Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay (BBBSMB) matches underserved youth with adult mentors in lasting one-to-one friendships supported by professional staff and is currently serving over 2,000 children annually. BBBSMB is at an exciting juncture and faces new challenges and opportunities as it seeks to scale its services to reach more children.

To accomplish this mission, BBBSMB is seeking a Community Relations Supervisor (aka Insides Sales Supervisor) to manage and be part of the Community Relations “insides sales” team.  The team is responsible for communications, critical thinking and customer service, to qualify “leads” and inbound inquires and, as appropriate, bring interested volunteers, youth and their families into the mentoring program enrollment process.  The CR team is accountable for meeting quantitative goals for volunteer enrollments, youth home visits and pipeline yield.  The Supervisor is responsible for both driving the team to exceed annual goals as well as provide own direct support to inquiring adult volunteers and youth and their families.

Key Responsibilities:

·Supervise Community Relations staff of three, ensuring the team’s focus on quality service, maximizing efficiency, tracking to and exceeding annual goals.
