At the Gomo Foundation we are dedicated to building exceptional communities in Africa by empowering young women with the resources to change their future. To do this, we are creating opportunities for young women to build their skills and transform their lives and the communities they live in. We are kicking off this mission in Zimbabwe, with an aim to place 50 young, exceptional women into education by 2021, and we need some help! Over time, we will expand our reach into other parts of Africa and extend beyond education to tell the stories and form the key partnerships that will enable our young women to continue to grow and thrive throughout their lives.
The Gomo Foundation has been growing steadily for the last few years, and we are now looking for a new and passionate CEO to take us into the future.
Our next CEO will be committed to the education of young women, a natural leader who feels confident in guiding, directing and connecting a team of about 20 volunteers and someone with a business-mindset who can apply their industry and previous volunteering experiences to continue to grow the revenue and reputation of the Gomo Foundation.
The CEO is responsible for carrying out the strategic plans and policies, as established by the Board of Directors.
The Chief Executive Officer role is the most critical position in the Gomo Foundation, as this pivotal role is expected to provide strategic thought leadership to the commercial decisions of our public ancillary fund, whilst also managing the day-to-day operational decisions that make our volunteers feel empowered to deliver outcomes that change the lives of young girls in rural areas of Africa.
Currently, the CEO leads more than 20 volunteers with some management support in the areas of marketing, technology and operations that makes work assignment simpler. However, given the size of our Foundation, this individual will still need to inspire progress by staying closely connected to the tactical work of the team.
Attributes that we will be looking for are:
