Join the MeHAF Team!

MeHAF is recruiting for the following two positions:

Program Officer I/II

The Maine Health Access Foundation (MeHAF) is recruiting for a full-time (30-40 hours/week) Program Officer I or II to join our dynamic and mission-driven team.

The Program Officer will develop, manage, and evaluate program activities including grants, policy research, technical assistance, information dissemination, and convening.  

Position details:  This staff person will take a combination of lead and secondary roles in several of the program areas outlined in the new MeHAF Strategic Framework.  Program Officers must have strong organizational, relational, and analytic talents to support program design, implementation, monitoring, and improvement.  Such work relies on working closely with partner organizations, applicants and grantees, requires exceptional interpersonal and cross-cultural skills and an ability to navigate complex systems and structures and the power differential that may exist between organizations, including between a foundation and its applicants and grantees.  Program Officers also contribute to the broader work of the foundation and its growing commitment to health equity by serving as active participants in planning overall foundation activities and working collaboratively with other staff and leadership.  Specific program areas will be assigned based on expertise and interests of new and current team members.  The ideal candidate is a strategic, creative thinker who is adept at cultivating collaborative relationship with diverse groups, and who brings knowledge, capacity, and experiences that broaden those of the MeHAF team.  Subject area expertise is desirable, but more important is the ability to plan, implement, and adapt programs while contributing to MeHAF's ongoing organizational learning and development.

Qualifications:  Bachelor’s degree with five years’ experience in public health or health fields, community organizing, public policy, or community development.  Highly relevant personal or professional experience or an advanced degree may be substituted on a year-for-year basis for educational requirements.  Experience with nonprofit organizations and philanthropy is desirable, as is knowledge of health care delivery and public health.  See the position description for all required core competencies.  

MeHAF is an equal opportunity employer and seeks applicants who will contribute to the diversity of its staff.  The MeHAF office is based in Augusta, and staff lives in a variety of urban and rural communities in southern, central, and coastal Maine.   

Interested applicants should send a cover letter, specifying which areas of MeHAF's new strategic framework are of particular interest and what the applicant would bring to advance achievement of those areas, and resume to Dani Kalian by August 3, 2018.  The position will remain open until filled.

MeHAF is Maine's largest statewide, private health care foundation, with a mission to promote quality health care, especially for those who are uninsured and underserved, and improve the health of everyone in Maine.


Communications Associate

The Maine Health Access Foundation (MeHAF) is recruiting for a full-time (30-40 hours/week) Communications Associate to join our dynamic and mission-driven team.  This is a new position at MeHAF.  Our recent equity capacity and strategic planning processes identified building public commitment to achieve equitable health outcomes and sharing the successes of MeHAF’s diverse grantees as priorities.  

Position details:  The Communications Associate (CA) will help to build and spread a vibrant media and public presence for MeHAF; coordinate development of meaningful and evidence-informed messaging to advance the foundation’s mission; assist with refining brand identity to underscore MeHAF’s commitment to advancing equity; coordinate production and distribution of major print, electronic, and social media products; and ensure a vibrant, up-to-date, and user-friendly MeHAF website.  The CA supports critical functions related to communications, external relations, learning and dissemination, and partner and grantee relationships.  The CA must have both excellent written and oral communication skills and outstanding interpersonal skills.  The CA reports directly to the President & CEO (CEO), and will work closely with the Senior Program Officer who will oversee the CA’s collaborative work with other program staff, and with the Program and Communications Assistant.  The CA will also oversee contracts with diverse experts in areas such as message framing, website development and maintenance, and publication design.  This is an opportunity to help MeHAF to be on the cutting edge of communicating about transformational change rooted in advancing equity.

Qualifications:  Six years’ experience or combined education and experience in communications (including social media), external relations, partnership development, or other relevant field.  Bachelor’s degree and experience in the nonprofit sector or philanthropy desirable.  See the position description for all required core competencies.
