Jewish Council on Urban Affairs
The mission of the Jewish Council on Urban Affairs (JCUA) is to combat poverty, racism, and antisemitism in partnership with Chicago's diverse communities. Inspired by core Jewish values, JCUA organizes a Jewish constituency to collaborate with communities directly impacted by poverty and racism toward realizing a shared vision of justice. In the context of JCUA’s ongoing work to build bridges and deepen connections with communities across the city, their work calls for three main areas of priority impact: 1) Issue-based campaigns and community organizing, 2) Youth leadership and engagement, and 3) Community investment. To achieve its mission, JCUA develops and mobilizes a base of individuals from the Jewish community who become engaged as leaders, donors, and participants in campaigns, initiatives, and programs.
JCUA seeks an experienced Operations Manager who will oversee business operations for the organization. The Operations Manager will report to and collaborate closely with the Executive Director and ensure effective and efficient business processes and practices, including financial, human resources, and staff support. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter who is detail-oriented and excited by the opportunity for growth in a fast-paced, team-centered environment, working as part of a strong team of leaders. The Operations Manager will have exceptional organizational skills with notable experience developing and managing budgets, overseeing general HR practices, and developing, implementing, and improving organizational processes and systems. JCUA looks forward to welcoming a collaborative and supportive team member into the JCUA family.
JCUA believes that personnel diversity is an organizational strength and recognizes and values the intersecting identities that staff members bring to the organization. People of color are strongly encouraged to apply.
