Senior Development Coordinator

The take-away
Ready to take on some of the most powerful forces in our society? We’re looking for a senior development coordinator to join our fierce, smart team challenging global corporations, holding them accountable, and creating a world where all people can thrive. 

Why you’ll love coming to work every day
You’ll help change the world. We’re not kidding. You’ll join a team that’s not satisfied with the world as it is -- and has a vision for how it should be. Add a nearly 40-year track record of winning campaigns and smart plans to win even bigger in the face of Trump’s regime, and you’ve got a powerful force to be reckoned with.

You’ll work with awesome people. Join a team of super-smart, kind, funny, gritty, determined, and optimistic folks. We work hard, celebrate victories large and small, and have your back through it all.

You’ll be a part of fearless and winning campaigns. When you’re in the business of ending corporate abuses, you can’t be afraid to name names and stick to your guns. For almost 40 years we’ve been exposing and challenging the abuses of the likes of Nestlé, Exxon Mobil, Philip Morris International, McDonald’s, Dow Chemical, and more. We don’t back down, and we run campaigns until we win.

You can take on big responsibilities as you go. You’ll thrive here if you’re ready to take on more as you learn and grow. We pay lots of attention to growing staff leadership, and we provide support and training to help you be the best you can be.

You’ll find a culture of inclusiveness because it matters in all sorts of ways. We are deeply committed to prioritizing the leadership of those who bear the brunt of corporate abuse: women, people of color, low-income people, people in the Global South, and LGBTQ folks around the world. Our unique culture has been fostered by a long history of women at the helm. We know we are stronger when the organization reflects the vision of the world we’re building together. 

What you’ll do
We run hard-hitting campaigns that are powered by generous donors: 85 percent of our funding comes from individuals. And those gifts are raised by a bold team of major gifts fundraisers, including our president, executive director, campaign leadership, and major gifts organizers. Your job will be to coordinate this major gifts team to its highest capacity so that we’re reaching -- and blowing past -- our fundraising goals. 

You will also assist the development director to make sure she achieves her goals in managing a successful development department. As with any successful fundraising program, our secret sauce lies in our ability to create and maintain solid relationships with the people who give money and take action with us to create a better world. You will be a key part of making sure those relationships are fostered beautifully.

Coordinating a set of very active staff to raise the kinds of funds we need to take on our campaigns requires someone with stellar people skills and a razor-sharp focus on details. You’ll be juggling a lot of balls. And if you’re the right person for the job, you’ll be the wind beneath the major gift team’s sails, and the anchor to keep it centered and focused. 

Ready? Here we go!

Who you are

  • The rampant abuses of corporations and the outrageous amount of power they have make you mad as hell -- and you want to do something about it. Plus you know that social justice movements need to be funded, so you’re not afraid to ask for money to help change the world.
  • You have experience managing projects from start to finish, meeting tough deadlines, and managing both up and down to get what you need. It goes without saying that you are highly organized and a true people-person.
  • You thrive in a fast-paced, high-volume environment. You can turn on a dime when you need to. You jump at the chance to take on new challenges. And you don’t bat an eye when we need to change up the plan to make it stronger and better.
  • You are a systems thinker -- you know that good systems are vital to achieving ambitious goals. 
  • You know how to use the power of language to move people and create change. You’re a great writer and verbal communicator.
  • You have at least three years’ experience in a professional non-profit setting, ideally with a campaign or a grassroots fundraising focus. Bonus points if you have supervision experience.

What you’ll be responsible for in the day-to-day

  • Leading the coordination, logistics, and administration for our major gifts team across the organization. You make sure there’s effective communication and when new opportunities come up to raise more money and accomplish even more on our campaigns, you’ll take the lead in managing those rapid-response projects. And you will be responsible for  strengthening our donor cultivation and stewardship systems
  • Managing the development director’s scheduling and calendar. This means you’re fielding requests for her time daily and proactively troubleshooting, prioritizing, proposing solutions, and staying on top of every last detail to ensure she has what she needs before she even knows she needs it. 
  • Being the communications hub for the development department, communicating to staff across the organization -- as well as major donors -- on behalf of the development director. It also means drafting fundraising updates and other materials as needed. 
  • Taking the lead on planning and administration for the development department. You’ll track progress and think big to make sure we’re on track for our goals. You’ll also be the agenda-preparer and note-taker for department meetings -- and most importantly, the follow-upper to make sure those next steps are taken. 
  • Enthusiastically participate in organization-wide planning, fundraising, recruitment, and campaign activities.

Salary and benefits:

  • Your salary will be commensurate with experience. 
  • Our generous benefits package includes health insurance and dental coverage; FSA for transit, healthcare, and dependent care; and 401(k) with employer match.
  • Generous vacation and holiday policies.
  • Ongoing training and leadership development opportunities.
  • Energetic Campaign Headquarters complete with open, collaborative work spaces and a big social kitchen.

Location: Campaign Headquarters in downtown Boston, MA.
