Executive Director

St. John's, NL

Venor is proud to partner with Dollar A Day in their search for an Executive Director. Dollar A Day was founded to raise funds to bridge the gap between the availability of frontline mental health and addictions programs. It began with a simple mission: bridge the gap between the funding and the need for frontline mental health and addictions programs across Canada.

Reporting to the Board, the Executive Director is responsible for developing and implementing strategic plans that meet organizational goals and objectives created in partnership with the Founders, creating and communicating the culture of the organization, developing relationships with key stakeholders, maintaining and developing strong community partnerships, and establishing meaningful working relationships with various community groups and corporate business partners. The successful candidate will ensure appropriate financial management, inclusive of appropriate and timely reporting to the Founders, along with preparation of the annual budget in conjunction with the Founders. The Executive Director will oversee the efficient and effective day to day operations and establish a positive and safe working environment.

As the ideal candidate, you have post secondary education in business or related programs with 5 to 10 years of career progression, or equivalent experience and education. You demonstrate an understanding of grassroots community giving and corporate partnerships. You are someone with strong verbal and written communications and the confidence to build relationships and create value. You are able to make sound decisions in ambiguous situations and can plan actions to fit strategy. You can effectively and passionately communicate the organization’s mission and focus to rally others around the cause.

Venor and Dollar A Day embrace a culture of belonging in the workplace. No matter who you are, where you’re from, how you think, what you believe in, or who you love, we welcome your application. We all come from different backgrounds and different walks of life, bringing in unique perspectives and experiences. We encourage applications from 2SLGBTQ+, Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC), women, newcomers to Canada, and people with disabilities. If you require any accommodation in the application and interview process, please let us know (including different materials or otherwise).

If you’re excited by the opportunity to drive the overall strategic direction and operational efficiencies of a purpose-driven organization unified in the mission to combat mental health and addictions across Canada, this may be the opportunity for you.
