Descrição

SUMMARY:

Across the state, Washington has more science, technology, engineering, math (STEM), and health care jobs than it can fill, yet our higher education system cannot keep up with the demand for skilled employees. The Washington State Opportunity Scholarship (WSOS) is a unique, public-private partnership designed to address our talent shortage. WSOS fuels the state’s economy by providing scholarships and a continuum of support services to high-potential students who are pursuing a graduate degree, bachelor’s degree, associate degree, certificate, or apprenticeship in a high-demand trade, health care, or STEM program in Washington state.  It is administered by the WSOS Foundation (WSOSF).


The Corporate Partnerships Manager identifies and develops key relationships with industry partners across STEM, trade and health care organizations in Washington. The top priorities for this role include: (1) cultivating industry contacts as donors including designing and leading solicitations; (2) leading mentor and other volunteer recruitment, support and retention; and (3) securing corporate partner commitments to offer priority access to work-like experiences (such as internships or shadowships) for Opportunity Scholars; and (4) managing and building a sponsor portfolio for WSOS’ annual fundraising event, Opportunity Talks, directly contributing to revenue targets. To successfully complete the priorities above, the Corporate Partnerships Manager is an effective front-line fundraiser and relationship manager who inspires volunteers, donors, and corporate partners to become part of an organization’s mission. This position reports to the Associate Director of Corporate and Foundation Giving and is a member of the development team.


The main WSOS office is in Seattle’s Mt. Baker neighborhood. Most staff work on a hybrid schedule, generally working from the WSOS office two days per week. The workplace culture at WSOS is fast-paced, innovative, solutions-centric, and equity-focused. All are encouraged to think creatively, voice their opinions, try new things, fail quickly, evaluate, iterate, and try again. We spend time investing in relationships, and we acknowledge the humanity of our Scholars, staff, and partners. We intentionally build our values into everything we do at WSOS. We encourage you to visit our Careers page to learn more about our team culture and the values that guide our work.
