The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with Orbis International in the search for a Senior Manager, Major Gifts.

Reporting to the Director of Development, the Senior Manager, Major Gifts will have ownership of a substantial portfolio of major donors and prospects with the goal of growing revenue so that Orbis International can continue to increase its impact in fighting avoidable blindness. The Senior Manager, Major Gifts will partner with the Director of Development, while working closely with members of the U.S. Development team and liaise with colleagues across different departments at the headquarters office in New York and Orbis offices worldwide.

Orbis International is a non-profit that brings people together to fight avoidable blindness. With its network of partners, it mentors, trains, and inspires local teams to fight blindness in their communities. Orbis believes that no one should live a life of unnecessary blindness, simply because of where they were born. Its mission is to use its amazing network of partners, supporters, staff, and sector leading volunteers to empower local communities with the skills and resources necessary to fight blindness on their own. It works alongside eye teams in communities to provide training and guidance to leave a long-term eye care legacy that will restore vision for generations to come. Orbis builds its networks on trust and commitment and seeks to collaborate with corporate partners, fellow NGOs, and local hospitals. It has made a promise to local eye teams to always strive for excellent, sustainable results that will suit its local partners’ needs.

Training and collaboration is at the very heart of everything Orbis does. With the help of its world-leading volunteers, it provides training to all types of healthcare workers – from doctors and nurses in regional hospitals to district leaders and teachers in remote areas. With the help of its amazing partners and supporters Orbis has been a pioneer in the prevention and treatment of blindness for nearly 40 years. It works where the need for eye care is greatest and where it can do the most good. It has conducted training projects in over 92 countries, over 78 with the Flying Eye Hospital, where it works closely with governments and health ministries. It has long-term projects around the world across countries including India, Bangladesh, Nepal, China, Vietnam, Ethiopia, South Africa, Ghana, Zambia, Cameroon, Peru, Mongolia, and Indonesia. Orbis has positively impacted the lives of millions of adults and children enabling them to see the world clearly and reach their full potential.

Orbis International recognizes and values the intersecting identities people bring to the organization. As a global organization, Orbis welcomes qualified applicants who reflect the five Orbis values of Accountability, Caring, Commitment, Excellence, and Trust. Orbis encourages qualified applicants from diverse backgrounds, cultures, lived experience with their mission, and/or those belonging to communities that have been historically excluded and/or marginalized to apply. Frequently cited statistics show that members of structurally marginalized and/or underrepresented groups apply to jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. Orbis encourages candidates to break that statistic and to apply.

A bachelor's degree is required for this position as is at least five years of relevant work experience. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of Orbis International as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the prospectus.

This is a fully remote opportunity. The Senior Manager may work from a remote location when not traveling for Orbis or meeting with donors. For those who prefer to work in an office setting some or part of the time, Orbis International's New York office has temporary and permanent desk solutions for employees that can accommodate those preferences.
