Position Summary

Community Workforce Development is currently hiring one new grant funded position at the Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center in Scappoose, Oregon. Funding for this position is through a grant currently funded through June 2026. Continuation of this position is dependent upon renewal of the grant funding.

Our center hosts career exploration and preparation activities, a range of credit and noncredit training programs, and employer recruitment.
