The Qajuqturvik Food Centre (QFC) seeks an Executive Director (ED). This is a full-time position.

The QFC is a registered charity that aims to provide healthy food programming in a welcoming, inclusive environment. The QFC works in partnership with Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC) and is set to become a Community Food Centre this year. Community food centres are places where people come together to cook, grow, share, and advocate for good food. For more information, visit qajuqturvik.ca or cfccanada.ca

The ED is the principal administrator of the QFC, ensuring its daily activities run smoothly. As such, with the support of the Board and other staff, the ED is responsible for:

  • organizational finances, including bookkeeping, invoicing, fundraising and reporting;
  • recruitment, orientation and leadership of employees and volunteers;
  • organization and implementation of QFC programming;
  • program evaluation, annual reports, and statistics collection;
  • public relations, including media, organizational publications, website and social media;
  • policy and guideline development;
  • overseeing general maintenance of the facility;
  • maintaining existing partnerships and building others; and
  • building a positive environment for staff, volunteers and program users.

Other duties may be assigned by the Board of Directors as the mission and scope of the QFC continues to evolve. Travel may be required. Work is indoors (office/common space) and consists primarily of clerical work and communication with staff and the public. Discretion is needed when dealing with sensitive and traumatic personal issues. Physical fatigue could be a consequence of mental exertion.

The ideal candidate will have a combination of the following:

  • experience in a leadership or management role in a similar non-profit organization;
  • an understanding of financial management and experience applying for, implementing and reporting on contribution agreements;
  • good communication skills, both written and verbal;
  • the ability to demonstrate compassion, openness, flexibility and creativity when working with the general public and within an organization; and
  • experience and/or education in the community development or social service sector.

A criminal record check and positive references may be requested. Fluency in Inuktut is an asset. In conformance with Article 23 of the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement, preference will be given to Inuit applicants. The salary is $105,000 per annum. Staff housing is an option.

To apply, submit a letter and resume to president@qajuqturvik.ca, or apply in-person at 655 Mattaaq Crescent, Iqaluit. Please do not hesitate to inquire in advance if you have any questions or concerns about the position. Only those candidates being considered will be contacted.
