    JOB DESCRIPTION
    Located in Vancouver, Canada, the Pacific Autism Family Centre (PAFC) will be a high quality resource for research, information, learning, assessment, treatment and support. PAFC plays an integral role in building capacity to address the lifespan needs of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. When construction is completed in 2016, the PAFC will be a completely new resource for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families in British Columbia and is intended to introduce major improvements to the quality and extent of services for individuals with ASD in BC. A community-based initiative, the Centre is the result of extensive planning efforts by a large number of individuals over the past five years. Within the next decade, the PAFC will significantly contribute towards British Columbia becoming the best place in the world for people with ASD and their families.

    An incredibly exciting and progressive opportunity exists to lead a world-class organization. The inaugural CEO of the Pacific Autism Family Centre will be an innovative and dynamic game-changer who continually strives for excellence on behalf of individuals living with and supporting those with ASD.

    The CEO will champion the mission, vision and values of the organization with a goal that ensures the PAFC builds upon existing lifespan services while at the same time addressing the need for support and services across the province. Reporting to the Board of Directors, the CEO will provide leadership and direction on all aspects of the Pacific Autism Family Centre’s activities, including day to day operations, strategic visioning, staffing, and volunteers. The CEO will have a strong focus on stakeholder relations, representing PAFC’s interests to regulatory bodies, other agencies, community and civic organizations, donors, funders and supporters, and the general public.

    The successful candidate must be a well-respected leader and a passionate advocate for children and adults with autism and their families. An ability to understand and remain current on autism research, resources and legislation is essential. He/she will be highly collaborative with the ability to successfully champion the cause at all levels, including provincially, federally and internationally. Proven experience creating successful foundations and structures within an organization will be key to success. The CEO will place integrity and ethics above all else and will be an engaging presence when meeting with families, stakeholders and the ASD community at large.

    If leading a pioneering organization that provides tangible results for those living with ASD and their families is the next step in your professional career, visit our website and submit your application to Shelina Esmail and Jennifer Madden at www.pfmsearch.com
