Caregivers Nova Scotia provides free programs, workshops, information, and advocacy for over 5,000 family and friend caregivers throughout Nova Scotia. Both staff and board are passionate about the contribution caregivers make to the quality of life of their loved ones and the support they require that this organization can provide.
The incumbent Executive Director is retiring in June 2020 and on behalf of the Board of Directors, we are seeking a highly-respected individual, with a special blend of skills, to lead the organization as its new Executive Director.
What qualities are required as Executive Director?
As Executive Director, you are responsible for fulfilling the mission of Caregivers Nova Scotia and ensuring all programs and supports are delivered efficiently, effectively, and consistently.
You are comfortable in advocacy roles as you will serve as the face of the organization to its many diverse stakeholders including caregivers, government, employees, community groups, media and potential funding partners.
Operationally, you have well-developed skills in human resources, financial management, operations, program delivery, policy development, communication, and strategic planning. You have proven experience working collaboratively with a highly capable and committed Board of Directors, and you bring a thorough understanding of governance matters.
Finally, you are an exceptional leader of people. This is so important because the valued work of Caregivers Nova Scotia depends on the significant contributions of the many outstanding staff who serve those who provide unpaid care so diligently.
The leader of this organization must be a unique person—one who has all the above qualities and executes them with compassion, drive, and humility. If this describes you, please forward your resume and a thoughtful letter explaining how your accomplishments and experience meet the needs of Caregivers Nova Scotia in the coming years.
