National Cathedral School (NCS) announces a search for a part- or full-time director of global programs for an appointment beginning September 2018. The director of global programs will oversee the planning and execution of domestic and international overnight trips and implement the strategic vision for global programs at NCS. The director of global programs will be expected to improve and expand global program offerings, support students pursuing year abroad and international fellowship opportunities, serve as communication central and ground support for overnight domestic and international school trips, and oversee the financial and logistical aspects of each trip. Successful candidates will possess strong budgeting and financial oversight abilities; good judgment; exceptional organizational, interpersonal and presentation skills; and knowledge of insurance, risk management and international travel safety protocols. Other responsibilities include, but are not limited to, collaborating with alumnae, faculty, division heads, department chairs, and the director of community service, and working closely with the business office. The full-time director will be expected to teach one class and work from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, although there will be occasional days when meetings or classes are held before or after the stated hours, and be “on call” during overnight trips. Part-time candidates must be available 30 hours per week with no teaching responsibilities. Staff members are also expected to participate regularly in the life of the school during the work-day and occasional after-school, evening, or weekend events.

Salary and benefits are competitive, commensurate with experience. NCS is committed to leadership in multicultural education and a culturally diverse faculty and staff.
