ISANS is looking for our next leader

In June, ISANS Chief Executive Officer, Jennifer Watts, announced her plan to retire next year after more than five years of exceptional leadership. She has been a true beacon for ISANS over her five years as our CEO, building agility and capacity within the association and deepening our relationships and impact with funders and community partners.

While we look forward to celebrating Jennifer’s outstanding contribution to ISANS in the coming months, we are also looking forward to finding the ideal candidate to lead our organization into the future.

To that end, we have begun the process of recruiting a new CEO.

As the leading immigrant settlement service agency in Atlantic Canada, serving over 10,000 clients annually in 104 communities across Nova Scotia, with over 400 full-time and part-time staff, 750 volunteers, and 90 interpreters, ISANS requires a CEO who is a compassionate, resilient, and progressive visionary with a track record of guiding an organization through change and building their capacity. The ideal CEO also possess an unparalleled dedication to creating a safe, welcoming, inclusive community where all can belong and grow, building a stronger Nova Scotia and Canada in turn.

For more information about this exceptional opportunity to innovate and lead the immigration and immigrant settlement sectors in Nova Scotia during a time of unprecedented growth, please visit talent and recruitment firm Royer Thompson’s Leadership Opportunities.
