This Executive Vice President (EVP) position is a new and critically important role, developed in response to the retirement of JFN’s long time COO and the completion of a strategic plan. It is an opportunity for an executive to contribute to JFN’s growth and impact in both the North American and global Jewish community. The EVP will sit on JFN’s leadership team and will report to and partner with the CEO, Andres Spokoiny, to elevate the organization through its next phase of growth
The EVP will be the day-to-day operating executive working with staff and leadership to implement JFN’s programs. The EVP will work closely with senior program directors providing oversight and assistance in managing strategies, resources, timetables and evaluation for their work. Together with the CEO, the EVP will participate in the development of programs and designing new initiatives. Outstanding candidates for this position will understand how to facilitate, mediate, and make decisions around competing priorities in the organization by building strong relationships with team members and by skillfully guiding those teams to drive the translation of the vision of JFN into a reality.
The EVP should have a deep understanding of the organized Jewish community and a strong working knowledge of the philanthropic and foundation world. Given JFN’s presence in Israel, candidates should also have experience (or be comfortable with) interacting with Israeli counterparts.
Reporting to the Executive Vice President, this newly designed position, the Director of Finance and Administration, is responsible for the oversight of all finance, accounting and reporting activities, and grants management. As the primary finance staff, the Director will work closely with the senior leadership team.
The Director will lead all day-to-day finance operations of a budget of $6 million, supervise the part-time bookkeeper, maintain all functional responsibility over accounting, accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, and grants administration. The Director will assure that JFN has the systems and procedures in place to support effective program implementation and conduct flawless audits. The Director will work closely with program leaders and staff, not only to provide regular reports and to educate them regarding finance and accounting procedures, but also to explore how the finance function can support program operations. This is a very hands-on position.
