Associate Director, Development – Strategic Partnerships (Vancouver)

The Pembina Institute is seeking an experienced and highly motivated development professional to join its national Strategic Partnerships Team in Vancouver. The Associate Director will lead fundraising and relationship development efforts in partnership with the B.C. team and collaborate with staff in Alberta and Ontario on national funding requests. In recognition of the Pembina Institute’s recent accomplishments, the organization is on a growth trajectory and funders are investing in larger, longer-term partnerships. This momentum makes it an ideal time join our dynamic development team.

Reporting to the Director of Strategic Partnerships in Toronto, and working closely with the Regional Director of B.C., the Associate Director will meticulously manage a portfolio of funders, enjoy working closely with content experts in the development of proposals, and have the ability to complete a wide variety of tasks in a rapidly changing environment.

Roles and Responsibilities

  • Lead fund development activities in B.C. by securing commitments from a combination of foundations, industry partners, governments and individuals.
  • Work closely with the Director of Strategic Partnerships, and the Associate Director’s counterpart in Alberta, on proposals and pitches that are national in scope (or have dual interests in either B.C., Alberta or Ontario) with a view to maximizing potential support and broadening engagement with the organization.
  • Work closely with content staff to ensure development opportunities are both targeted towards core areas of work and compelling.
  • Coordinate and engage in prospect and donor calls, including preparing meeting materials and conducting all necessary follow up.
  • Manage relationships with all prospects and donors with a view to building strong affiliations and secure financial support as well as involvement as volunteers and advisors.
  • Work closely with a high-performing Communications team in the development of materials such as proposals, presentations, communications and stewardship reports.
  • Contribute to the team’s goal of developing a more predictable and reliable revenue stream by growing the number and size of multi-year sources of revenue.
  • Identify, recruit, and manage senior volunteers to assist in fundraising activities, as appropriate.
