Position description

GlobalGiving is seeking applicants to our Fellows Program to help further our mission and ambitious growth plans. Fellows will have a unique opportunity to learn how a thriving, international NGO operates through practical, hands-on experience with the nuts and bolts of our operations and ample opportunities to explore the broader field of development.

We have fellowship eleven fellowship opportunities in this upcoming cohort. They are:

3 - Vetting and Grants Management Fellows

1 - Disaster Recovery Network Fellow

1 - Program Fellow

1 - Operations Team Fellow

1 - Business Partnerships Fellow

2 - Fellows on the Marketing and Communications Team:

1 - Strategic Initiatives Fellow

You are welcome to apply to multiple fellowships, but please ensure that your application highlights why you would be excellent in that specific role.

The program is a highly selective, full-time service year that will challenge and inspire you, and will require hard work and dedication. You will have the opportunity to explore various areas that interest you, so you can capitalize on your experience. You’ll be a vital contributor to our team—not getting coffee or filing papers all day long.

Here’s a little taste of the kinds of experiences you might have as a GlobalGiving Fellow:

  • Skill-building workshops to improve your understanding of international development, technology startups, social entrepreneurship, philanthropy, disaster response, and crowdfunding.
  • In-depth research and analysis projects around a particular issue area.
  • Training on experimentation, workflow, and querying tools such as Salesforce, Optimizely, MySQL, Metabase, and Zendesk.
  • Career preparation and professional development, including mock interviews and resume review. Previous fellows have used their professional development funds to take coding classes and even learn French!

Who We Are Looking For

While we offer 7 different areas of focus for our fellows, each requiring specific qualifications, our overall selection process for the program is rooted in our values-driven approach to work. We seek candidates who subscribe to our core values:

  • Always Open: Believing that great ideas can come from anyone, anywhere, at any time; approachable and humble, demonstrating sincere appreciation for others and their ideas.
  • Never Settle: Questioning the status quo wisely, and challenging yourself to achieve high goals and expectations.
  • Listen, Act, Learn. Repeat: Demonstrating curiosity about the world around us, and bringing that curiosity into GlobalGiving; experimenting fruitfully, utilizing both success and failure productively; leveraging data and feedback to make better decisions.
  • Committed to WOW: Embodying a spirit of service with customers (internal and external), and delighting in opportunities to interact with them.

In addition, candidates must:

  • Be in the game. You are passionate about international development and onboard with GlobalGiving’s mission.
  • Be an achiever. You can demonstrate standout achievement among your peers.
  • Be adaptable. You perform well in changing environments, with a clear desire to do what it takes to improve and develop your skills.
  • Be an effective collaborator. You proactively maintain relationships in ways that are mutually beneficial.
  • Be able to execute. You set, track, and complete goals without the need for last-minute heroics. You anticipate possible delays and plan around them to maintain ownership and accountability for meeting objectives with high quality and timeliness.
