Senior Officer of Operations and Organizational Effectiveness

The SAGE Fund (SAGE) is a collaborative fund that seeks to strengthen the human rights accountability of powerful economic actors and address critical gaps in protection created by the global economy. The organization does this work by spurring innovation in partnership with grantees to hold all economic actors, particularly non-state actors, accountable for human rights violations; building knowledge, skills, and leveraging capacity (with a focus on the Global South) to analyze key challenges, fashion strategies in response to those challenges, and mobilize new coalitions and constituencies; and creating greater leverage within the donor and NGO communities by building consensus and an impactful agenda for the field.


At a critical time of global need and organizational growth, SAGE is seeking a Senior Officer of Operations and Organizational Effectiveness who will strengthen the day-to-day operations and grants management for the SAGE Fund. The Senior Officer will be a key internal leader in supporting continued growth, culture building, and enhancing the organization’s financial and operations infrastructure and partnership with New Venture Fund, SAGE’s fiscal sponsor. Additionally, the Senior Officer will oversee broad aspects of talent management across SAGE’s small, dispersed team of 4 staff and various consultants, and help assess and build SAGE’s capacity, systems, and processes to more effectively support the mission. These may include: evaluation and learning, communications, and information technology. The Senior Officer will partner closely with the Director to chart the SAGE Fund’s future growth and strategic response to increasing demand for the organization’s model, services, and niche in the field.

The ideal candidate will be a forward-looking and flexible thinker with the ability to quickly gather and synthesize information for the Director as well as SAGE staff and its Advisory Board, to drive rigorous planning and decision-making processes. The new Senior Officer will be a people leader who seeks to enhance organizational culture and connections across teams and staff. They will also be a strategic finance and operations professional with at least 5-7 years’ experience overseeing finances in a nonprofit setting.
