Chief Executive Officer Mercy International Association

Mercy International Association is seeking a Sister of Mercy for the position of Chief Executive Officer. The role of the Chief Executive Officer is to provide leadership and inspiration for the implementation of the Association’s vision in a global Mercy context. This role, based in Dublin, Ireland, is characterised by unity in diversity, inclusion and respect for our multiple cultures, languages and local realities.  The Chief Executive Officer represents the Association publicly and is its spokesperson.

The ideal candidate will be a Sister of Mercy deeply grounded in the Gospel and the legacy of Catherine McAuley. The Sister will have demonstrated the capacity to gather the inspiration and energies of Sisters of Mercy, associates and colleagues in ministry. She will have proven experience in leadership (at least five years in a comparable role), and an effective team builder.

Sisters interested in learning more about this role and responsibilities are invited to email the Board Chair, Sister Denise Fox, for information and application materials. Sisters who apply will be asked to provide a letter of support and reference from their Congregation Leadership.

The new CEO will commence in January 2020 and Sister Mary Reynolds will be available until March 2020 to assist with the transition of leadership.

The candidates for interview will be invited to visit with the Board of Directors of Mercy International Association. The visit will be ‘in person’ in Dublin on the weekend of 18 and 19 May 2019.

If you are intending to apply we request you reserve these dates so that you can be available on 18 and 19 May in Dublin if you are invited to the next stage in the process of appointment.

Applications from Sisters of Mercy close on Tuesday, 23 April 2019 at 5 pm Dublin time.

Please address all inquiries and your application to the Board Chair, Sr Denise Fox. E:
