Ascend Indiana is a fast-growing nonprofit on a mission to address Indiana’s workforce misalignment. Ascend’s vision is for every Indiana employer to have access to the skilled workforce necessary to thrive, and for every Indiana citizen to have the opportunity to pursue a meaningful career path. Ascend Indiana is a catalyst across industry sectors to connect the supply of skilled talent to demand from employers. An initiative of the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP), Ascend Indiana collaborates with corporate, education, philanthropic, and community partners, and is well-positioned to play a leadership role in addressing Central Indiana’s workforce challenges.
The Manager of Talent Identification will support the process for identifying and connecting talent to regional internship and career opportunities. The primary responsibilities of the Manager of Talent Identification will be to develop and implement effective recruitment strategies to meet with a high volume of students, understand their motivations and interests, and, ultimately, connect them to career pathways in Indiana. This direct impact with talent is a critical piece of Ascend’s strategy. Finally, this individual will support the Vice President of Talent Identification on high priority initiatives as assigned.
