Are You Our Next Executive Director? 

Help Implement Amna's Ambitious Strategy to Create Joy and Belonging amongst Refugees and other Displaced Communities

Founded in 2016 as Refugee Trauma Initiative, Amna supports community and frontline workers to bring non-clinical mental health support to every person affected by violence and displacement. Our mission is to help communities heal from violence and displacement. Our vision is refugees determining their futures, unbounded by the impacts of conflict and displacement.

After six years of developing strong programs and delivering direct services for over 11,000 people, with an indirect reach of 1 million including families and children, Amna is experiencing rapid growth and implementing a demanding strategy to train local organisations, frontline workers and communities in healing techniques across multiple regions. 

Are you a results-focused, compassionate, resilient, and values-driven Executive Director who can implement our new strategy and lead expansion into 3 regions in the world? Working in partnership with the CEO, you will lead all operational functions of the organisation, bringing coherence to Amna’s strategy, drive execution and manage growth effectively. You will report to the CEO and support the CEO in reporting to the board of trustees. 

Are you a problem solver, with proven management experience of delivering outstanding operational results? Do you have a track record in implementing strategy, operationalising organisational visions and managing teams? 

Are you exceptionally good at extracting actionable insights from strategy; tackling urgent issues as they arise, yet anchor on longer-term strategic interventions in an agile, dynamic and growing organisation? We seek a strong leader with a respectful and energetic leadership style who crucially demonstrates passion for, and understanding of, the work and ethos of Amna. If this is you, we would welcome your application.

Amna wishes to encourage applications from experienced leaders drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds who can drive and inspire change for refugees and displaced people.

The role will be based in London and the salary is 70-75k. There is international travel with 30-40% of time in the field.
