Director of Finance and Administration, Steppingstone Scholars

Posted by Steppingstone Scholars on August 9, 2022

Who We Are and What We Do 

On May 24, 2022, the boards of Philadelphia Futures and Steppingstone Scholars voted to merge, creating one of the most dynamic, expansive, and trusted educational nonprofits in the City of Philadelphia. This vote provides a path for the joint organization to significantly scale services for students, particularly Black, Latino/a, and first-generation students, and to create sustainable access to academic and workforce opportunities.

Upon the official merger, which is subject to required governmental approvals, the organization will rebrand as a new entity to be unveiled in Fall 2022. In the coming months, we are excited to make key additions to the team (informally called PFSS in the interim) that will support the vision for the new organization: “all Philadelphia students graduate high school with pathways to economic mobility through college and workforce success.”

Note: Until the merger is finalized, which is anticipated for Fall 2022, new staff will be onboarded to Steppingstone Scholars.

About this Role: 

The Director of Finance and Administration will have primary responsibility for the organization’s financial management, facilities, contracting and administration. This individual will work closely with contractors, consultants and vendors for the organization, and handle day to day financial and administrative needs of the organization, elevating issues and concerns as needed. The Director of Finance and Administration will play a critical role in supporting the Senior Management Team to strengthen internal controls and capacity across the organization. The position maintains a 2+ in person office schedule, with occasional weekend hours.
