WUP is asking for interested parties in providing CEO services to submit a response to the Request for Proposal (RfP) for this important appointment. This is an exciting international role to expand the impact, membership, alliances and resources of World Urban Parks. We are seeking persons or an organisation with strong strategic, leadership, marketing, communications, resourcing and organisation development skills to lead the organisation.
Established two years ago World Urban Parks champions healthy, liveable, and sustainable cities and communities. The organisation has developed conference, committee, certification and social media services and is poised for growth.
The WUP Board and Executive expect the future CEO will have a heavy focus on the development of the membership of WUP along with its public profile. While the initial operating period has focussed on the establishment of WUP, the organisation is now in the position to take the next step in our evolution, with the focus needing to be on growth in terms of scope of services, membership (numbers) and revenue generated. To this end, it is expected that the time commitment required may be initially up to 24 hours per week, with this potentially growing as the organisation grows.
While it is expected that predominantly individuals (either sole traders or within an existing organisation) may be interested in providing this service, the WUP Board continues to be interested in individuals or member organisations suggesting other possible service provision models.
