CARE places special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives. To deliver on this mission, CARE USA manages full-time, long-term presence in 34 countries across five geographic regions. Each country presence is a distinct business unit responsible for ensuring its own financial viability through cultivating a pipeline of resources which will enable it to advance CARE’s mission in-country. While each country office is its own business unit, collectively.
For continued success in our mission, we are seeking a Global Strategic Resource Mobilization Director who will be responsible for knowing the story behind the pipeline across the global portfolio, and for communicating that story and the investment needs with people and teams across a wide network of internal stakeholders and CARE member partners who will contribute to building those pipelines for growth and investment in the mission in those country presences.
The person in this role will interpret and report out on CARE USA COs’ portfolio performance related to resource mobilization, using common metrics and data communication cadence. S/he will manage a resource mobilization fund that will invest in opportunities and activities to cultivate short, medium and long-term health and growth across the portfolio.
The Director will be responsible for driving a common approach to resource mobilization strategy and acquisition across business units through cultivating common business processes and practices.

About the Organization
CARE is an international NGO with local staff and community partners in more than 90 countries. We create local solutions to poverty and inequality and we seek dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis. These solutions have a broad range, from clean water to access to education; from microfinance to ensuring that everyone has nutritious food; from agriculture and climate change to disaster response. CARE puts women and girls at the center of everything we do because they have proven to be the best hope for creating lasting change in the world. Our staff live where they work, which makes us effective at understanding the challenges they face. We’ve been doing this for over 70 years, since World War II. It started with the world’s first CARE Package® of food for the post-war hungry in Europe. Our work today is as important as ever, we believe that poverty and inequality are historic injustices that we can end within a generation, for good. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.
