If flexibility and a part time commitment sound just perfect for you read on.

Due to a retirement, the multi-employer National Financial Cooperative Benefit Plan (“Plan”) is seeking an Executive Director to provide oversight of the Plan operations and manage supplier and partner relationships.  The Plan’s objective, as it evolves to a new delivery model, is to provide the 220 participating credit unions and related organizations with a comprehensive suite of employee benefits with access to superior expertise, service and competitive pricing options.

As the successful candidate you will contribute your strong leadership and relationship building skills, a collaborative style and excellent communication skills.  You will enjoy the flexibility provided by an independent contractor arrangement working from home with occasional travel to attend board and related meetings.  The time commitment is variable but based on an average of 40 hours per month.

Reporting to the Chair of the Advisory Committee you will provide reporting on the overall operations of the Plan and be accountable for the execution of the business strategy including, but not limited to, activities related to annual business planning, management of partner relationships and assisting the Advisory Committee to ensure the value of the Plan continues to evolve and be relevant. A high standard of integrity and commitment to the terms of reference and principles of the Plan will be paramount.

You will have a Bachelor’s degree in Business or a related discipline combined with 8 to 10 years of senior management experience or an equivalent combination of education and experience as well as knowledge of governance practices.  Experience with a multi-employer insured benefits plan and an understanding of the credit union system will be assets.
