Location: Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada
If you are an executive leader with a deep belief in every child’s intrinsic value and potential as a beautiful creation of God, looking to use your experience to make smart, evidence-based decisions with an organization invested in breaking the cycle of poverty and disability for children in the world’s poorest communities, we are looking for you.
Hope and Healing International:
Hope and Healing International cares deeply that girls and boys with impairments in the poorest communities of the world live healthier, happier, longer lives. We know from evidence and experience that too many of these children are sick, dying, lonely, uneducated and abused. They are forgotten again and again by their communities, their governments, and too often by development organizations.
As Christians, we believe in the intrinsic value and God-given potential of every child. Our programs are child-centred. We partner with children, families, communities and local governments to ensure more kids with disabilities have healthy bodies, learning minds and resilient spirits.
Reporting to the Board, the ED will be responsible for leading Hope and Healing International to achieve the Board-established Ends of the organization, ensuring continued and growing impact on the lives of vulnerable children, donor stewardship, financial sustainability, and a healthy high-performing team culture.
Supported by a strong senior Leadership Team, the ED will work collaboratively to implement a Board-approved strategic plan and see these priorities through to direct positive impact for children with disabilities living in poverty. Hope and Healing International is in the final year of its three-year “Choose Hope 2023” strategic cycle. Our new ED will be empowered to implement the new Board-approved three-year strategic plan, called Child Hope 2026.
Key Areas of Accountability:
The ED will work collaboratively with the Board and Leadership Team to advance the strategic direction of Hope and Healing International. Initially, the ED will ensure that the Board-approved three-year strategic plan is implemented, overseeing strong operational plans and impact reporting mechanisms. Within 18 months of the successful launch of the strategy, the ED will turn attention to refining and reimagining the vision and preparing for the next strategic cycle.
The ED will be responsible for building and maintaining a purpose-driven, results-oriented, continuously learning culture. The ED will model the values of the organization: valuing all people as Jesus does, encouraging an understanding of Christian faith that drives staff and partners to acts of love, putting the most vulnerable children first, recognizing the ability and potential in all children, and communicating honestly and openly.
The ED is responsible for the financial health and sustainability of the organization. Reporting regularly to the Board and Finance Committee, the ED will work closely with the Chief Financial Officer and broader Leadership Team to ensure that annual revenue goals and expense budgets are responsibly forecasted and met. The ED is expected to have strong financial and business acumen.
Partnerships and Fundraising
As the leader of Hope and Healing International, the ED has ultimate accountability for success in fundraising and awareness-raising and needs to effectively communicate a compelling vision of the organization’s work to a variety of supporters and partners – individuals, business owners, government officials, and peer organizations. The ED will work closely with the marketing teams to inspire, challenge, excite and thank potential and current donors. The ED will represent Hope and Healing International within the Canadian and global context, helping to highlight and create a sense of urgency around the conditions and the lack of services faced by children with disability in the poorest communities of the world. Significant experience is required for success in this role.
