The Greater Peoria Economic Development Council (GPEDC) is looking for a dynamic and passionate professional to join our team to serve as the Director of Workforce Solutions. GPEDC is a non-profit organization charged with crafting and launching initiatives that improve the economy of a five county area in Central Illinois centered on the Peoria metropolitan area. More information on GPEDC at www.greaterpeoriaedc.org.
GPEDC’s Director of Workforce Solutions plays a vital role in economic development. Without a robust and comprehensive talent pipeline that both prepares citizens for available jobs and attracts people from outside the region to move here, our existing businesses cannot grow and succeed. This position helps develop and lead impactful and transformative initiatives that lead to successful outcomes for businesses and residents alike.
Qualified candidates will be highly motivated initiators with a proven track record of successfully managing complex projects with multiple partners. This is a challenging but rewarding position that requires determination, creativity, patience and the ability to form and manage relationships. A full job description can be found here.
To be considered for the position, please submit your resume AND a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your cover letter should provide context to the professional and personal qualifications in your resume, explain why you are interested in the position, and outline how your experiences and education are relevant to the job requirements. Applications without a cover letter will not be accepted. This position will be open until filled, with the first review of resumes on June 16, 2023.
