The ideal candidate for this position has at least five years’ experience aligning the business needs of fundraising and program staff with Salesforce functionality, has engaged a diverse set of stakeholders in implementing CRM tools, and is comfortable training users and championing CRM as a strategy for improving our shared work. 

The CRM Manager will report to the Director of Systems and Administration and will work closely with our development team, public affairs team, and other stakeholders across CPD/A to improve our overall CRM infrastructure.
