Have you been in a key growth role in the expansion of a fast-growing charter school network or other analogous enterprise? At AMS Impact Group, the back office service provider to the Academies of Math and Science, your skills and talents will facilitate the rapid expansion of a high-performing charter school network of 5 schools serving 4000 scholars. We are currently breaking ground for our 6th and 7th campuses to serve 6000 scholars by next year. As VP of Operations for AMS, you will play an integral part in our plans to serve 10,000 scholars in Arizona by August 2021 and lead expansion into new states.

We have a track record of being one of the highest performing charter school networks in Arizona for at-risk communities. Our goal is to be one of the largest and highest performing charter schools in the nation. We are looking for a rock star executive to add to our driven team as we strive to improve education in our nation’s low income communities.

Analyzing and improving processes as related to construction, site selection, facilities management, and safety procedures, and establishing strategic big-picture plans in collaboration with executive leadership.
Overseeing the management, as an Owner's rep., of at least several construction and other large implementation projects involving various municipalities and hired consultants.
Managing multi-site planning, maintenance operations, and design and construction for large campuses.
Providing vision and leadership for facilities development and operations as well as safety policies for daily school procedures.
Negotiating and reviewing the business and legal terms of many large and complex contracts over $5 MM. You must have a strong working knowledge of standard service, construction, and HR contract business and legal terms.
Assisting with subcontractor management, financial management, and schedule and budget management.
Overseeing school safety procedures, including working with principals to develop school pickup and drop-off, emergency plans, and active shooter response.

Qualified Candidates Must:
Be an excellent project manager capable of managing multiple projects concurrently.
Be extremely detail-oriented, results-driven, and ambitious on behalf of the company.
