Is this you?

Are you a customer service-focused, relationship building individual who has a passion for health care? Are you comfortable working with a myriad of cross-functional stakeholders from physicians to donors with a common goal?  Are you independent, curious, intelligent and do you possess high emotional intelligence? Are you an entrepreneurial builder of great relationships? Are you comfortable with fluctuating daily responsibilities?

Are you a team-oriented problem solver who isn’t afraid to dive into the details? You are open to a centralized organizational structure yet are confident in your own decisions and abilities. You are known among your peers as a consummate professional, able to tactfully manage complex situations and motivate/inspire colleagues and volunteers. You are strategic, mature and take initiative confidently. You see projects and task through from beginning to end.

You would humbly describe yourself as an excellent communicator, both verbally and written. You are “a doer”: methodical, process-oriented and flexible with taking on a variety of tasks.

Are you familiar with fundraising within a matrixed environment (hospital, university etc) and do you gain energy working with cross functional peers who aren’t fundraisers? (i.e. doctors, clinician’s).

Are you resilient, creative and not afraid of a challenge? Would you be excited about the opportunity to be a pivotal member of an advancement team for a premier health institution who are focused on building a strong foundation for future fundraising success?
