Mario Lubetkin has announced his resignation, after 12 successful years as Director General (DG), effective 7 February 2014. IPS is looking for his successor.
The Director General leads, manages and speaks for IPS globally, guided by the overall strategic direction set by the international Board of Directors, always safeguarding the mission of IPS and its editorial values and integrity. The DG has direct responsibility for the financial, administrative and managerial operations of the global members of the IPS Group, and oversight of the other entities that are managed autonomously. The DG takes the lead role in fundraising with the official, foundation and private sectors to secure the financial health and sustainability of IPS, and manages relations with all its stakeholders.
IPS seeks a candidate with a strong background in media and the capacity to identify and interpret trends and innovation in the external context of IPS, as a global, Southern-focused media and communication actor, thus enabling the organisation to remain future-focused, viable and relevant. Candidates should have a proven track-record in fundraising and strong managerial capacities, in a multi-cultural environment. Ability to travel is required and fluency in both English and Spanish preferred. The current DG’s office is in Rome, Italy.
Full terms of reference are available upon request. Interested candidates are invited to send a CV and a letter of interest by 31 December 2013 to the address <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
