The Workforce Development team works across all departments to support strategic fundraising at BAYADA. We seek new funding opportunities and support existing relationships between BAYADA and regional, national, public, and private funders. The Workforce Development team leads prospective funder research, identification and assessment of funding opportunities, pitch development, grant reporting, project research and development, and proposal writing and submissions.
Reporting to the Division Director and Director of Workforce Development, the Grant Writer serves as a critical point of coordination and operational support for BAYADA’s Workforce Development team, practice staff, and executive leadership. We expect the Grant Writer to collaborate closely with colleagues and contribute as needed to execute the team’s goals and deliverables. The Grant Writer will bring a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and will be excited to work in an impact-oriented and highly collaborative environment.
