CAP

Executive Director

Hamilton ON

 

 

About Christians Against Poverty

Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is a dynamic and growing mission with a strong vision, unique culture and passionate workforce. CAP exists to equip the local church so that it may effectively serve the poor and save the lost. We have developed highly effective expertise to break into the hellish mix of poverty, isolation, chaos and severe stress, delivering hope, peace, and freedom through our compassion and technical excellence.  

 

Working at CAP is exhilarating because we experience partnership with the living Christ and the power of His resurrection as we see thousands of people freed from debt, connected with a loving community and saved. We have a huge, collective ambition to see poverty eradicated in people’s lives, see them come to know Jesus’ abundant life and find belonging in his family.  

 

CAP’s work started in the UK back in 1996, and then launched in Australia (2000), New Zealand (2007), Canada (2013) and the United States (2019). CAP lives out the belief that ‘culture eats strategy for breakfast’ (though we’re pretty keen on strategy too, so we have that for lunch). We invest in and seek to thoroughly integrate our values into who we are and how we do what we do. To join CAP is to commit to growing with us into being more Christ centred, generous, passionate, united, compassionate, fun, excellent and courageous, in addition to leading this culture throughout the organization. 

 

As our previous Executive Director moves on and moves back to the UK with his family, CAP needs and is now seeking a very special person to provide leadership to CAP Canada as our Executive Director. The role of Executive Director, reporting to the Canadian Board of Directors and the CAP International CEO, will lead all of CAP’s operations in Canada. This leadership role is asking for someone to consider a calling and to believe that God’s hopes for each of us who are his Church can be achieved in our lifetime:  

 

You’ll be known as those who can fix anyt‘hing, restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate, make the community liveable again.’ (Isaiah 58:12) 

Purpose of the Executive Director appointment 

The Executive Director (ED) will provide the strategic leadership in Canada to deliver the ever-present expansion and improvement plans of the charity, whilst ensuring the organisation remains true to being Christ centred, generous, passionate, united, compassionate, fun, excellent and courageous.

  1. Ensure poverty is relieved, lives are connected to loving communities, and people meet Jesus 
  2. Ensure the organisation is run with excellence 
  3. Ensure we deliver our growth plans 
  4. Ensure we raise the money and profile required to achieve the above 
  5. Ensure we are good, caring stewards of our people and resources

Clinical Therapist

London, ON

When you walk into the first session with your ideal client it feels like heaven. You LOVE doing therapy! You are a registered mental health professional, ethical, well trained, and you are pretty good with almost anyone that comes in the door, but with a selective group of clients, you are truly GREAT! The problem is, in your current situation, you don’t get to have those kinds of experiences the way you want… and it is truly starting to wear you down. In fact, there are a few types of clients out there that you have to work REALLY hard to rally for and get excited about working with them.. and right now, it seems like you are getting more and more of those clients.

You’ve thought about private practice, but the truth is- you don’t want to be a business owner and to carry the stress that comes with that. You get excited about talking to people, sharing what you do, and even enjoy giving a talk to the community from time to time- but you don’t want to be bogged down with accounting, bookkeeping, business planning, and search engine optimization! You’d really love to find a private practice where you’d feel like you were a part of a truly awesome community. You want to be excited about seeing your coworkers, be able to have a quick chat between sessions, excited about the clients you are working with, glowing at the end of a really hard clinical day because you know you did excellent work.

If this sounds like you, send over your resume, 2 reference letters and a written (or video) cover letter. No traditional cover letters. Tell me about the true you, why you’d fit with this practice, and tell me about those ideal clients with whom you do your most awesome work!
