    As a prerequisite, the successful candidate must believe in the core values of excellence and be driven by mission and vision. Beyond that, we are seeking a candidate that has proven experience in scaling a multi-site organization and a demonstrated ability to both lead and build the capabilities of a driven, bright, diverse team.

    The successful candidate will most likely have had management experience with a leading company. As noted, this is an organization driven by the values of its people, so experience in managing a “values-driven” organization will be highly prized. Additional requirements are:

    • Results-proven track record of exceeding goals and a bottom-line orientation; evidence of the ability to consistently make good decisions through a combination of analysis, wisdom, experience, and judgment; high level of business acumen including successful P&L management; the ability to balance the delivery of programs against the realities of a budget; and problem solving, project management, and creative resourcefulness
    • Strategic Vision and Agility-ability to think strategically, anticipate future consequences and trends, and incorporate them into the organizational plan
    • Capacity Building-ability to effectively build organization and staff capacity, developing a top-notch workforce and the processes that ensure the organization runs smoothly
    • Leadership and Organization-exceptional capacity for managing and leading people; a team builder who has experience in scaling up organizations; ability to connect staff both on an individual level and in large groups; capacity to enforce accountability, develop and empower top-notch leaders from the bottom up, lead from the top down, cultivate entrepreneurship, and learn the strengths and weaknesses of the team so as to put people in a position to succeed
    • Action Oriented-enjoys working hard and looks for challenges; able to act and react as necessary, even if limited information is available; not afraid to take charge of a situation; can overcome resistance to leadership and take unpopular stands when necessary
    • General Management-thorough understanding of finance, systems, and HR; broad experience with the full range of business functions and systems, including strategic development and planning, budgeting, business analysis, finance, information systems, human resources, and marketing

    Specific requirements include:

    • Minimum B.Sc/M.Sc degree in any of the Social Sciences with at least 10 years of experience and a track record in senior management level.
    • Membership of Chattered Institute of Administration or other professional bodies.
    • Excellence in organizational management with the ability to coach a senior-level staff to manage and develop high-performance teams and develop and implement program strategies.
    • Deep experience in program budgeting and fiscal management.
    • Analytic and decisive decision maker with the ability to prioritize and communicate to staff key objectives and tactics necessary to achieve organizational goals.
    • Ability to point to specific examples of having led organizational transformation projects and program development
    • Past experience managing human resources function including personnel, compensation, and recruiting.
    • Unwavering commitment to quality programs and data-driven program evaluation.
    • Fundraising experience with the ability to engage a wide range of stakeholders and cultures.
    • Strong written and verbal communication skills; a persuasive and passionate communicator with excellent public speaking skills.
    • Action-oriented, entrepreneurial, flexible, and innovative approach to operational management.
    • Passion, humility, integrity, positive attitude, mission-driven, and self-directed.
