Las Vegas, NV

 

Seeking Passionate Education Leaders!

TNTP seeks a full-time Partner for the Strategy, Systems and Policy department. This position is based in Las Vegas, NV and is available on October 1, 2013.

Who We Are

TNTP is a national non-profit that has reimagined teaching. We believe great teaching is transformative and that teachers, more than any other factor in education, have the greatest impact on whether or not a student will succeed in school. We were founded by teachers and they are at the center of everything we do. Our mission is to end educational inequality by providing excellent teachers to students who need them most and by advancing policies and practices that ensure effective teaching happens in every classroom.

The Strategy, Systems, and Policy department helps districts and states nationwide answer a critical

question: is everything we're doing supporting great teaching? Sitting at the intersection of policy and

practice, the team designs better ways of evaluating teachers, supporting managers, and crafting

smart policies. Our partnership with the Clark County School District, "Great Teachers, Great Leaders," focuses on increasing the effectiveness of CCSD's workforce by helping the district recruit the most talented teachers, hire and train great school leaders, and retain their highest performing educators.

Who We Want

We are looking for amazing people who have diverse backgrounds and experiences, are inspired by our mission and are highly motivated to change children's lives through education. If you've been pegged as a problem solver, complimented for your communication skills, and proven you thrive in a fast-paced environment, you'll be right at home here. We're looking for talented people who learn from failure and overcome adversity, cultivate strong relationships, and push themselves, their work and the people around them to the next level.

As a Partner, you will provide the leadership, strategic direction, decisive decision making, and client and team management necessary to ensure the success of our Great Teachers, Great Leaders work with the Clark County School District. We expect the Partner to:

  • Be an innovative strategist. You're a strategy setter who can generate solutions to thorny challenges, but you also know when to call it. If something's not working you are the first to advocate for a new approach.
  • Influence others to act. We're counting on your ability to provide thoughtful and compelling insights in settings small and large, formal and informal. You'll regularly interact with, and be expected to influence, clients motivating them to make incremental changes and take quantum leaps.
  • Have a distinguished track record. You've been setting and achieving ambitious goals throughout your career.
  • Develop talent. One of your greatest responsibilities and privileges will be to manage and develop TNTP's amazing people.
  • Have deep education experience. You have experience in education or navigating complex organizations, like urban school districts.

We offer a comprehensive benefits plan effective on the first day of employment. We pay 100% of employee-only medical coverage and subsidize the majority of costs for a spouse/domestic partner and children.
