Description The National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) is currently seeking a Development Director to lead our fundraising and development activities. This is a perfect opportunity for someone who is persistent by nature, and who views development work as a race to win and a puzzle of human dynamics to solve.-- A successful applicant must enjoy building relationships, have a strong foundational knowledge in education policy, write persuasively, be organized to a fault, and believe strongly in the work of our organization. Practical development experience is not nearly as important as possessing these personal attributes all of which make for a great fundraiser. This is a great opportunity not only for someone who has made development work a career, but also for someone who wants to gain the essential skills necessary to one day lead a nonprofit organization.-- Organization Description NCTQ believes every child deserves effective teachers and every teacher deserves the opportunity to be effective. We're placing two big bets on the smartest, surest path to get there: 1) improving teacher preparation, and 2) improving teacher policies and practices to support the recruitment, development, and retention of effective teachers.-- We are a nonpartisan, not-for-profit research and policy organization deeply committed to strengthening and diversifying the teaching profession.

S/he will expand and diversify NCTQ's donor base/pipeline and work closely with other team members to secure funding for new initiatives. It is expected that the amount raised by NCTQ will increase in future years as the Development Director systematically and effectively strengthens the organization's overall fundraising capacity. The Development Director will serve as a key leadership team member and an active participant in making strategic decisions affecting NCTQ. The successful candidate will help forge new relationships to build NCTQ's visibility, impact, and financial resources.
