Executive Director

Helping Hands, located in Boston, MA, is seeking an energetic and creative Executive Director to lead the organization as they reshape and redirect the strategic vision to providing life-long care to its service monkeys.


The Executive Director is responsible for the overall management of the organization including staff leadership, financial planning and operations, collaborating with the Board of Directors, and serving as the public face of the organization in the media and other public venues. As the strategic and operational leader of the organization, the Executive Director reports to the Board of Directors, manages a staff of eleven full-time employees, and works to realize the needs of the organization’s service monkeys as represented by the Director of Monkey Care. The Executive Director will lead a dedicated staff and partner with volunteer leadership to guide the organization through a transition in mission focus that concentrates on providing a postservice home for the aging monkeys in its care. This transition will require a new branding and communications strategy, ensuring that the messaging shifts to match the new vision. Working closely with the Board and staff, the Executive Director will develop a new branding and communications strategy and implement fundraising efforts that support Helping Hands’ annual operations. The Executive Director will play a key leadership role in a capital campaign effort to renovate the training facility into a space that will accommodate the monkeys’ lifelong needs, which is currently in the silent phase. It will also be important to assess the organization’s longterm goals and explore opportunities to expand the mission. The ideal candidate will bring prior experience leading an organization through significant organizational change. Expertise in fundraising, staff management, financial planning, and communications will be necessary for success. Prior capital campaign experience will be an asset.
