Future First Global is seeking a Managing Director to help grow the organisation. Considerable travel may be involved and we are seeking someone with strong entrepreneurial abilities to help think through strategy and deliver results for the organisation.
We are looking for someone who can get deals through with high level government officials, NGO partners and foundations as well as have an in depth understanding of how volunteering programmes, community building programmes and schools work.
We are looking for someone with drive and ambition who can provide leadership for the organisation – attitude and aptitude are ultimately more important to us than experience.
They will be supported to start by a modest amount of support staff (2 team members), an expert trustee board and a one to two day a week CEO (Future First Founder Jake Hayman).
We need someone prepared to do the hard work to build the organisation and be conscious of the fact that in the first instance, they will not have big budgets of staff teams to call upon and so will need to be prepared to help get done what needs to be done across all aspects of the organisation. The Managing Director will also be responsible for providing support and advice to our Future First Kenya team although their remit will be global, rather than Kenya-focussed.
This is not an international development organisation but a specialist organisation looking at how alumni networks can strengthen public education around the world.
