Located in Ottawa, The National Association of Federal Retirees is the largest national advocacy group representing pensioners, their partners and survivors, from the public service, the Canadian Forces, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and federally appointed judges. Federal Retirees is a not-for-profit association with over 180,000 members in 80 branches across Canada and are supported by over 800 volunteers. For more information about the Association visit www.federalretirees.ca. With a budget of $7.5 million, this dynamic and financially sound organization is now looking for a Director, Finance and Administration to provide oversight and leadership in the areas of finance, IT, facilities, and events management.
As a key member of the senior management team, reporting to the CEO, the new Director will work closely with all parts of the organization to ensure financial sustainability, and that the systems and services that support the association in its activities are efficient and effective. Working closely with the Board, Senior Team, and volunteers, he or she will take a leadership role in the allocation of funds to the 80 volunteer-led branches, manage the associated reporting requirements, and ensure solid branch relationships. With responsibility for the management of the association-owned office building (including tenant relations and management), IT systems, and event logistics, the new Director will play a pivotal role in the overall operations of the organization.
As an ideal candidate, you possess a university degree coupled with an accounting designation, and have senior management experience in a non-profit environment. You are accustomed to working as part of a management team in setting organizational direction, and then working to achieve objectives. You understand the restraints under which a non-profit must operate, and bring both creativity and an entrepreneurial approach to the role. A natural team builder and collaborator, you will promote cooperation and communication, and build a healthy internal culture that is inclusive and empowering to all staff. Bilingualism would be a significant asset, as would experience in a federated or branch model, working with a myriad of stakeholders with whom you may not have formal authority.
