Job Posting: Executive Assistant to the Executive Director, IJM Canada

The Mission

IJM is the global leader in protecting vulnerable people from violence around the world. Our global team of over 1,000 professionals are at work in 25 offices. Together, we are catalyzing a global revolution that will rescue millions, protect half a billion, and make justice 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 people from violence, IJM has become an $80 million organization with 1,000 global employees. As IJM continues this trajectory of growth and scaling of its impact, IJM Canada’s Executive Director is seeking an organized and detail-oriented Executive Assistant to provide executive support to the Executive Director and Canadian Leadership Team. The ideal individual will have the ability to exhibit superior judgment and high emotional and cultural intelligence in a dynamic leadership environment with strong written and verbal communication, administrative and organizational skills. The Executive Assistant must be able to thrive in a fast-paced, rigorous environment, steward a wide variety of activities and confidential matters with discretion, and partner with the Executive Director to balance competing priorities to maximize the productivity and effectiveness of the Executive Director and the Canadian team. Ultimately, your success will lead to quicker revenue growth and more children, women and men being freed from violence and protected in their communities.

The ideal candidate will be driven by supporting communications and operations, knowing and reinforcing detailed processes, and learning new things. You will take pride and joy in working alongside and collaborating with colleagues to fuel the mission and end slavery in our lifetime.

This position is based in the Greater Toronto area reports to the Executive Director, IJM Canada.
