Employment Type: Full-Time
Responsibility for the ‘brand’ of one of Canada’s iconic organizations, combined with a mandate to support and encourage RCMP officers in finding new ways to serve their communities, presents a unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of young people across Canada. The RCMP Foundation is an independent arms length organization with a purpose to support the work of RCMP members who develop and coordinate programs with local community groups to enhance the lives of Canada’s youth at risk. The Foundation raises funds to support local initiatives through management of the RCMP licensing program and partnerships with private sector sponsors. RCMP members rely on the Foundation to help them make a difference in their communities.
The RCMP Foundation is seeking an outstanding President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to lead the organization through its next stage of growth and success. In stimulating growth, you will participate with the Board of Directors to develop a vision and strategic plan that will guide the Foundation going forward. Working closely with a small dedicated team, you will reach out to Canada’s corporate community and RCMP Divisions to raise the profile and expand the reach of the RCMP Foundation. Secure funding partners for local projects recommended by front line RCMP members. Enlist the support of your Board to foster new partnerships and deepen existing alliances.
This opportunity will appeal to an exceptional senior leader who wants to align with a nimble and engaged team whose aspirations are to grow. The ideal candidate will embrace the challenges that come with positive growth and change. As a strategic thinker, dedicated professional and self-starter, you have experience and success building relationships. A fundraiser who has worked with the ‘giving’ community, you bring professionalism and passion. An understanding of retail operations and how government and police organizations operate would be valuable.
Here’s an opportunity to be front and centre with a mission that affects communities across Canada. Please forward your CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org or apply online at www.odgersberndtson.com/en/careers/14076. Review of applications will begin immediately.
