Contract Type: Permanent
Closing Date: 7 March 2018
Potential Interview Date: 2 April 2018

Tearfund is an international Christian organisation based in the UK and working in over 50 developing countries.  It is passionate about working through the local church to address poverty. It believes poverty stems from broken relationships - with God, ourselves and others, and the wider creation.

Building on a strong reputation and a record of growth, Tearfund has inspired independent charitable organizations in a number of key countries to promote its work and optimize resources. It is now launching Tearfund US by completing the process of 501c3 registration this year. As a key part of this, the Chair of the Tearfund US Board is seeking to appoint a Chief Executive who will craft and deliver a US expression of Tearfund’s global vision for change. In the first few years, this will entail mobilizing an effective staff team, forming a strong network of supporters and partners, and establishing Tearfund US as an independent and committed member of the Tearfund worldwide family.

Our vision

To inspire and mobilise Christians in the US to be generous and take action alongside people living in poverty. Jesus is already present in the places of greatest need and there is an opportunity to challenge and encourage US Christians to go there too. In this work, Tearfund US will be strengthened through connectivity into Tearfund’s regional and global platforms.

Who you need to be

A creative, discerning senior executive who shares the vision and is ready to bring spiritual leadership to establishing the new organization and its reputation in the United States. A self-starter you will be able to build a high performing staff team, seek new opportunities for Tearfund's work, deliver new initiatives and work well with Tearfund in the UK.

You will have a strong knowledge and understanding of US church networks and be able to move seamlessly between different church tribes. A competent public speaker, your passion for overcoming poverty and injustice, and experience of advocating on behalf of others, will enable you to influence at all levels in society.

What is being offered

Remuneration and benefits will be agreed with the successful candidate.

The Tearfund US CEO will report to the newly-established Tearfund US Board of Directors and will work in close collaboration with the Executive Team of Tearfund in the UK.

There will be start-up investment funds to recruit a US team and open access to the knowledge and expertise of the global Tearfund family.

The role will be based in the US. The location where Tearfund US Headquarters will be set up is yet to be decided.  Significant travel is involved -  frequent trips within the US each month and internationally up to 10 weeks per year.

All applicants must be committed to Tearfund's Christian beliefs and must have the legal right to live and work in the US.

We actively welcome expressions of interest from women and underrepresented groups.
