Senior Talent Assessment Program Manager

As the Senior Talent Assessment Program Manager at Bezos Academy, you will collaborate with our talent management leader to oversee the performance assessment and development program for diverse staff across a fast-growing network of tuition-free, Montessori-inspired preschools. Our goal is to engage and develop these talented individuals who help to create amazing outcomes for children, so that all of our students become lifelong learners and original thinkers.

In this position, you will build and lead a cross functional project team to research, develop, design, and implement a novel performance assessment framework which aligns to our overall talent strategy. You will apply our leadership principle to create a robust development journey for our staff, starting with our educators. This will prepare them to move along their career paths and ultimately discover, develop, and become certified in new skills and abilities.

You will have the opportunity to create and launch talent assessment programs for our national organization.  To do so, you will gather insight from our education, technology, data, talent management, and talent acquisition stakeholders to determine the feedback for teachers to receive, where and how that information is captured, and what measures are to be created so that we may apply analytics. You will use these insights to inform decisions and strategies on talent, performance, training, and development. You will also forecast and plan for a strong internal pipeline and build a predictive hiring model to assist talent acquisition in identifying top talent.

You possess strong leadership, communication, and project management skills in the talent management space. You effectively work with internal and external stakeholders across various departments and teams. You have had success building talent and performance management programs for large scale organizations and regularly use workforce analytics to drive talent insights actions.  You have experience (and a strong personal commitment to) industry-leading equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging practices in the field of talent and performance management.
