ABOUT LEADING EDGE
Since its founding, Leading Edge has become the central address for talent and culture in the Jewish nonprofit sector, changing the way the Jewish community thinks and talks about talent development and organizational culture. Our flagship program areas focus on supporting and developing CEOs and Executive Teams, strengthening partnerships between board leaders and professionals, and helping to create great workplace culture.
WHY THIS ROLE MATTERS
Leading Edge just completed a strategic refresh process that both affirmed our current focus areas and gives us the latitude to explore new ideas and approaches to fulfill our mission. We believe there are many new frontiers to discover and test as we continue to support the Jewish nonprofit sector to be the best it can be. Reporting directly to the President and CEO, the Director of Special Projects will work across departments to launch and implement the “first mile” of new projects and play a key role in board and stakeholder engagement.
Though Leading Edge has grown to a team of 13, we are still small and nimble. This role will give us the needed capacity to be opportunistic, to take new risks and to partner more effectively with other organizations and our board of directors. This role will be a strategic collaborator and project manager to the President and CEO and will support the Senior Team and the rest of the organization in designing and leading research and development projects; devising new strategies to engage the board and other stakeholders; and serve as an intra-organizational thought partner.
Some projects this role may tackle include:
Research and Development - 50%
Board Engagement - 25%
Partnership Development - 25%
You should have:
