Chief Executive - Applications Now Being Accepted

on . Posted in LIFELINE February 2017 - English

In December’s edition of LIFE LINE we announced that our current CEO, Bruce Reid, is moving on to new adventures later this year.

jacketsWe are very sorry to see him go and extend our heartfelt thanks for all he has done to move the IMRF forward over the last four years. Bruce has been instrumental in helping us to grow our membership, income and profile. He leaves the IMRF with much better operational systems and part of his legacy will be the strong team that has been created.

In order to take the IMRF to the next level we are now looking for individuals who can:

Combine strategic and operational delivery;
Influence a diverse group of stakeholders;
Grow and diversify income;
Extend our influence even further to affect policy through strong advocacy.

We are now accepting applications with a view to making an appointment in early April. 

We are working with an executive search firm, Prospectus, to find his successor. They are helping us to find and secure someone who is an ambitious, collaborative leader with experience of working in a cross-cultural environment.
