Within the walls of Phi Delta Theta’s General Headquarters, you can find a roster of individuals who care deeply for the Fraternity and spend their working hours helping to take Phi Delta Theta to new heights. Our family-like culture provides for a valuable work experience in many different areas within the Fraternity. Below you can find information and the application process for our open positions.
Senior Vice President for Advancement
Reporting directly to the President of the Foundation, the Senior Vice President for Advancement serves as a key member of the executive team alongside the Chief Operating Officer, the Foundation Trustees, and a dedicated team of development professionals and support staff to lead the planning, policy development, budgeting, implementation, measurement, and reporting for a comprehensive, donor-centric development program that attracts significant annual, major, and planned gifts to advance the mission of the Fraternity.
Phi Delta Theta strongly believes that the SVP should be a member of the Fraternity who shares the passion and commitment to The Bond that seeks to mold each brother into a greater version of himself. The SVP will be responsible to raise philanthropic support for the funding objectives of the Phi Delt 2020 Strategic Plan and to complete the current Building on the Bond Campaign to create a $20 million endowment.
Qualified candidates should have at least 7 years of executive-level professional fundraising experience, especially in the area of major gifts, and be able to locate in or around Oxford, OH at the Phi Delta Theta General Headquarters on the campus of Miami University. Phi Delta Theta offers a competitive compensation and benefits package.
GHQ Intern – Summer 2017
Have you ever wondered what goes on at GHQ? Would you like to live in Oxford for two and a half months during the summer and experience Mother Miami? Are you looking for a way to get involved with the Fraternity beyond your campus?
If you answered yes to these questions, we have an opportunity that promises to be one of the greatest summer experiences of your college years. The GHQ Intern Program is back and offers an experience that gives undergraduates the opportunity to work behind the scenes at the General Headquarters. The experience can also preview what it might be like to work at GHQ post-graduation or to better understand how the Fraternity works as a future alumnus member and volunteer.
The selected candidate will help execute the 2017 summer conferences, participate in various educational sessions, and take on a number of GHQ projects, all while gaining valuable professional experience in the nonprofit, association, event planning and fundraising industries.
The Fraternity is currently seeking candidates for its paid internship program that will occur between May 16 and August 4.
Applications are due February 28.
The Leadership Consultant Experience
The Phi Delta Theta Leadership Consultant experience is the embodiment of becoming the greatest version of yourself. The experience allows you to travel throughout North America while helping undergraduate Phis further their personal and chapters’ paths to greatness. You may spend time recruiting the Fraternity’s newest members through its expansion efforts, and in the process, hone your own sales and marketing skillset. You may also spend time inspiring new visions for our 190+ chapters, developing the skill set of an organizational consultant and regional manager. While on your leadership consultant journey you will interact with volunteers and staff on a daily basis exposing you to a wide variety of careers. Past consultants have gone into an array of fields from teaching and business to healthcare and law. Each consultant has had the opportunity to utilize the diverse network of connections gained through his experience.
Through the experience as a leadership consultant you will develop vital professional skills that are beneficial to any career. You will learn to build rapport, manage time, communicate effectively, establish priorities and much more. The true uniqueness of the job comes from the opportunity to meet many types of people and experience great colleges, landmarks, touring acts, and sports teams, all during your time “on the road.” This is why every current and former leadership consultant will tell you that applying is the first step towards a life changing experience!
We recently changed our process to give our most interested candidates the opportunity to secure employment well before graduation. If you would like to apply, please submit the application below by September 30 for early consideration. Candidates can apply until November 15, however, there is a chance that all positions will be filled by then.
