The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) and its employees embrace their commitment to its core values. These core values are the pillars on which CFF stand and will continue to sustain us as we move forward.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis, and one of the most innovative and successful organizations of its kind, is seeking a talented Strategy Lead to join our team in Bethesda, MD on externship for a period of four to six months.
The Foundation’s pioneering “venture philanthropy” investment model has dramatically accelerated drug development and care in CF. Through the Foundation’s efforts, the life expectancy of a child with CF has doubled in the last 30 years.
The Foundation is at a critical inflection point. We are developing a new strategic plan to articulate a bold ambition across all aspects of our mission, including drug development, clinical care, policy and access, and community engagement. Our early investments have recently resulted in unprecedented financial returns that will enable us to redouble our efforts.
In this context, we are building a best-in-class strategy team to help us define our future. You will work closely with leadership to advance our strategic agenda, driving high-priority initiatives that will make a real difference for people with CF. This role will report directly to the Chief of Strategy, a former Bain consultant.
If you’re creative, incisive, collaborative, and motivated by our cause, we want to hear from you.
As an extern on the strategy team, the Strategy Lead will work closely with leadership to advance the Foundation’s strategic agenda and generate insights to drive mission-critical initiatives. Bringing expertise in advanced problem-solving, analysis, stakeholder management, and communication, the Strategy Lead will build tools and develop recommendations to support colleagues in making data-driven decisions that best support people with CF.
