CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Icon Heading

Operations Director / Administration Leader 

Full-time

Are you a highly organized team player who loves optimizing operational efficiencies and finding ways to work smarter, not harder? Do you have a positive outlook, self-assurance, and a good sense of humor? Do you love finding solutions to challenges and feel that no task is too big or too small to take on? We would love to hear from you if you answered yes to these questions! The Cancer Foundation for New Mexico is hiring an operational leader who will be a pivotal part of our small but mighty team. We want to hear from you if you have financial acumen, are tech-savvy, or have a strong business background. We want to hear from you if you have deep experience in non-profits. We are open to diverse backgrounds, so if you fit any of these categories (or even if you don’t!), please send us your resume and a cover letter telling us why you are interested in joining our team as our operational leader and what you can bring to the Foundation given your unique background and experience.

The Cancer Foundation for New Mexico is a local, independent non-profit established in 2003 by a group of oncologists in response to the unique needs of cancer patients throughout the northern part of the state. It was discovered that some patients, once diagnosed with cancer, were forgoing treatment because they couldn’t afford the costs associated with travel to and from the treatment center located in Santa Fe. Despite programs being available to cover medical expenses, non-medical costs posed the greatest barriers – like the ability to pay for gas or overnight lodging, especially when treatment is administered over days or weeks.

The solution to this heartbreaking problem was establishing an organization that could identify and mitigate the obstacles to treatment faced by so many northern New Mexico residents. The Cancer Foundation for New Mexico was created specifically to address the overlooked but critically important needs of financially challenged cancer patients and their families.

Today, the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico has expanded its services from mileage reimbursement and overnight lodging to include food assistance, a growing network of support groups, and a team of trained volunteers to assist patients during treatment. We are the only local organization providing this level of support to cancer patients throughout northern New Mexico. No patient who qualifies for our assistance is turned away.
