Full-Time Validation Director

TheOutreachTeam – Posted by TheOutreachTeam Los Angeles, California, United States

Job Description

The Outreach Team is hiring experienced campaign directors to run signature gathering offices to address some of the root causes of our current housing crisis in Los Angeles County. Our current approach towards housing solutions is not working. We need more innovation, bolder action, less red tape and bureaucracy. This measure would fund innovative homelessness prevention solutions and more effective approaches to move people off the streets and into housing, including repurposing vacant buildings, more street team engagement, and mental health and substance use treatment services. 

Right now, hundreds of millions of dollars are set to be cut from the budget to address homelessness resulting in a dramatic increase in homeless people on the streets. This new measure will replace the prior sales tax and will help protect and maintain mental health treatment, street team engagement, substance use treatment, and other essential services that would otherwise be cut. Now is the time for our community to come together and ensure we have affordable housing solutions for all.

Validation Directors will manage a team of 5-25 hourly paid validators who will review the signatures petitioners gather for this initiative. The Validation Director and their team will be responsible for reviewing signatures for eligibility, quality control, and maintaining an organized system of tracking and reporting. The Validation Director manages the day-to-day office operations, recruits and trains staff to hit campaign deliverables, and reports to the Project Director.
