Job Reference: XAAAYA
Closing Date: 1st August 2018
CAFOD’s vision is a world transformed to reflect the Kingdom of God; a
world where the rights and dignity of every person are respected and all
have access to basic needs in life. We believe that women and men should
share equally in shaping their societies and our world so that the gifts of
creation are nurtured and shared by all for the common good.
For almost 60 years, CAFOD has grown as an expression of the
compassion of the Catholic community of England and Wales to stand in
solidarity with the poorest and most marginalised, regardless of faith,
gender, race, ethnicity or other defining features.
As a leading agency in international development, humanitarian and
advocacy work, our presence now extends to over 40 countries, supporting
over 300 partners working with local communities worldwide. As our
longstanding Director, Chris Bain, who has successfully led CAFOD for
15 years retires, we are now seeking a new leader to help us continue to
have an even greater, positive impact on the lives of the poorest and
forgotten across the world.
As Director, you will provide inspirational leadership which harnesses our
faith identity, presenting a vision of CAFOD that deepens our role in the
Catholic community of England and Wales and enables our international
development, humanitarian and advocacy work to deliver our mission of
service. As the executive leader and key public face of CAFOD you will
also champion CAFOD’s professionalism, profile, influence and credibility
within the UK NGO sector, Government and media by ensuring the
delivery of CAFOD’s mission. You will lead and inspire our dedicated
community of staff and volunteers and ensure that all CAFOD groups work
together collaboratively to deliver our strategic directions
You will bring demonstrable, strategic leadership experience in a large
complex organisation, with the credibility to work effectively with our
many stakeholders and partners to help us achieve our goals. You will have
a deep personal commitment to the Catholic faith and the cultural
sensitivity and experience to work in our international and wonderfully
diverse environment. If you share our drive to bring hope, compassion and
solidarity to poor communities across the world, we would love to hear
