About You

Startwise is partnering with the Government of Barbados to deliver a radically transformative job training program that gives 1000s of Bajan youth access to global employment. We need a Director of Operations to shape the program operations and solve emerging bottlenecks and blockers. You'll lead by example for our trainers and their trainees to level up in your image. If you’re interested in setting a new global standard for program operations and training the next generation of ops leaders, let’s talk.

Your Responsibilities
  • Driving projects to completion: Serving as the head of operations for the program, the go-to person for all operations-related escalations, procedures, and policies
  • Implementing Program Designs: Balancing program design and business requirements with on-ground realities and constraints
  • Optimizing processes: Working closely with the Program Director to create smooth processes that enable hundreds of people to optimize their calendars and brain time
  • Tracking performance amp; progress: Setting up and monitoring performance acceleration and progress tracking software
  • Leading by example: Creating video demonstrations, hosting workshops, mentoring on business operations best practices
  • Troubleshooting problems: Spotting problems before they occur, resolving them as they're occurring, escalating as a last resort but not too late :)
Our Ideal Candidate: If ANY of the following resembles your story, let’s talk!
  • The Clockmaker: You're a natural solution-builder, streamlining projects to run like clockwork. When not working, you tackle home improvement projects or play strategy games. You have a talent for turning complex problems into sustainable solutions.
  • The Storm Chaser: You crave complexity, you’re cool under pressure, and you never rattle in the face of overwhelming ambiguity. You coach overwhelmed team members until they arrive at a place of clear-headedness and decisive action.
  • The Spreadsheet Visionary: A creative and organized thinker, you bring innovation and efficiency to your work. You keep operations running smoothly in service of big ambitions, vacuuming up ideas and possibilities, using spreadsheets to get the details right.

Why Apply

You should consider applying if you’re drawn to the challenge of building a zero to one training program that endeavors to radically transform the lives of 1000s of young people in Barbados and beyond.
