About Food Shift:

Despite the abundance of food and wealth in the Bay Area, 1 in 4 people in San Francisco and 1 in 5 in Alameda are food insecure – many of them seniors and children.  Meanwhile, 40% of all food produced in the United States is wasted, contributing to climate change that is ravaging communities around the globe. Food Shift’s work directly responds to these social and environmental imbalances.  Food Shift’s local efforts exist as part of a broad and growing movement to transform our economy and culture toward a more just, equitable, and regenerative planet for all. 

Food Shift, a project of Earth Island Institute, is developing collaborative models to reduce wasted food, feed communities, and provide jobs. Food Shift’s primary project is The Food Shift Kitchen, a unique social enterprise that recovers produce that would have otherwise been wasted due to cosmetic imperfections and transforms it into nourishing meals that are donated to food insecure communities or sold to local businesses to generate revenue for the program.

The Food Shift Kitchen is located at Alameda Point Collaborative (APC), a housing cooperative that provides housing assistance for low income and formerly homeless families. 99% are APC residents are living below the poverty line and struggling with disabilities. Food Shift partners with APC’s on-the-job training (OJT) program to provide a six month culinary training and certification program. Students learn valuable work-ready skills that will support them in acquiring future employment, strengthening their economic security and personal empowerment. Using this OJT and other models of partnership, Food Shift Kitchen aims to expand its workforce training and development efforts.

Inspired by the success of DC Central Kitchen, we aim to grow our impact throughout the Bay Area and demonstrate a positive model for the rest of the country to follow.

About the role: 

The Chef & Culinary Educator will work closely with the Food Shift team and Food Shift community partners to execute the culinary training program. The CE and Catering Instructor (CI) work together as a team to ensure a successful program. Together they work on maintaining health and safety standards, food donations, kitchen supplies, and inventory.  The CE spends a large portion of their time working directly with community members and supports them through outreach, enrollment, training, and support in job placement. The CE will also adapt the process to ensure that students' needs are met and organize guest chef & educational field trips to enhance the program experience. 

We believe in the power of healing through food and use it as a tool to connect with each other during the program. The kitchen is a safe space for students to learn, make mistakes, and grow. The CE ensures that the students gain basic skills that will help them succeed in the catering internship and beyond. During the training the CE is responsible for sharing any crucial student information like evaluations & timesheets with the CI and workforce partners. The CE is also an ambassador for the organization and works with different workforce partners to create a network for a well rounded program. Workforce partnerships are an important part of creating bridges between different communities, as well as being able to offer wrap around services to those who need it. The training program can sometimes change due to the needs of our workforce partners and customizing culinary training systems might be needed. The CE will play a critical role in Food Shift’s mission to reduce waste, feed communities, and create jobs as part of a holistic vision for healthy and sustainable communities and individuals.

Job Description

Program Director, Sales & Program Management

At the core of every outstanding Compass experience is an outstanding Compass program director. Our program directors lead our efforts to deliver exceptional value to Compass’s clients and tutors.

The Role:

Program directors play the critical role of developing and maintaining relationships with our clients and instructors. Their activities are focused around consultative sales, attentive program management, customer guidance and care, supervision of our tutor staff, and relationship cultivation within a broad referral-based community. Every client’s test preparation program is crafted and managed by a Compass program director and every Compass tutor is hired, trained, mentored, supervised, and supported by our program director team.

Essential Functions:

  • Conduct several consultative sales calls per day with potential clients, typically by phone and occasionally in person.

  • Make customized and student-centric program recommendations based on extensive conversations.

  • Follow up with prospective clients conscientiously and thoughtfully.

  • Convert recommendations into individualized tutoring programs and manage those programs to successful and highly satisfying outcomes.

  • Each program director actively manages several hundred one-on-one programs per year and provides a level of personalized service that consistently leads to enthusiastic word-of-mouth referrals and long term loyalty.

  • Make thoughtful tutor matches for each client; supervise the tutor-client relationship; provide ongoing strategic guidance and expertise related to college admission testing and preparation; resolve any program-related concerns.

  • Develop and maintain long term relationships with clients; strengthen relationships with tutors by providing ongoing support, evaluating performance, and offering professional development and mentoring.

  • Conduct interviews with prospective tutors and share management responsibility for the overall recruitment, training, and professional development process.

  • Deepen our enduring relationships with school-based and independent college counselors by consulting with them on program recommendations, and providing student progress reports.

  • Program directors with interest and skill in public speaking have the opportunity to lead presentations at schools for parent and student audiences and at conferences for counselors.

The Ideal Candidate:

At Compass, our program directors stand out not only for what they do but also for how they think. We ask for conscientious and consistent effort to align daily actions with our ethical standards and long term goals. We expect that a program director’s contribution will increase over time with an expanding breadth and depth of experience and expertise, more and higher stakes responsibilities, and by assuming leadership roles.

While handling the busy demands of a routine day, our program directors are guided by the longview aspect of their roles. This is revealed in their client conversations, the details in their work, their decision making, and in the way they talk about Compass. They make a consistently positive impression on everyone they meet. They are experienced, empathetic, wise, trustworthy, sensible, fair, honest, engaged, and needed.

In Return:

We strive to make our program directors feel confident and secure, trusted and supported. We look for hard working team players who want to invest long term and who will make the most of an investment in them. Program directors are central figures at Compass but part of a much larger full-time team that provides mentoring, strategic leadership, administrative and operational support, and cutting-edge tech tools. Program directors are given the help – and the autonomy – they need to succeed.

While this is a sales position, ours is not a typical sales culture. We keep the client’s needs at the center of every conversation and let the appropriate recommendation emerge from there.
