About the position:

The BCCDC Foundation for Public Health (BCCDC Foundation) is seeking qualified candidates for the role of Senior Development Officer. This position will work with the Director of Development to develop and implement fund development strategies that support:

  • The strategic plan and priorities of the BCCDC Foundation;
  • Organizational and financial growth and sustainability;
  • Consistent achievement of the mission, vision and mandate of the BCCDC Foundation;
  • Continued successful growth of the BCCDC Foundation reputation, influence and impact as a public health charity.

About our organization:

The BCCDC Foundation is a registered charity working in partnership with, but distinct from, the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), and other stakeholders to improve population and public health outcomes in BC. Over the last two years, the BCCDC Foundation has undergone critically important planning and development that allowed us to take on an expanded portfolio and grow our reach.

Over the past 18 months, we have found ourselves in an unprecedented situation with the COVID-19 pandemic—we have been able to support pandemic response efforts and are positioned to continue this work to enhance our public health system in BC to prepare for, and respond to, future emerging threats.

We convene, collaborate, and leverage relationships with internal and external partners to drive innovation that advances population and public health for British Columbians. Established to protect and promote health, prevent harm, and prepare for threats by inspiring vision and philanthropy, the BCCDC Foundation envisions people living in health communities protected from infectious disease and environmental health hazards through innovative research and collaborative public health solutions.

Our three priority areas are: reducing harms; addressing threats; and emerging areas, and we support key projects within each priority. As one of the first charities in Canada to set up an Emergency Response Fund for COVID-19, and as a public health charity, the necessary recovery and preparedness work will continue to be a top priority as we look ahead to a post-pandemic world.

The BCCDC Foundation operates as a tax-exempt charity with its own Board and administration; as such, it is an arm’s length organization in place to support the BCCDC and public health broadly. Though a distinct entity, we are embedded within the BCCDC, allowing for unique functional and structural synergies.

We hope you may be as excited about this position and growth opportunity as we are! This is a chance to join a great small but mighty team, who have passion for, and a commitment to, improving population and public health in British Columbia.
