Business Manager

Business Manager

One World Montessori School is a non-profit corporation dedicated to providing an excellent Montessori education to diverse families at a reasonable cost. We are approaching our 40th year since incorporation. We provide services to approximately 200 children between the ages of 2 and 12. We have three campuses — all located near the Willow Glen area in San Jose, CA. They are within 15 minutes of each other and are staffed by 35 employees as well as several contract service providers. Since 1979, the school has been headed by Rebecca Keith, who is the only remaining member of its founding board. She and Jeanette Montoto, who has been with the school since 1981, are currently acting as Heads of School as well as members of the board. As Rebecca and Jeanette move toward retirement, we are dividing their academic, staff, student and curricular responsibilities between three campus heads and creating the position of business manager to take on the responsibilities of handling the financial operations of the school. The business manager would report directly to the Board of Directors.

Requirements
  • Ability to analyze financial data, make projections, and assist in making financial decisions for the school
  • Knowledge of HR responsibilities and excellent people and communication skills
  • Fund raising experience
  • Grant writing experience
  • Ability to manage bookkeeper and three office managers
  • Ability to work collaboratively with three campus heads

Most importantly, a business manager would need to respect and be able to work comfortably within the culture of the school, realizing that the needs of the children, rather than making money, always come first. We will never compromise the quality of education that we provide for financial gain.

In person attendance is required for meetings and HR matters. However, we would be open to working remotely part of the time. Because this is a newly created position, we are willing to be flexible about hours and would work with the business manager to tailor the position to fulfill needs of which we may not yet be fully aware.
