Job Description:


The Confederation Centre of the Arts celebrates the origins and evolution of Canada through a rich variety of arts and heritage programming – from contemporary art to historical recreation and best-in-class theatre to fine dining and education programmes. Vibrant, and forward-thinking, the Centre is forging cross-country collaborations, increased diversity, digital innovation, and community engagement at all levels. The CEO will work closely with a progressive Board of Directors, ensure strong business processes, and inspire the team to new levels of engagement and innovation that support the Centre’s cultural mandate.

You are a leader with an outstanding record of success in growing a diverse, high-profile, complex non-profit business. Passionate about arts and culture, you have formal education together with experience in a unionized environment. An accomplished relationship-builder, you have the ability to work with all levels of government and to address the challenge of balancing the needs and aspirations of a multi-channel operation, its trustees, a diverse public, staff, volunteers, funding partners, and the media. Assured, adept, and engaging, you will energize and align all stakeholders around your execution of business plans, marketing, fundraising, partnering, and growth strategy.

You’re a builder. Of consensus. Of excitement. You’re the best kind of change manager – the kind that empowers everyone around you to reach their highest potential.
