NoVo is hiring: Interim Chief Operating Officer
Starting: Mid-June 2019 to early July 2019
Term: full-time position for at least six and up to nine months
Location: NoVo Foundation office, Brooklyn, NY
NoVo seeks an experienced Chief Operating Officer (COO) to lead and oversee the Foundation’s operations for an interim period during the parental leave of our current COO, Kelly Merryman.
This interim role offers a challenging and exciting opportunity to maintain and elevate an already outstanding operational infrastructure. Working with a committed and skilled staff team, and a “kitchen cabinet” of long-time financial and legal counsel and consultants, the interim COO will oversee NoVo’s financial strategy and fiscal functions, IT, facilities, and administrative operations, as well as being the Foundation’s point person for key special projects, which currently includes leading our coordination of the Women’s Building initiative, and managing the final stages of the transition to our new offices in Brooklyn.
The successful candidate will bring significant experience as a seasoned foundation or social sector COO or Operations Director -- or as a CEO/Executive Director with deep operations knowledge -- in an organization whose budget, size, and complexity of operations are comparable to those of NoVo Foundation.
