The extreme disparity in health outcomes and access to healthcare that exists today between the world's rich and the world's poor is unjust and unsustainable. To change this unacceptable status quo will require a new generation of leaders with diverse skills and backgrounds. Emerging leaders need opportunities to build their skillsets and build meaningful connections with other young leaders who share a vision for transformative change.
Global Health Corps is mobilizing a global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. We do this by providing yearlong paid fellowship opportunities to passionate young leaders. During their fellowship years, GHC fellows serve in positions of impact within outstanding organizations in the US and sub-Saharan Africa. They also engage in intensive training, professional development opportunities, mentorship and thoughtful community-building.
Fellows work in teams of 2—one international fellow, one in-country fellow—on a wide range areas that improve healthcare access and health outcomes for the poor. Fellows have built financial management systems for grassroots HIV organizations in Uganda, counseled homeless teenagers in New Jersey, supported district pharmacies in Rwanda in rolling out new supply chain management tools, and conducted policy research in Washington DC.
Global Health Corps is a start-up social enterprise entering its fifth year. The organization has grown steadily over the first five years, supporting classes of 22, 36, 68, 90 and now 106 fellows. A global team of 11 supports the106 fellows, as well as 200+ alumni spread all over the world. The team is fast-paced, innovative and values-driven. We are searching for a creative, highly organized, hard-working Development Director to help us plan for significant growth in the next five years by building a much larger, stable, diversified donor base. The ideal candidate is someone who has several years of success raising funds for mission-driven organizations and can both shape the fundraising plan of Global Health Corps and roll up his/her sleeves and implement it. S/he is passionate about donor cultivation and sees donors as partners who join Global Health Corps in working towards a mutually-important goal -- global health equity. S/he is skilled at collaborating with a wide variety of donor partners, and has demonstrated experience managing multiple, significant, simultaneous projects. S/he will have a talent for developing multi-year partnerships that yield increasing contributions from year to year.
The Director of Business Development will report to the Chief Executive Officer and will fill a pivotal role on our small, dynamic team. Because of the small size and innovative bent of the team, there will be many opportunities to experiment and try new ideas, and to grow professionally. Specific responsibilities include:
