Barkai Yeshivah is seeking qualified candidates to fill the School Operations Manager position.


The School Operations Manager is a versatile and team-oriented individual with abilities and experience across operations, logistics, finance, and academic administration. An essential function of the School Operations Manager is to enable the Head of School to focus on instructional leadership – the teaching and learning that drives student outcomes.

Operations Managers serve as a vital link between the school and the broader community, helping faculty and staff, parents, vendors and other constituents navigate various aspects of the school. The role requires: (a) an entrepreneurial approach towards meeting the needs of the school’s management team as well as the school’s staff and students; (b) a sense of ownership, with the Operations Manager ultimately responsible for areas under their purview; and (c) empathy and clear communication skills since the role has a large “customer service” component.

The School Operations Manager will report to the Head of School and the Executive Director with a focus towards ensuring the school maximizes teaching and learning – while also ensuring we build a sustainable organization.

1. Operational Staff Management
