The large public school system in North Carolina has opened a search for an Ombudsman Resolution Specialist.

It is not clear from publicly-available materials whether the search will supplement the work of or replace Earnest Winston, who was named the first CMS Ombudsman in August 2018.
Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree and three years experience in mediating work-related conflicts or as an Ombuds. Preferred qualifications include: a master’s degree; five years of school-based experience; bilingual skills; mediation or ADR experience; and active membership in professional associations related to Ombuds work and ADR. The position pays $54,122 to $68,952 per year. The application period opened yesterday and closes May 1, 2019. (CMS Careers, via TopSchoolJobs.)
