Full Job Description
The Quad Preparatory School is an alternative, non-profit, K-12 college preparatory school dedicated to the education of twice exceptional students - bright and creative children who learn differently. Here, students rise to the level of talent, instead of being kept down to the level of challenge, in a completely alternative program that truly molds itself to each child.
Quad Prep is a kind and joyful learning community where everyone is celebrated for who they are.
We ignite students’ strengths and passions and allow for safe academic pursuit at the highest levels by learning from mistakes.
We are trustworthy and steadfast, and our high academic expectations challenge students to grow uniquely as people and in the way they learn.
We widen our students’ perspectives, giving them the tools to know themselves and find success in the future of their choosing.
We never give up on each other and are driven by the ethos of “not if, but how.”
Quad Prep is looking for our next amazing Operations Manager, someone who will help us make sure we’re the best we can be every day, so we do the best we can for our students. You’re someone who loves crossing things off a to-do list, and you’re calm, cool, and collected no matter what crosses your desk. Every day is different at Quad Prep – we like it that way! – but overall here’s what we need you to do:
You’re responsible for the care and upkeep of Quad Prep’s entire physical plant, totaling 90,000sqft. You have great help! You’ll be directly managing our amazing facilities staff and contractors to ensure our school equipment is in great shape and our space is well-maintained. Of course, this includes making sure we're adhering to all NYSED and NYDOH COVID protocols.
You’ll also be responsible for maintaining our furniture and IT inventory via our digital database.
Safety and Security
You’ll be the main contact for our awesome security team, ensuring we have all necessary coverage.
We have a robust safety plan, and in coordination with our Assistant Head of School you’ll be overseeing all school safety needs, including fire drills, lockdown procedures, and disaster planning.
We love our technology! And you’ll make sure everything we have is in working order, including overseeing all IT procurement (computers, printers, and accessories).
And when things break, you’ll coordinate all IT support with external vendors to ensure functioning internet, printing, and computer needs at all times.
Ideally you've worked in an administrative, operations, or production management role at a non-profit/arts organization or school. Please include a cover letter to tell us about why you think you'd be a great fit at Quad Prep - we can't wait to hear from you!
