Girl Effect is looking for an outstanding and motivated individual to lead the organization’s development efforts as the Chief Development Officer.
Girl Effect is at a pivotal time as an organization—growing its internal fundraising capacity, delivering a new strategy and moving from a headquartered organization in London to a networked structure in which resource, talent, and expertise are evenly distributed across our geographies (Africa and Asia). The Development function is therefore critical to smoothly and securely resource and lead the organization during this transition to position it for present and future growth and impact.
In this spirit, the ideal candidate will be an exceptional leader who can build first-rate resource mobilization strategies and systems, with a track record of success raising upwards of $15 million per year from a diversified funding portfolio.
The successful Chief Development Officer will be an optimistic, nimble, and creative problem-solver who can manage a distributed team, take ownership over the organization’s revenue targets, and act as a passionate and compelling brand ambassador and strategic communicator. Experience in international development is a must, with mission-alignment, sector-specific knowledge, and/or regionally relevant experience highly preferred.
The successful candidate will report to the CEO. Ideally this position will be based in the New York metropolitan area or potentially the West Coast (Bay area).
