Are you looking to make an impact in a dynamic environment where you collaborate with smart, motivated people that want to make a difference in the world?
Who We Are
We’re Geneva Global, a Certified B Corporation and a mission-driven company that helps foundations, organizations, and individuals achieve positive social change through effective philanthropy. We help our clients and partners bridge the gap between aspiration and impact by leveraging twenty-plus years of experience putting philanthropic capital to work in nearly 100 countries. Our approach blends highly customized problem solving with proven methods to support evidence-driven decision-making.
We are looking for someone who has experience working with families or institutional donors in their giving, is familiar with consulting and professional services, and is ready to take the next step in their career.
As Director on the Donor Advising Team, your main goal is to foster an already exceptionally high-quality team, and its relationships and service to Geneva Global’s clients.
You’ll be capable of managing multiple competing priorities and projects, from short-term research to long-term strategy creation, to help clients express what they can do with their philanthropy or with philanthropic partners. You’ll also need to be prepared to work collaboratively with clients and the broader team at Geneva Global to create high-quality experiences and provide top-quality deliverables.
In concert with the Senior Director, you are leading the team to provide strategic direction, guidance, support, and project-based feedback daily. You oversee direct reports.
You’re a team leader, ready to dive in and do what needs to be done to delight clients. You are resourceful and meticulous and you’re able to deliver with clarity and confidence on the projects you’ve been assigned. You are experienced in identifying clients’ explicit and implicit needs and strategizing on how to meet them—in terms of staffing, approach and experience.
What We’re Looking For
You have a background in consulting, working with high net-worth families and foundations to help them craft their giving direction. You may have worked at an NGO or philanthropic organization. You understand relationships are important and want to grow them.
We’re seeking a candidate who demonstrates:
- Impeccable project management skills to lead multiple client-based workstreams and respond to ad hoc requests
- Critical thinking and analytical skills to execute on project deliverables for clients
- Strong communication skills, through writing/editing and/or facilitation
- A positive, team-centric attitude and willingness to both lead and support the team to complete long-term projects and meet short-term client needs in a fast-paced environment
- An understanding and track record of effective leadership and people management skills
- An ability to bring in new clients and/or expand and extend profitable business relationships with existing clients
- 10-15 years of relevant professional working experience, including experience engaging directly with clients, donors/funders, corporations, and/or other stakeholders
- A history of working with families or foundations on their philanthropy goals
- Proficiency with technology: Microsoft Excel or PowerPoint for the use of crunching numbers and presenting quantitative information in intuitive, attractive formats and crafting presentations
