Part-Time Managing Director – The Fig Tree Foundation - Calgary AB


Who We Are The Fig Tree Foundation is a Calgary-based group dedicated to helping disadvantaged populations around the world by fostering collaboration between, and raising funds for registered international development organizations. We are committed to supporting collaborative projects and programs that demonstrate the best potential return on every dollar raised, as measured by the net positive impact on the lives of communities in need. An essential component of our structure includes the Roundtable; a forum for local non-governmental organizations to meet, share contacts and experiences and assist each other in finding solutions to their common problems. At the Fig Tree Foundation, we are confident that an opportunity exists to achieve a greater net impact from existing development and aid efforts by encouraging and facilitating cooperation as well as by making disciplined investments in impactful development projects. The Fig Tree Foundation achieves this through its Funding Criteria and its commitment to collaboration amongst its Roundtable Partners. The Fig Tree Foundation does not implement projects on our own. Instead, we work with Roundtable members already implementing projects in the field and the partners that they are working with. We aim to achieve additional efficiencies and add value at every point in these interactions.

The Opportunity The Fig Tree Foundation is looking for our next Managing Director. In this part-time role (approximately 20 hours/week), you will be leading our volunteer-based organization to deliver on our core development principles of sustainability, effectiveness, collaboration and transparency: - By facilitating seamless, transparent internal communications with our team leads and Board of Directors through collaborative problem-solving, regular brainstorming and constant innovation; - By facilitating collaboration & conversation throughout our Roundtable forum during their quarterly meetings and beyond; - Through effective stakeholder engagement within the communities we impact; and - Through effective volunteer engagement & management to ensure the successful delivery of our core principles to all stakeholders, both internal and external. Not stopping there, you will always have an eye to the future of Fig Tree Foundation. You passionately believe in our business approach to social development and commit to improvement, achievement and innovation to support our core development principles at every turn. The Ideal Candidate We are seeking an entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for our organizational model, and deep-rooted belief for what we are doing within the world. If you see a gap you work to fix it; if you see an opportunity you jump to be part of it.

You must be someone who is time flexible - you can attend meetings or events whether it’s morning, noon or night – and someone who is comfortable operating without strict structure or routine. You also must be a strong communicator and be able to deftly adapt your communications to your audience. You must have the ability to develop Executive-level reporting for our Board of Directors in the morning, and explain our organization’s structure to a potential volunteer over coffee that same afternoon. Previous experience with volunteer management, international development, and leadership within a non-profit organization is essential to success in this role. Previous education in international development, business, or a combination of the two would further strengthen your ability to succeed.
