National Director

Location: London – Cambridge ON

The Organization

Since 1980, New Life Prison Ministries (NLPM) has specialized in providing Bible study curriculum courses free-of-charge to inmates and chaplains at correctional institutions all across Canada.

Our focus is on developing an interactive relationship with the inmate by assigning one of our many dedicated volunteers to walk them through our over 90 study courses. Our commitment is to read every study, respond with personal and caring guidance and assist with resources where able. We also provide dedicated Aftercare support helping ex-offenders re-integrate after release from prison.

Built on the vision and commitment of the Founders, Gerrit and Susan Blok, this ministry grew from a heart for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with those incarcerated in our Canadian prisons. For the past 5 years under the leadership of the National Director, Rosemary Redshaw, this same passion has continued to be the foundation that has driven the ministry forward. Over the last several years changes have taken place to introduce the use of new technologies with students and volunteers. NLPM has also been growing, with the number of students and number of studies increasing dramatically. The organization has also taken positive steps to raise awareness of the ministry within the Canadian prison system and across the faith community. The annual budget has grown to $500,000 in order to support the existing ministry. The National Director that has led this realignment of the ministry for the past 5 years will be retiring in the near future and we are looking to find the next person that God has in place to take up the mantle of leadership for this ministry.

The Opportunity

The National Director (ND) is accountable to the Board of Directors to provide leadership, direction and oversight of all of the organization’s activities including all strategic, ministry, and operational aspects of the organization. As its head, the ND is responsible to give Christian spiritual leadership to the organization and to ensure that NLPM carries on its activities in a manner that reflects its mission, vision, and values. The next ND will have the challenge of continuing to build on the momentum that has been created over the past few years and develop the resources, both human and financial to support the current level of growth that is being experienced and future growth. The ND works closely with the staff in both the Arva and Cambridge offices and in supporting a strong contingent of volunteers.

 

The Person

As the leader of the organization, the ND will also serve as a model of integrity for all New Life Prison Ministries employees and display a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and a lifestyle that is above reproach, personally and professionally. The next ND will have a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent ministry leadership experience) preferably in business or social work, and at least five years of executive leadership experience. Experience in a leadership role at a not-for-profit organization, a para-church organization or a social service agency would be a definite asset. Experience fundraising from private donors or government funding bodies would also be valuable.

 

How to Apply

After reading this Opportunity Profile, if you sense the gifts and experience God has given you is a good match for NLPM, we invite you to send your cover letter, resume and a personal statement about your faith journey in confidence to the ND Search Committee of the Board of Directors by email at: chairsearchcommittee@nlpm.ca .

Our Mission

Bringing transformation and hope, through the good news of Jesus Christ to those in Canadian Prisons.

Our Vision

Through God's empowerment, we will:

Reach every major correctional fcility in Canada

Provide every person in prison the opportunity to know the Lord Jesus through Bible based correspondence courses.

Connect every interested person with Christian resources upon release.

Senior Operations Specialist, Pricing

Toronto

We are on a mission to create a home maintenance service so simple to use that homeowners can just forget about it. We've built an exceptional team and have raised money from top-notch investors to make our vision a reality for homeowners of the world. The opportunity to take on a big role and have huge impact is very real. Our culture is collaborative, focused, and transparent.

Our client is making home improvement and maintenance effortless.

Everyday, hundreds of homeowners look to our client to address problems in their home (from leaking faucets to brand new decks). The Senior Operations Specialist helps make those requests a reality by talking to clients, understanding their needs and providing solutions. Our ops team is responsible for managing home improvement and maintenance projects from end to end on behalf of our clients. As a Senior Operations Specialist, you'll resolve our most complex requests by owning individual clients and their projects, ensuring we understand their needs, build appropriate project scopes, convey to clients that they can trust us with their homes, and coordinate logistics in a rapidly moving environment.

 

The role requires a unique combination of skills: a background in construction with the ability to estimate jobs, customer centricity, detailed organization, the ability to build rapport through written and verbal communication, and the skill to manage multiple stakeholders. The job is on the front lines and it’s performance-based. We have a culture of continuous improvement, so you'll be asked to take a critical eye towards the way we work, and challenge the status quo wherever you find opportunities for improvement.

 

Homeowners are (rightly so) protective of their homes and it requires a unique touch to ensure that our clients feel valued and fairly treated while also ensuring that we properly respect the Pros that are the face of our client  in the home. 

As Senior Operations Specialist, you will be responsible for:

Owning our most complex home improvement and maintenance projects from end to end through focusing on wowing instead of pitching - instead of cold calls and LinkedIn touchpoints, you’ll focus on fulfilling inbound homeowner requests at lightning speed. You’ll never be asked to pitch a client something they didn’t already ask for.

Designing and pricing complex project scopes.

Managing multiple requests with an eye towards hitting targets.

Communicating with clients to discover their underlying needs behind their home service requests.

Designing and pricing appropriate project scopes for client needs.

Coordinating with Pros to find the right service provider for our clients' needs.

Managing project logistics between Pros and Homeowners.

Ensuring that pros are properly prepared for jobs. Sometimes small details can mean the difference between a 2 and 5 star experience, and this job requires an intense attention to detail.

Communicating both in app (text) and often on the phone.

Going over and above for our clients and Pros to let them know that we care (Ex: Sending gifts or cards).

Occasional work on the weekends since homeowners are sometimes less available to chat between 9 and 5 and that can inhibit our ability to solve their problems and therefore achieve performance objectives.

What you'll bring to the team:

Experience in the construction industry; you have the ability to price and quote jobs

You thrive in high performance environments.

A background in client operations (e.g., sales, customer service, customer success, field operations management, or service delivery) with more than just a customer-centric mindset; success in this role comes from combining the ability to move quickly and hit targets but to do so with empathy. Hitting targets while disregarding the end result is not something we’ll tolerate.

You should love talking to clients, solving problems, and have a critical path mindset.

Demonstrated track record of leadership and going above and beyond.

Experience managing and coordinating projects or initiatives.

A startup mindset - the ability to move fast in the face of uncertainty.

Intense ownership - you're never comfortable passing something off as "someone else's problem." 

While focusing on doing the right thing, we embrace an atmosphere of creativity, belonging, and fun. At our core we're passionate, overachieving team players who believe in: Gumption, focus, and nurture. Together we are building the cities of the future.

The Mustard Seed is a Christian non-profit organization that has been serving people experiencing poverty and homelessness in Alberta since the ‘80s. It has become a haven for those needing help, which is offered through open hands with unconditional love.

 

The initial idea for a street ministry for the homeless grew out of the Burning Bush Coffeehouse in Calgary, Alberta, which was run by the First Baptist Church in the ‘70s and early ‘80s. It became a reality in 1984, when founder Pat Nixon planted The Mustard Seed in an old house downtown, which later grew into a larger building on 11 Avenue SE.
