Davis-Stuart Inc. will be accepting applications for the position of Executive Director through August 15, 2017. The successful candidate for this position will possess an advanced level degree in an area of human services or a behavioral health field from an accredited graduate school. Experience in management in a congregate or group care setting is preferred. Prior experience in the financial aspects of non-profit work is a plus. It is desired but not required that the Executive Director be a licensed behavioral health provider or be capable of licensure. Because this is an agency affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), a commitment to work with the denomination and the presbytery, and to operate the agency within that covenant relationship is required. The Executive Director shall fulfill all requirements related to employment within a residential child care facility that would apply to staff primarily working directly with our residents, including background checks and drug screening. A valid drivers’ license is required.
The mission of this agency involves providing residential therapeutic treatment to adolescents. While this is an administrative position, it is expected that the Executive Director shall interact on a regular basis with staff, residents, legislators, licensure officials, donors, potential donors, family members of our residents, judges and court personnel. The ability to interact in a positive and meaningful way is essential to this position. Good written and verbal communication skills are important.
If you are interested in applying for this position please send a letter of interest and a resume to Susan Perry, P.O. Box 112, Logan, WV 25601 or you may email those documents to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
