Healthy Greater Newark Healthcare Coalition
About Greater Newark Healthcare Coalition (GNHCC): GNHCC works to create health equity for residents of the Greater Newark region by improving healthcare access and quality and by integrating healthcare with other anchor systems such as education, workforce development, housing and food and economic supports. Chief strategies include (1) engaging in health policy planning and advocacy through data collection, analysis and dissemination, best practice research, and public education and (2) collaborating to develop initiatives aimed at identifying and eliminating health disparities and other barriers that lead to poor health outcomes.
Position Summary: The Chief of Staff (COS) to the Executive Director is a critically important role, enabling the Executive Director to work most effectively with internal and external stakeholders and fulfill commitments to the Coalition’s partners, funders, and the Board of Directors. The COS will serve as a strategist, consultant and implementer as well as oversee streamlined activities within the organization based on the priorities of the Executive Director. The COS will serve as a liaison between staff, management team members and the Executive Director ensuring that the Office of the Executive Director works to its highest potential and the organization is poised to meet its annual goals and targets. This is not an administrative role (although administrative tasks are part of the role) -- it is a highly strategic and facilitative one that requires a combination of focus and flexibility, as well as a willingness to play an active, behind-the-scenes role. The role requires a highly resourceful individual with strong emotional intelligence, self-motivation, and strong communication and analytical skills.
