Do you want your work to matter? Do you want to use your skills to make a difference, not just a living? Do you want to improve millions of lives, including your own?
Living Goods is seeking an extraordinary Business Development Associate who will exert strong leadership by supporting a broad range of development and communications priorities that enable the organization to achieve its ambitious goals. This is a critical role in a rapidly growing social enterprise. We plan to grow fivefold in the next few years. We think big, but we operate small and nimble.
At Living Goods, you will have the chance to use your creativity and work with your teammates to innovate and test new ideas every day. If you work well in a dynamic, collaborative culture, if you set high standards, if you know how to fail fast and learn fast, if you meet challenges with determination and a sense of humor, you will thrive at Living Goods.
The Business Development Associate will be a Rockstar researcher and systems-builder. We’re looking for a creative mind to conduct research and analysis on prospective donors (individuals, foundations, corporations) to identify new funding opportunities. You will develop and hold expert knowledge of the market to create strategies for the Business Development team to connect with and engage new donors. The second critical part of the role is to strengthen and create critical systems and data related to grants and donor stewardship, improving the efficiency of our donor data. While keeping the ship running for our development team, you’ll have the opportunity to jump into strategic projects and help move us more quickly towards our revenue goals.
