington, DC. 


This is a new position, with great potential for shaping operational strategy, systems, and processes, as CE is in its initial years following a founder transition. We need a candidate who can play a key role in helping us to achieve our dreams for organizational wellness and flow. In your first six months, here are some key projects you might decide to tackle:

If remote, there will be occasional travel to our Washington, DC office for specific meetings, retreats, and on-site operations needs.
