Malaria No More

Senior Business Development Manager

The global malaria campaign has emerged as one the greatest public health success stories in a generation. Now, we need innovations in precision health, financing, advocacy, climate adaptation, gender strategies, and delivery models to achieve our mission of a malaria free world. We are recruiting a highly entrepreneurial individual who can help lead MNM’s growth initiatives in these areas.

Malaria No More is expanding its global impact through a creative growth strategy that seeks to build the foundation for long-term impact in new markets and innovative programmatic areas. This requires developing new strategies and partnerships, and expanding its revenue base with new and diverse funding sources.

Under the leadership of the Managing Director, Strategic Initiatives, the Business Development Manager will be responsible for researching, identifying and pursuing new restricted funding opportunities. This includes cultivating relationships with partners, corporates, institutions, and foundations in order to diversify MNM’s funder base. In addition, the Business Development Manager will take the lead on planning, managing, crafting, and executing proposals, marketing, and events to capture funding.
