Meet Benevity

Through giving, volunteering, grantmaking, employee resource groups and micro-actions, we help most of the Fortune 100 brands build better cultures and use their power for good. We’re also one of the first B Corporations in Canada, meaning we’re as committed to purpose as we are to profits. We have people working all over the world, including Canada, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, the United States and more!

We are looking for a Manager of Global Operations to join our dynamic team in Calgary, AB. This role requires operational experience with a global SaaS product as well as a knack for interpreting global regulatory requirements and translating them into simple operational and product workflows.

Benevity’s Global Operations team is driving forward our industry-leading global donation platform and products. We currently have partnerships with twelve foundations/entities around the world and are looking for a savvy, driven, leader to help us continue to grow this network into the next generation global donation platform.

You will play a very key role in driving the strategy and execution of our global infrastructure, including solving for current customers, enabling business growth and ensuring we effectively implement compliant global solutions that solve for the ever-growing complexity of the international giving space.

This role reports directly to the Director of Global Operations and Foundation Partnerships, along with the Manager of Nonprofit Operations (our vetting team). Your team of Global gurus includes four Foundation Specialists and two Global Analysts and is part of the larger Operations team at Benevity, which reports up into our V.P of Operations and Chief Financial Officer (CFO). We are a central team responsible for the client donation funding process, as well as foundation partnership relationship management, oversight and cause disbursements.

What you’ll do:

Manage and lead both our Global Growth and Foundation Partnership teams in support of the following, and other duties as required:

  • Provide guidance on implementing globally complex requirements into operational workflows and product solutions in a scalable, cost-effective manner
