Senior Associate Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
"This is an organization that deeply cares about and invests in their people both personally and professionally. When I first started at Uncommon, I was an entry-level Coordinator. Five years later, after investments my managers have made in me through regular cycles of feedback, professional development, and the opportunities to stretch my skills, I now have the privilege of overseeing our celebrated Summer Teaching Fellowship program as a Senior Associate Director."
Senior Associate Director of Financial Management
"Working at Uncommon Schools has been my greatest professional experience. The Home Office teams are closely aligned and collaboration feels seamless. The work is challenging, and my role highlights my strengths and allows me to develop in growth areas with a perfect balance of autonomy and direct support."
Associate Director of Recruitment
"My colleagues on the Recruitment Team are some of the most passionate and dedicated people I’ve worked alongside. They work in innovative ways to find creative solutions to challenges, and they create new initiatives, working to ensure that our schools stay staffed with the best teachers and leaders our kids deserve."
