Jobs at OASBO
We are looking for a candidate who takes servant leadership to the next level. If you are approachable, responsive, open to change, and have a good sense of humor, keep reading. If you are business savvy, can articulate a plan, and set a vision in motion, keep reading.
OASBO is looking for someone to be the face of the organization and represent the needs of the entire membership, from school finance staff to business partners. A qualified candidate will be able to work with and balance relationships with policy makers and legislators, state education partners, national education partners, and other stakeholders working towards equitable education for all kids.
Candidates must have experience in school finance and understand the workings of a school business office. Oregon’s school business office staff are engaged and passionate about their role in serving students and the OASBO executive director should be equally engaged in public education.
The executive director needs to be able to balance delegating with the necessity of rolling up their sleeves to get the job done. A small but mighty staff makes teamwork, trust, and integrity an absolute essential part of the job.
