Teach For All is a global network of independent partner organizations in 61 countries around the world and a global organization working to grow collective leadership so that all children can fulfill their potential. Collective leadership requires a new set of leadership capacities - e.g., deepening awareness about ourselves and the world, building authentic relationships across lines of difference, mobilizing change in complex systems, and more.
We recently launched an exciting new initiative, a Global Leadership Accelerator, to grow these leadership competencies among tens of thousands of leaders who are working to reimagine education around the world.
You will join an entrepreneurial team and play a key leadership role in building the Global Leadership Accelerator in its startup years. You’ll have an opportunity to significantly shape the direction of this exciting new initiative, and accelerate the impact of incredible social entrepreneurs, teachers and other leaders around the world who are reimagining education.
As Director of Strategy & Operations, you will work directly with the Head of the Global Leadership Accelerator to build a high-impact entrepreneurial team with an energizing culture and efficient operations; lead on building and managing our knowledge management, communications, and impact evaluation systems; provide operational support for flagship leadership programs; and offer innovative ways to scale our work so we can ultimately reach tens of thousands of leaders around the world. You will report directly to the Head of the Global Leadership Accelerator.
You are a proactive and organized professional with experience in building new systems and processes. You demonstrate exceptional organization, communication, problem-solving, and project management skills.

You are passionate about bringing a new paradigm of leadership into the world and growing your own leadership in the process.
