Director, Shared Platform (Maternity Leave)
MakeWay builds partnerships and solutions to help nature and communities thrive together. We are made up of two legal charitable entities: MakeWay Charitable Society, a shared platform home to over 65 innovative community-led projects staffed by 150 change makers; and MakeWay Foundation where about 70 people are advancing place-based programs that support Indigenous-led solutions and conservation in the North, Pacific, Manitoba, and beyond via grant-making, funder collaboratives and other tools. Our people, projects, and partners are based across the country.
The Director of the Shared Platform leads the team and the implementation of the strategy to support a growing number of innovative mission-aligned community of environmental and social initiatives on the platform. In this role, you will collaborate with other teams across MakeWay to ensure that ultimately these projects are sustained, and have greater impact.
With your strong knowledge of charitable compliance, project delivery, and people management, you will also work closely with Senior Management Team colleagues, to advance charitable sector collaboration and advocacy, thought leadership and other strategic initiatives.
