Director- Ankeny Service Center

The Ankeny Service Center has been operating as a coordinator and provider of human services in the Ankeny area informally since 1981 and formally since 2010 as a 501c3 non-profit corporation. We have helped countless individuals and families in need. We work with our clients to identify needs, develop solutions, utilize qualified partners, and make the appropriate referrals. Programs we operate include Holiday Assistance, emergency assistance, transportation services for seniors and food assistance. 

The Director position is being redefined following the retirement of a long serving individual. We are transitioning from part-time to a full-time with an expectation to advance the role the Ankeny Service Center plays in service to the community we serve. The Ankeny Service Center has a volunteer Board of Directors and the Director will report to the President of the Board. The Director will oversee a part-time Administrative Assistant.

We are looking for a self-starter with exceptional communications skills, who can manage their time effectively. The Director will need versatile skill sets and be involved in day to day operations, supervision of staff and volunteers, program development, client interaction, community relationship building as well as fundraising.

Ideally, the successful candidate will have a college degree and experience in the human services field including fundraising, program management and operations.
