Milton Academy is an independent college preparatory K–12 school, boarding and day in grades 9–12, located just outside Boston.
Milton Academy cultivates in our students a passion for learning and a respect for others. Milton students grow by developing their own identities, learning from and listening to the lived experiences of others, and living and working among peers whose differences they accept with respect and care.
In our ongoing work to create an environment that confronts bias, injustice, and bigotry, we encourage each other to be open to learning, explore our histories and identities, and seek to understand the world around us with a critical lens. At Milton we prepare students to partner with their future communities to create a more just world, and to have the courage to speak up and live by our motto, “Dare to be true.”
Summary of Position:
Milton Academy seeks a full-time Director of Campus Services & Events.
The Director oversees Milton Academy’s Campus Services and Events department, which includes the scheduling, planning, and use of space on campus (calendar, events, athletic & non-athletic rentals, pool club), ancillary programs (Milton Academy Summer Camp, Saturday Course), critical campus services (dining / catering / snack bar, student transportation), and Town of Milton relations. The Director is also responsible for all risk management-related activities related to the above, including work with the Town’s Board of Health.
The Director has a critical leadership position on campus in coordinating and providing feedback to multiple stakeholders on key operating activities, overseeing a thoughtful and responsive team that engages with internal and external constituencies, and ensuring that decisions result in the best possible outcomes for the school. Ultimately, the Director is primarily focused on ensuring that the mission of the Academy is fulfilled. This is achieved through meeting the varied space, event-related, and services needs of all divisions, departments, and on-campus residents. To achieve this, the Director oversees expense budgets of approximately $5M. In addition, Campus Services generates approximately $2M in revenue each year to help fund the Academy’s mission-focused activities and is responsible for identifying new opportunities to increase revenue.
Reporting to the Chief Financial and Operating Officer (CFOO), the Director engages the CFOO in addressing issues and identifying improvements in each of the above areas and collaborating with other CFOO-area Directors to meet the Academy’s operational needs. The Director also ensures that the CFOO and other members of senior leadership are aware of key operational activities and events on campus, ensuring that input is obtained and incorporated at critical junctures.
A bachelor’s degree and ten years of operations and events experience are required. A qualified candidate will have experience managing outsourced contacts and internal teams and demonstrated accountability for revenue generation and/or large budgets.
