Director of Development

Company: Henderson Collegiate
Location: Henderson
Posted on: May 3, 2021

Job Description:

Henderson Collegiate is a mission-driven public college preparatory school located in rural Henderson, NC with an unrelenting focus on character development and student achievement. We believe in 51% character and 49% academics, as we will never sacrifice a moment to teach our students character traits that will help them become great people.

Our school serves students that come from traditionally underserved communities (approximately 85% receive free or reduced-price meals, and about 94% are students of color). However, we consistently rank in the top 9.7% of all NC schools and the top 1.3% of all NC Title I schools. Henderson Collegiate is committed to the idea that all students can learn and create a future for themselves that is full of opportunities. We know they can do this by attending and graduating from the colleges of their choice. Our students are proving what is possible and to date, 100% of our seniors have been accepted into a 4-year college or university.

We are both a team and family who leverage passionate people to be the best teachers and leaders that they can be. We believe in the idea that all of our staff members are school teachers, as opposed to classroom teachers, meaning that no matter your role, we are all willing to do whatever it takes to support all Henderson Collegiate students. We work together to make what most people say is impossible, happen.

Who You Are

  • An A-Player. Top talent knows top talent. Period.
  • A serial optimist. You've got a deep, personal commitment to the mission of Henderson Collegiates Schools, and a genuine belief that all students can achieve academic excellence, regardless of race or socioeconomic status. You've got a "healthy rage" about the state of public education in the rural South - and you want to be a part of a team that is doing something about it every single day.
  • A details maven. Nothing gets past you. You don't drop balls, miss deadlines, or forget to respond to someone's inquiry. You track timelines, data, and information in an organized and systematic fashion. You follow up with people to follow up with you - whether it's planning a flawless event or executing a thorough grant report or giving pitch, you amaze and wow people with your superhuman eye for the little things.
  • A customer service enthusiast. You know that first impressions matter. You care deeply about how others experience the organizations you care about. You will go above and beyond to make sure people have the information and resources they need to be successful.
  • A driver of results. You've demonstrated ability to drive results in the pursuit of ambitious goals, and you combine your exceptional strategic, analytical, and critical thinking skills with your penchant to use data to drive decision-making to achieve impressive outcomes. You know that inputs are important - but at the end of the day, only outputs matter.
  • A systems builder. You're unfazed by ambiguity, and thrive in situations where you get to build something out of nothing, or create order out of chaos. You want to do work that's never been done before, better than anyone's ever done it.
  • An entrepreneurial learner. You are a self-directed go-getter. You take initiative, generate ideas/solutions to problems, operate with a growth mindset, and seek opportunities for feedback.

The Fine Print

  • Required: All candidates must have a Bachelors degree.
  • At least 2 years of experience working in external partnership-building and fundraising in the nonprofit sector (highly preferred)
  • Previous experience teaching in low-income schools or strong, demonstrated interest in K-12 public education (highly preferred)
  • Salary is competitive and commensurate based on experience, with an anticipated range of $60,000-$66,000 per year. Additionally, Henderson Collegiate offers a full benefits package. Staff members receive a laptop computer and are provided with necessary technology and software.
