Beyond Celiac, a national nonprofit organization, seeks a qualified candidate for a full-time position as Director of National Programs and Volunteer Engagement at its Ambler, PA office. This director will support planning and administration of 5K Run/Walk events and other events hosted by Beyond Celiac, serving as a key leader and innovator in the organization.
The Director of National Programs and Volunteer Engagement is accountable for building a nationwide program of successful 5K Run/Walk fundraising events and for establishing an engaged, aligned and productive network of volunteer leaders representing Beyond Celiac in key regions across the country.
The ideal candidate will effectively lead and motivate teams of staff, donors, volunteers, sponsors and other constituencies in executing effective national programs and volunteer engagement for Beyond Celiac and assist in growing the impact and influence of the organization.
The 5K walks will be increased from 3 markets to 6 markets in fiscal 2020 and will rapidly move to additional markets in future years, with the person in this role leading the entire effort and identifying new markets to pursue. Each event must be exceptionally well led – including location selection, organization, promotion and sponsorship – to produce the maximum net dollar benefit to Beyond Celiac and the best possible participant and sponsor engagement.
In conjunction with expanding the national run/walk program, the person in this role will be responsible for leading, organizing and engaging a network of volunteer champions in strategic markets, both in cities where we host 5K Run/Walk events and in other geographic areas. The leaders of this grassroots network will take a lead role in fundraising (working as appropriate with the Director of Corporate Relations), coordination of other volunteer activities, and increasing participation in our patient database, events and campaigns.
Reporting to this role will be a Field Manager of Events to assist with the 5K events work. In addition, the Director of Administration and a Manager of Administration – both of whom will support the incumbent and all other operations of Beyond Celiac – will report to the Director of National Programs and Volunteer Engagement in order to centralize all project management for the organization.
