Impact Officer - Comox Valley/Campbell River
United Way is looking for an Impact Officer based in Comox Valley or Campbell River to join our committed and ambitious regional team. United Way invests donor’s dollars and manages government and other funds to produce effective local solutions to improve lives. Tackling complex social problems today requires more than funding grants to stand alone social agencies. It also requires collecting local data, working in partnership with other funders, creating and/or driving effective collective impact tables/initiatives that plan and measure results.
Are you keen to understand the social issues facing our local communities, mapping resources that exist on the ground to tackle them, and determining how best to invest United Way resources (grants and volunteer/staff time) as part of the solution? Have you worked as a funder in other communities, led successful community development initiatives, driven effective social planning and community-based projects or developed direct service programs that changed lives? If so, we are interested in hearing from you. This position also requires public speaking and participating in donor stewardship initiatives.
This is currently a 0.5 FTE position and will increase to .75 FTE as of April 2019. Some orientation dates will be scheduled in December with a start date in early January.
This position works out of a home office and requires a vehicle/driver’s license.
Travel throughout the UWCNVI region is expected with emphasis on Comox Valley and Campbell River plus meetings with the staff team in Nanaimo.
Position Location: Comox Valley or Campbell River
Closing date: November 2, 2018
