Is this you?
Would you be invigorated to work for a movement that is leading the charge in breaking down the stigma and discovering the causes and cures for mental illness?
Your peers would describe you as a self-starter, which you would humbly agree. You have successfully sought out new relationships for your organization and have found ways to continually engage and involve your partners. You would consider yourself an “up and comer”; you are extremely motivated and have a high tolerance for ambiguity. You might have a sales/prospect management background and are looking to transition into the not for profit sector. You may also be in a fundraising support role and you are looking to work on the front-line. You are known as a ‘go getter’ who is fearless in the boardroom, isn’t afraid to pick up the phone and speak to any body – though beyond that you find ways to make a meaningful connection with folks.
You are extremely organized and don’t get distracted easily. You know how to effectively identify and foster corporate relationships. You can leverage resources and work cohesively alongside senior volunteers to grow relationships. Ideally you have successfully worked in corporate fundraising within the charitable sector and have secured support from corporations and their foundations in the form of philanthropic gifts, sponsorship, cause marketing, and workplace fundraising including third party events.
You pride yourself in your relationship building (and maintaining) ability. You aren’t afraid of a challenge, in fact, challenges are what keep you going. You are known for your work ethic and want to inspire colleagues with your driven and motivational personality and work ethic. You are a culture-setter who cares about your personal well being and the wellbeing of your team members as much as you care about fundraising.
You have a passion for improving the lives of those living with and affected by mental illness. Not to mention, you want to work with a high performing ‘best-in-class’ team, with a leader who has a strong vision and is highly respected in the sector. Does this sound like you? If so, please read on…
