JOB OPENING – RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR

United Way of Northwest Louisiana is tackling tough issues, making a lasting difference in our community, and helping change lives for the better – like preparing children for kindergarten, helping families become more financially stable, enabling access to quality health care, and ensuring everyone has a safe place to call home.

As the Resource Development Director, you’ll collaborate with our team of dedicated staff, donors, and volunteers who are committed to working together to build a better life and stronger community for everyone. We are seeking an individual who would consider themselves all of the following:

  • An optimistic leader who is a go-getter and can confidently manage our annual fundraising campaign under the direction of the CEO and COO, while targeting new sources of revenue to support our mission.
  • Both a results-driven strategist and a “doer,” you are skilled at analyzing data to build your plan and rolling up your sleeves to make things happen. You have a natural ability to build relationships with donors and community volunteers while engaging them in our work, and you’ve never met a stranger.
  • Results oriented and an independent worker.
  • Have an ability to lead a team to set goals and then work together to achieve and surpass those goals.
  • A gifted communicator who can tell the United Way story across audiences and present your ideas clearly verbally and in writing.
  • Resource Development/Sales and Public Speaking Experience is preferred.
