We’re looking for As Needed Site Supervisors to help us live our mission to prepare more than 6,000 people with recent criminal convictions for securing employment each year.
As Needed Site Supervisors step in to support, supervise, and train work crews of 5-10 participants on days in which full-time Site Supervisors are unable to come in due to vacation, illness, or other personal reasons. Site Supervisors, whether full-time or per diem, create uplifting work environments for our participants that ensure their safety, provide on-the-job supervision and coaching, encourage and empower team members to seize each opportunity for building knowledge and skill sets, and foster engagement and accountability across the crew.
Given this position’s as needed nature, it’s a perfect role for retirees hoping to continue to have impact within their communities, individuals with very flexible schedules, or individuals who are self-employed and are looking for an opportunity here and there to connect with others. It’s anticipated that an As Needed Site Supervisor will participate in one week of paid training and work around 10-20 days per year, with potential for additional days.
This role is perfect for you if you enjoy a non-traditional workspace, like being on your feet and moving around, and love being outdoors.
Why this work is important….
Our social enterprise work crews are the centerpiece of CEO’s model. Every participant works as part of a transitional work crew to gain hands-on experience and income while concurrently working with CEO’s vocational staff to identify and secure long-term employment. CEO operates 70+ work crews across our national network that provide valuable labor and maintenance services to our customers -- predominantly public sector agencies. The income generated from these crews supports nearly half of the organization’s overall operating budget.
Site Supervisors have the opportunity to make a real impact on our participants’ lives.
Who We Are
The Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO) provides employment services to people with recent criminal convictions. Across the United States, over 6,000 people participate in CEO each year, transitioning to employment that supports themselves, their families, and their communities.
What began as a demonstration project of the Vera Institute of Justice in the 1970s to address employment barriers facing the formerly incarcerated following release in New York City has grown into the leading reentry employment organization in the country, where over 25,000 formerly incarcerated individuals have secured full-time employment since 1996. Since 2009, CEO has gained support to expand its programs through government, nonprofit, and private organizations including the Federal Social Innovation Fund, the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, Robin Hood Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation. In 2016, CEO embarked on a 5-year strategic plan to grow to serve 9,000 participants annually.
