Experience and Qualifications

  • 8+ years of direct experience in nonprofit business development and/or partnership programs and grant writing, including evidence of successful sales and/or funder management skills.

  • Experience using effective interpersonal skills, listening, diplomacy, and tact to build strong relationships with other team members and funders.

  • Demonstrated ability to design and implement business development initiatives.

  • Project management and execution skills with the ability to effectively manage multiple projects and priorities and ability to work independently.

  • Demonstrated decision-making skills that drive organizational success.

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Be detail oriented and work with minimal supervision and excellent time management.

  • Be a “self-starter” and goal driven to initiate donor visits and business development calls.
