Coquitlam Foundation seeking new Executive Director

Thursday, October 6, 2016

The Coquitlam Foundation is searching for an energetic and resourceful, competent and caring, inspiring and insightful individual to fill the position of Executive Director. The position is becoming vacant because of the imminent retirement of the current ED, Jill Cook.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with Jill,” says Board Chair Janet Toddington. “The board of directors is disappointed to be losing such a valuable member of its team.  Her energy, leadership and sincere commitment to our philanthropic vision have helped us to further the foundation’s goals and achieve dramatic growth during her tenure.”

Reporting to a volunteer board, the Executive Director is accountable for all aspects of Foundation operations. This part-time contract position offers an ideal opportunity to balance personal and professional interests by working from a home office.

Knowledge of Coquitlam and its residents is an asset, as are marketing, communications, and event-planning skills.  Experience working in a non-profit environment, proficiency with social media, and appropriate post-secondary training round out the desired qualifications.

Salary is negotiable based on experience and qualifications. If interested, please email a cover letter and resume to Board Chair Toddington at by 5:00 pm, Monday, October 17, 2016.  We thank all applicants for their interest in the Coquitlam Foundation but only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
