The Opportunity

CEO is hiring a Senior Site Supervisor who will be responsible for overseeing and ensuring success of the daily operations of 6-10 of CEO’s transitional work crews/sites (the centerpiece of CEO’s model).

For context, each of our participants works as part of a transitional work crew to gain 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 Senior Site Supervisor works in close collaboration with Los Angeles’ Program Director and worksite partners/customers to lead a team of Site Supervisors to positively impact the lives of individuals recently released from prison as they train, coach, and supervise participants on work sites to complete projects for our customers.

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. In 2016, CEO embarked on a 5-year strategic plan to grow to serve 9,000 participants annually.
