1 Position Profile Executive Director Skills for Change (SfC) 1.0 Profile of Skills for Change 1.1 Background Information Since 1982, Skills for Change (SfC) has worked with over 120,000 immigrants and refugees to provide them with learning and training opportunities that help them access and fully participate in the workplace and in the wider community. Our Vision is a Canada where every immigrant succeeds. To help achieve its goals, SfC focuses not only on immigrants and refugees but also on employers. It sees its role as bridging the gap between immigrants and employers by providing the appropriate supports to both through three key areas of work: 1) Providing programs and services to immigrants and refugees 2) Showcasing the contributions and talents that immigrants and refugees bring to society 3) Breaking down barriers that block immigrants and refugees from successfully entering the workplace. Skills for Change currently offers or provides over 45 courses, training programs and services in key areas such as employment, English as a second language, computer training, training and settlement services and general information. Some of the highlights achieved during the fiscal year were: Resource 1,553 clients and 309 workshops on diverse Increased funding from Ministry of Training and Colleges and Universities by 42% to $1.95 million and an invitation to open a new location in Flemingdon Park A three year investment from Social Venture Partners Toronto to provide both funding and strategic consulting support; investment includes a comprehensive capacity assessment For more detailed information on Skills for Change, please see SkillsforChange.org Page 1 of 8

2 1.2 The Challenges, Opportunities and Priorities SfC currently receives about 80% of its funding from the all levels of government (approximately $4.5M), while the balance is self-generated (including money from United Way). Approximately 50% of the self generated revenue comes from traditional fundraising sources, such as foundations, special events, and direct mail. The other 50% is raised through fee-based services to the community and employers.. The strong growth experienced by the organization over the last 5 years is attributable in large part to a significant increase of government funding. In September 2005, SfC had 40 staff, 2 locations and a $3 million budget. It currently has 100 staff, with 3 locations (one is being closed down as a result of MTCU funding and two new ones will be established over the next few months) and operates at a $6 million budget. As all levels of government readjust their funding models/ requirements, organizations such as SfC are now required to be more flexible in their structure and operations, so as to successfully accommodate these new and evolving funding requirements and models. For example, SfC is currently in the process of readjusting some of its program models to meet the requirements of the Ministry of Training and Colleges and Universities. In today s climate, the mandate to diversify and grow the funding base is essential for the future sustainability and success of the organization. Future growth and stability will now require looking at, and developing, new ways of building funding diversity to ensure the availability of sufficient and regular revenue sources. One significant opportunity for future exploration at SfC is to take advantage of the significant potential offered by the existing programs, partners and stakeholders by leveraging social enterprise opportunities. A 5 year Strategic plan was developed in 2009 and identifies 4 key areas that SfC will focus on to strengthen its responsiveness and relevance to its clients as well as its resilience and capacity as an organization - Program and Process Innovation, Marketing and Communications, Social Enterprise and Delivery Channels. Priorities for the new Executive Director will be as follows: Operationalize and manage the organizational changes necessitated by current funding models (including establishment of two new locations); Oversee and manage a diversification and expansion of funding (including the exploration of social enterprise opportunities), while providing support to staff and stakeholders affected by this change in culture; Deal with, and progress, branding and marketing issues (i.e., how to stay competitive in the field and position SfC as the lead expert on issues dealing with immigrant training and employment placement); and Retain existing partnerships and relationships while building new relationships within government, business and the variety of SfC stakeholders. Currently, there are strong programs and program management in place. There are excellent internal dynamics, with staff staying for long periods and being genuinely supportive of the organization and its mission. There are also strong partnerships with businesses, field agencies and government funders. Page 2 of 8
