Current Opportunities

Director of Business Development

Business Development

NICHQ (National Institute for Children’s Health Quality) is currently seeking an action-oriented, process-minded, and results-driven Director of Business Development to help drive the organization forward as it builds on its current success and broadens its focus, services and sources of support. Building on its 15 years of success in catalyzing improvement in children’s healthcare, NICHQ is extending its focus to also include the other systems that affect the health and well-being of vulnerable children and families including public health and community resources. NICHQ is also expanding its sources of support from a nearly exclusive focus on grants from federal agencies and foundations to include deliverable-based contracts with public health departments, hospital, and ambulatory care systems.

Our new Director of Business Development will lead this charge, collaborating with the executive team to determine strategic priorities and direction, and owning implementation of the business development process including research, grant writing, and budgeting. This work requires subject matter expertise in children’s health, a good understanding of the financial underpinnings of a non-profit that is funded by government grants and private foundations, and very strong skills in leading teams—both the permanent business development team and the ad-hoc teams of experts (MDs, PhDs, MPHs, etc.) that are formed to generate and respond to specific opportunities.
