Worksafe is looking for a Development Manager to support our mission and help us grow.
Our new Development Manager will help us develop and implement a more robust fundraising plan, assist in grant writing, and support our external communications efforts. The ideal candidate has experience with fundraising and writing grant proposals, is an excellent communicator, resourceful, well-organized, tech savvy, has a passion for workers’ rights, and doesn’t mind rolling up sleeves to pitch in at a small office. This is a full-time position; however, we are open to more seasoned applicants interested in a part-time opportunity.
Worksafe is a California-based nonprofit that advocates for the basic right of all workers to a safe and healthy workplace. We advocate for strong worker health and safety laws and effective remedies for injured workers, engage in campaigns with worker organizations and activist networks to eliminate toxic chemical and other workplace hazards, and watchdog government agencies to ensure they are protecting workers.
In addition to advocacy and policy work, we are a support center for California legal aid organizations whose clients face workplace health or safety hazards, suffer injuries, or face retaliation at work for exercising their rights under health and safety laws. We provide legal aid groups with training, technical assistance, and litigation support, improving access to justice for low-wage and immigrant workers, workers most vulnerable to having their rights violated or suffering workplace injuries.
Compensation is commensurate with experience. Worksafe is an equal opportunity employer -- all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Women and people of color are strongly encouraged to apply.
To apply, please send a cover letter and resume in PDF or .docx format to David Granberg, Fiscal Operations Administrator, at email@example.com. If we consider you for an interview we will request references and a writing sample. Applications will be accepted until position is filled. No phone calls please.
