Overview

The Role

Meteorite is looking for a dynamic and inspiring senior leader to build and lead a growing practice in health and workplace safety. The Managing Director will have primary, day-to-day responsibility for our signature Health Action Alliance initiative, as well as oversee a growing portfolio of projects in workplace safety and community health. This is a new role in the organization, which offers an immediate opportunity to begin building the future of Meteorite.

The ideal candidate is a visionary self-starter who has the leadership and management experience needed to manage a growing team; hire, mentor and coach team members; and build upon the company’s strong track record of impact across a growing portfolio of health-related projects and programs. Candidates must have relevant skills and existing relationships, and a commitment to working collaboratively in a fast-paced, rapidly-growing entrepreneurial environment.

As Managing Director, you will help set the direction and purpose of our Health & Safety practice as part of Meteorite’s broader corporate mission and strategy. You will:

  • Establish and build upon an existing culture of inclusion, integrity, respect and support. This includes investing time in getting to know the individual members of your team holistically; becoming conversant with their strengths and career aspirations; and leveraging 1:1 coaching to help each member build and expand their strengths to become even more successful.
  • Articulate a clear vision for the Health & Safety practice that reflects our commitment to excellence and impact. Coach team members to communicate that vision with a consistent voice that’s aligned with our values.
  • Engage our clients, advisory council members, partners and other stakeholders to set a strategic direction for our Health & Safety practice that will improve workplace health and safety, advance health equity and strengthen relationships between business and public health.
  • Lead the creation of program work plans that will establish and deliver on client expectations. Build on Meteorite’s trusted relationships with our clients and manage client expectations through regular contact.
  • Establish and oversee a budget for the Health Action Alliance and other projects within the Health & Safety practice.
  • Develop strategic partnerships with business leaders, public health organizations and nongovernmental organizations that can contribute to our programming, widen our impact and advance our organizational mission.
  • Collaborate with your practice group, as a team, to identify and implement projects to increase the group’s overall morale; enhance the visibility of the group across workplace health and safety professionals and organizations; and position the team as a market leader in social impact.
  • Identify thought leadership opportunities for Meteorite, the Health Action Alliance and our growing portfolio of health-and safety-related projects, garnering positive recognition of the firm, our team, our work and our clients. Represent Meteorite and Health Action Alliance in media and thought leadership opportunities.
  • Identify and cultivate opportunities for future projects for the firm, working with Meteorite’s co-founders to develop proposals and pitch new business.
  • Stay apprised of the latest environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) news and trends, bringing forward best-in-class strategies and approaches from the business community that can be replicated in Meteorite programming or events.
  • Participate as a member of the agency’s Leadership Team, collaborating closely with Meteorite’s co-founders and other senior staff to scale the organization in a way that’s aligned with our values and our commitment to exceptional quality and impact.

Your Mindset and Experience

  • 15+ years of prior work experience in workplace health and safety, social impact or public health, ideally with communications experience.
  • A gifted strategist with strong attention to detail and a passion for building coalitions to help solve big social challenges.
  • Demonstrated experience as a strategic partner to clients and senior leaders, with an ability and willingness to offer sound advice and feedback – as well as an ability to coordinate efforts of various teams to arrive at and present a coherent strategy.
  • Excellent managerial and organizational abilities with a proven track record leading diverse, high-performing teams.
  • A leader who’s committed to building a dynamic, supportive and deeply collaborative workplace culture.
  • An exceptional writer and speaker, with experience writing for and presenting to clients and partners at all levels. Superior ability to write in a journalistic style that is customary for corporate and external publications.
  • A confident self-starter who thrives in a dynamic, entrepreneurial environment.
  • An independent and collaborative team player, creative thinker and problem-solver who is excited to take on a wide variety of roles in a rapidly growing organization.
  • A deeply curious learner, always looking to grow and stay current with the topics most important to our firm and our clients.
