Profile

Working at Global Health Strategies means that you’re passionate about social and economic justice, and see these goals as inseparable from public health and global development.

You have ambitious, out-of-the-box ideas and know how to build and motivate teams to bring them to fruition. You’re always seeking a better solution and the next opportunity to drive change. You have cut your teeth in global development or communications, led teams to excellent outcomes and want to push yourself as a leader and mission-driven professional.

You believe in the power of human stories and evidence to change hearts and minds, and you’re at home in both worlds. You’re an excellent written communicator, and building these skills in others excites you. You know that hard work and organization is behind every victory.

Everything is a learning opportunity. You surround yourself with diverse perspectives and people who inspire you to be better. You pay it forward by supporting others. Teams are more seamless, productive, enthusiastic and creative with your leadership. For you, no job is too big, no task too small.

You want a job that’s not a 9-to-5 obligation, but a purpose-driven environment with good food and better people (and the occasional office-wide lip sync video). And we would be thrilled to have you.
