Job Posting: Director of Team Freedom Partnerships - Pro Athletes Ending Slavery

The Mission

IJM is the global leader in protecting the poor from violence in the developing world. Our global team of over 1,000 professionals are at work in over 25 offices. Together, we are catalyzing a global revolution that will rescue millions, protect half a billion, and make justice for the poor unstoppable.

Motivated by God’s call to seek justice for the oppressed, we believe that the way we work is as important as the results we achieve. We are a global community that cares for one another. We value joy and celebration, and we strive to provide professional excellence to all those we serve.

The Need

After nearly two decades of continued growth and operational success in pioneering the work of protecting the poor from violence, IJM has become an $80 million organization with 1000 global employees. As IJM continues this trajectory of growth and scaling of its impact, IJM’s Regional Director of Partner Programs is seeking an inspirational leader to build meaningful and game-changing relationships with professional athletes in both Canada and the United States.

Team Freedom lays the foundation for a best-in-class charitable and philanthropy experience for professional athletes and their families. Team Freedom and IJM’s influencer partner platforms play a key role in scaling the work and ultimately enabling IJM’s frontline teams to rescue millions from slavery and violence around the globe.

The ideal candidate will be driven to maximize athlete platforms by building nuanced relationships that drive forward IJM’s global brand awareness. As part of Team Freedom, you will help identify and develop professional athletes to champion the fight against slavery and violence while finding joy in collaboration with colleagues and partners to fuel the mission and end slavery in our lifetime.

This position can be based in one of our North America offices (the Greater Toronto Area or the Washington DC Area) or may be remotely located in the US.
