Director of Strategic Partnerships

The Pembina Institute is seeking a Director of Strategic Partnerships to join our senior management team and fill two key roles:

  • Reporting to the Executive Director, lead a team of regional fund developers and their operational and administrative support team.
  • Lead fundraiser for the Ontario region and for the Institute’s annual unGALA event on an interim basis, with a view to hiring an additional person into this role no later than early 2018.

The Pembina Institute’s recent accomplishments in translating advocacy and compelling ideas into progressive climate and energy policy have put the organization on a growth trajectory. Funders are investing in larger, longer-term partnerships with us. This is an ideal time to seek a natural leader with the vision, experience, creativity and discipline to take us to the next level.

Reporting to the Executive Director, and working closely with the other senior managers and regional Strategic Partnership leads, this experienced and well-connected individual will drive partnership strategy, ensure consistency of approach, maintain accountability, and offer innovative flair to the Institute’s fund development efforts across the country and internationally, as well as across donor types, meticulously stewarding and growing our funder portfolio. Demonstrating a willingness to support the Pembina Institute’s mission, the successful candidate will be high performing, goal oriented, and excited by big fundraising opportunities and targets. Understanding the relationship between strategy and revenue development, this individual will insightfully leverage the interplay among strategy, communication and donor engagement.
