Current Staff Openings

Executive Director, Sixties Scoop Healing Foundation

The Board of Directors, Sixties Scoop Healing Foundation, presents a unique opportunity for the right candidate to assume executive leadership within a charitable foundation devoted to the healing and wellness of Survivors of the Sixties Scoop and their families.

Reporting to the Board of Directors, SSHF, this newly created position will appeal to senior executives who have an interest in developing and operationalizing a long awaited Survivor based response to the multiple issues associated with the Sixties Scoop. In partnership with the Board of Directors, the founding Executive Director will build the organization from the ground up. They will be the face of the Foundation and will play an integral role in the development of programs and services to support Survivors.

As the only national body speaking on behalf of Survivors the Executive Director will articulate the Vision, Mission, developmental approach, needs rationale, and the overall strategy, both strategic and operational. The position requires mastery of compromise and inclusion and the ability to create peace and consensus without compromising fundamental instructions. The foundation is new and will need to create its own path. The Executive Director will be comfortable embracing ambiguity and making things tangible when the path ahead is not clear.

The successful candidate will recruit and manage a senior leadership team and will be accountable and responsible for the management of an initial budget of 50 million dollars. Being the founding Executive Director is both an honor and privilege and will require a passion for the work, and an understanding of its sacredness.
