Business Development Lead

//Business Development Lead

Position: Other

Accepting through: May 31, 2019

State/Province: Illinois

Position Description:

This position leads job acquisition for the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School and Christ the King Jesuit College Prep. This includes cultivating new job prospects, stewardship of existing corporate partner relationships for retention / expansion, onboarding new job partners, executing marketing tactics that help renew or secure jobs for the program, and constantly developing relationships and networking to achieve job targets for the two schools.

Cristo Rey and Christ the King pioneered the CWSP model for inner-city education that has inspired a national network of 32 schools serving economically under resourced communities across the country.  The CWSP enables all students to earn a majority of their annual tuition by working one school day a week in an entry-level position for a corporation in the Chicago area. While initially serving principally to pay the operational costs of the schools, the CWSP has evolved into a progressive means of providing students with valuable work experience, while simultaneously empowering them to take an active part in financing a major portion of their own education.
