Director of Administration

Description: 

Central California Legal Services (CCLS) is accepting applications for a full-time Director of Administration.  As a mission-driven, nonprofit public interest law firm, CCLS provides high-quality legal services to the indigent families of California’s Central Valley. Reporting to the Executive Director, our new Director of Administration (DA) will have primary responsibility for managing the operations of the program, including oversight of the program’s fiscal, human resources and IT functions and staff.  The DA will ensure compliance with the requirements of CCLS’s funding sources, the organization’s collective bargaining agreement (CBA), pertinent federal and state statutes and regulations, and the policies and procedures of CCLS and its Board of Directors.

Because this individual balances a variety of responsibilities, the position requires a high degree of flexibility, a professional attitude, significant initiative, and attention to detail.  An understanding of accounting principles, human resources and technology is essential.  The DA should bring experience in a nonprofit environment, a humanistic approach to management, and a commitment to service.  The individual should be able to work well both independently and as part of a team.

ABOUT CCLS

For over 50 years, CCLS has been representing and advocating for low income individuals in Merced, Tuolumne, Mariposa, Fresno, Tulare, and Kings Counties—a region where intense poverty exists side by side with unparalleled wealth and abundance.  Our mission is to provide high quality no-cost civil legal services to low income individuals, families, and communities—improving the wellbeing of our Valley through systems-changing advocacy as well as through legal work that meets individual clients’ immediate needs.  We also work closely with agencies and community organizations that share our commitment to support our clients in being their own agents of change.

Moving into this new era of tightening resources and increasing income inequality, we at CCLS are intensifying our broader-scale advocacy in courtrooms and policy arenas where indigent clients need champions.  Together with our clients and partners, you’ll have an opportunity to help CCLS challenge the systems that breed poverty in the Central Valley, reshaping our Valley’s narratives to support health and prosperity for all who live and work in this most fertile and beautiful region.
