CityHealth, an initiative of the de Beaumont Foundation and Kaiser Permanente, is seeking nominations and applications for a National Director of Partnerships. CityHealth helps cities thrive through a set of policies that improve people’s day-to-day quality of life, well-being, and health. These policies are based in research, backed by qualified experts, and shown to have bipartisan support, making them rich opportunities for cities to pursue. CityHealth currently supports 40 cities and will be expanding to over 75 cities in 2020.  

The National Director of Partnerships will manage the day-to-day activities of the CityHealth initiative, be closely involved in its strategic development, and oversee the continued evolution and expansion of the initiative. The Director will work closely with local leaders across the country to support them in advancing CityHealth policies. This may include facilitating the provision of technical assistance, sharing best practices among cities, and providing targeted funding to local and national partners. The ideal candidate will have a keen understanding of how to advance policy change at the city or municipal level, the flexibility to pivot as new opportunities emerge, and a passion for the diversity of issues and people represented in urban areas across the United States. The new Director will have the flexibility to work independently, as well as part of a team, be skilled in relationship and consensus-building, and have experience working with or managing diverse coalitions. The Director will be deeply committed to CityHealth’s mission and will have a minimum of ten years relevant work experience with an advanced degree in law, public policy, or public health.
