Overview

Alzar School is currently seeking a Director of Facilities & Vehicles. Facilities management is a dynamic endeavor that helps us enjoy, preserve, and build our community while inspiring learners and helping them find a “home away from home” and develop a sense of place. The facilities and vehicles that our community access, coupled with the beauty and sustainability of our landscapes and environments, communicate intentionality, care and thoughtfulness. The Director of Facilities & Vehicles oversees all aspects of maintenance, improvements, housekeeping and grounds for Alzar School’s two campuses: A 370-acre campus in Cascade, Idaho on the North Fork of the Payette River with approximately 30,000 square feet of buildings and a 376-acre campus in Coyhaique, Chile on Lago Atravesado with approximately 15,000 square feet). The position will be based out of Cascade, with an anticipated visit to the Coyhaique campus at least once annually. This position reports directly to the Head of School and is responsible for the expense management of a $250,000+ facilities budget. This position requires both hands-on and administrative work, and the opportunity to truly grow the entire program. The opportunities at Alzar are exciting, with excellent opportunities to learn and find reward in the work. Alzar is seeking a caring steward for our beautiful centers of learning. The position could start as soon as June 1, 2022.
