Nonprofit Career Round-Up: 8/15/2011

There was some sad news in the nonprofit sector this weekend: Peter Goldberg, the CEO of Families International, passed away after sufferring a massive heart attack.  He was 63.  Our thoughts go out to his friends, family, and colleagues.  If you have time, I'd urge you to read more about Peter Goldberg.  I never met him myself, but he sounded like a remarkable man.

  • Director of Human Resources at National Nurses United: The California Nurses Association/National Nurses United ("CNA/NNU") is seeking an experienced Human Resources Director to manage the Human Resources Department and direct human resource functions serving a national staff of more than 200 employees.  (My Take: I had recently heard that these types of positions were becoming more popular, so expect some heavy competition for this one)
  • Director of Development at Florida Immigrant Advovacy Center: Director of Development will be responsible for fund raising, strategic planning and public relations functions for the organization. Under supervision of the Chief Operating Officer, the Director of Development is responsible for planning, implementing, and managing a comprehensive plan for raising operating funds and diversifying the funding sources to include corporations, foundations, major individual supporters, direct mail efforts, and special events.  (My Take: Please note that they list an Advanced Degree as a plus.  This isn't always the case, but when a job description lists something as a "plus," it usually means it is a quality they would really like.)
  • Chief Operating Officer at The Trudeau Institute: The Trudeau Institute, Inc. is seeking a Chief Operating Officer. This position is responsible for the executive oversight of the Institute’s scientific and business strategies. The COO will ensure that sufficient human, financial, technological, informational, and material resources are available for the success of the Institute’s business relationships, organizational structures, and motivational schemes and processes.  (My Take: This is a very high level position, as you might imagine.  You should have an extensive medical background for this position.)
