Background Information:

The Irish Girl Guides (IGG) is a youth-driven, dynamic organisation offering a varied and exciting programme for girls and young women aged 5-30, and opportunities for women of all ages. It has approximately 11,000 youth and adult members in Ireland and its mission is to allow girls to develop and express themselves in a safe, comfortable, supported setting. IGG members learn new skills, grow in self-confidence, develop teamwork and leadership skills, experience new activities, and build lifelong friendships.

IGG is now seeking a dynamic Chief Executive Officer to ensure the effective operations and sustainability of the organisation.

The Role:

The CEO will lead and mentor IGG’s dedicated team and work closely with its passionate group of volunteers. This is a great opportunity for an experienced, passionate senior executive to lead IGG into the future and as such, we are looking for an outstanding candidate who can bring a comprehensive range of skills and experience to this exciting position.

To succeed in this role, you will be a strong communicator with the ability to build relationships across multiple audiences including volunteers, employees, donors, government agencies, the media, and the Board. You will be comfortable managing and reporting on finances and budgets and you will possess excellent project management skills. The CEO will develop a comprehensive fundraising strategy with the Board and will take the lead on identifying and securing additional sources of funding to support IGG’s activities and development.

Experience working in a volunteer-led organisation is highly desirable and ideally, you will have experience working in a regulated environment, and value both good governance and best practice.

This role requires a confident and credible influencer with a talent for inspirational leadership. If you have experience working at a senior level managing diverse teams and stakeholders, and you are passionate about the empowerment of young people, this could be the role for you!
