The Health Care Improvement Foundation (HCIF) is seeking a full-time Senior Project Manager. This position provides advanced project management support in the design, delivery, and evaluation of programs within HCIF’s community and population health portfolio. The role entails strong capacity for teamwork, the ability to carry out advanced project management tasks independently, a high degree of attention to detail and accountability to project deadlines and deliverables, skill in meeting facilitation and event planning, and excellent oral and written communication skills, and facility with data collection and analysis. At present, this position supports two initiatives:
- Novo Nordisk’s Cities Changing Diabetes, a private/public partnership that works to improve the lives of people living with or at high risk for developing diabetes in cities throughout the world. This position will play a critical role in overseeing Philadelphia’s Faith & Diabetes Initiative, a unique, interfaith learning collaborative focused on enhancing the capacity of communities of faith to address chronic disease through collaboration, health literacy, and peer education.
- Health literacy initiatives focused on building health literacy coalitions at both regional (southeastern Pennsylvania) and state levels.
Candidates for consideration must have a master’ degree in public or community health, health care management, health communication, public affairs, non-profit management, or similar discipline. Individuals should have three to five years of relevant work experience in a health care or community health setting, involving project management and data analysis. Experience with population health, collaborative health care initiatives, chronic disease management, faith-based community health initiatives and/or health communication is preferred. Candidates should also possess excellent time management skills, analytical, oral, and written communications skills, and possess strong attention to detail. Our HCIF team is small; therefore, the candidate will be working closely with a small team on a daily basis and balancing a large network of partners across non-profit, health care, and philanthropic sectors. Competence with webinar platforms (Zoom), infographic platforms, and the use of social media as well as project management tools and Microsoft Office are a must. The starting annual salary for this role is $70,000.
