New Opening With MAP: Development Coordinator
Mangrove Action Project, a non-profit project of Earth
Island Institute, is looking for a Development
Coordinator on either a part time or full time basis.
Here are some of the job requirements:
The Development Coordinator (DC) must be dynamic,
self-motivated and able to express her/him self
clearly and concisely, possessing strong planning,
communication and organization skills.
The applicant must have a BS/BA or equivalent
Experience in development/ fundraising for
non-profits, including grant writing, with a proven
track record of success
Experience with public speaking and have good
Database management and working knowledge of various
Involvement in/ familiarity with international
conservation and tropical coastal ecosystems a plus.
Work closely with Steering Committee, or future
Board of Directors, and Executive Director and staff
Prepare reports and provide other support as needed
Manage and maintain donor database as needed
Compensation based on negotiable commission. The DC
position with MAP is at first a commission basis job,
requiring funds raised by the DC him or her self to
pay a partial amount of the DC's own salary. Until
funds are actually raised by the DC, the percentage
would equal zero. Otherwise, the DC would earn a
certain variable percentage which is negotiable.
After MAP has sufficient funds in our account, we
would then wish to hire the DC on a part time or full
time salary basis-perhaps a fixed salary, or
partially fixed and part commission.
All applicants must send a cover letter specifically
explaining how you meet each qualification listed
above, turn in a current resume, and list three to
five personal references.
This is a draft job description for the DC position,
so we can refine this over time. If you think your
qualifications match the requirements for a DC, please
let us know.
