Acumen Fund New York is looking to hire two great people, most likely in New York, on our Business Development team. Both roles have incredible potential for impact – and will be essential to Acumen Fund’s engine for fundraising, building community, and sharing insights on our efforts to create a world beyond poverty.
One person, for the more junior role, must be a crackerjack writer, thinker, synthesizer. He or she will have wondered if her writing and organizational skills could be coupled with her passion for international issues and global development. And he or she will discover that the answer is “yes.”
The other person, for the more senior role, is a fearless fundraiser, defined
in its fullest way and with all the strategic potential that implies. This person will externally represent and build cornerstone partnerships for Acumen Fund, so s/he must be a natural storyteller and builder who has the grace, presence and poise to be thrust into any meeting or relationship (individual, institutional, corporate, government, you name it) and leave the person on the other end thinking, “Wow!”
The links above have all the specific details.
If this job is for you, or if you know someone you think is perfect, let me know AND apply directly. We have audacious goals, for this team and for Acumen Fund, and I know we’ll get there. I can’t wait to find the two people who are going to help make this happen.
The deadline is next Monday. Please spread the word.
