Facilities Manager

ESEPA is an interdenominational, evangelical Bible college and seminary, founded in 1983 in response to the need to train evangelical, Protestant pastors in Costa Rica. ESEPA is now recognized internationally for the training it offers church leaders, Christian educators, and transcultural workers. ESEPA currently offers two master’s, three undergraduate, and seven associate degrees. Over two hundred students at ESEPA’s main campus and three extension campuses take classes taught by twenty faculty members and a sizable adjunct faculty. The Latin Americans and foreign missionaries serving at ESEPA have an opportunity to make a deep and lasting impact on the academic life and mission of the Latin American church.

The Facilities Manager oversees the maintenance and upkeep of ESEPA’s facilities. The person who fills this position will have a knowledge of facilities, will be able to assess the needs of the institution, and will present a plan and budget for their regular maintenance. Previous managerial experience is required as this position could also require overseeing one or two part-time employees (as funds allow.) Creative thinking and an eye for improvements and fixes that will improve the longevity of our facilities are a must for this position.

• Managerial experience leading multiple work teams.
• English and Spanish fluency or a willingness to learn the other language.
