Right now is the best time to get into a career selling for TransNational in the exciting e-commerce and mobile payments industry! With new industry security mandates coming very soon, each and every merchant that accepts credit and debit cards must update their equipment to be able to continue accepting cards. This mandate was put in place to better protect every merchant's customers identifying information and will be needed to accept the new chip based credit & debit cards that all consumers will begin receiving from their banks as their current cards expire.

This is very good news for TransNational sales reps as while most other processing companies will be looking to cash in by charging their merchants either high prices on the new credit card terminals or lock them into long non-necessary leases, TransNational will continue to build relationships on trust and provide merchants their new equipment for only the necessary costs and offset those costs by providing them with a lower rate structure during the transition. Our reps will also fully update all merchants on the reasons for the changes and the overall state of the merchant services industry moving forward. When changes like this one happens in our industry, TransNational sales reps typically see a significant increase in merchants willing to set up appointments which inevitably leads to a significant increase in total sales.

About the Agency and West Town Academy:
Greater West Town Project (GWTP) is a 25-year old community-based non-profit organization working to expand educational and economic opportunities for Chicago’s West Side low-income communities. GWTP seeks a DIRECTOR for our West Town Academy (WTA), an alternative High School that re-enrolls former high school dropouts 17-21 yrs old. WTA grants state-recognized High School diplomas and assists graduates in pursuing post-secondary education and career opportunities, while fostering a strong culture of community service. WTA’s diverse student body is 75% African American, 25% Latino. Given that nearly 50% of Chicago’s West Side teens never finish high school, the WTA plays a critical role in providing a pathway out of poverty for local at-risk youth. Without a high school diploma, at-risk youth have few chances at getting and keeping a job, or starting a career. Since its inception in 1998, WTA has helped nearly 1,000 former dropouts earn their High School dip lomas and go on to college or start careers. WTA also serves as a model for how civic and government leaders could create and expand resources and programs to effectively address the needs of our communities’ at-risk and dropout youth.

• Administrative Role: Serves as Administrator of the WTA Alternative High School and its alternative education programs; responsible for ensuring compliance with State and Local administrative regulations governing public high schools
• Role in GWTP: Works under the direction of Greater West Town Project’s Executive Director, and participates in GWTP’s Management Team

• School Leadership: Encourages teamwork and creative problem solving among WTA administrative team, teachers, and other staff; helps to develop and oversee implementation of effective student recruitment and community outreach strategies.

Salary and Benefits: Full-time, permanent, year-round, career position; salary based on skills and experience. GWTP Benefits package includes: Health, Life, Disability insurance; retirement plan; bonus program; educational reimbursement.
