Provide overall leadership to the organisation accountable to the UMN Board of Trustees, including providing a mature spiritual climate within which UMN’s work will operate and encouraging spiritual and professional growth among the staff.

  • Oversee the management of the organisation, ensuring it achieves its strategic objectives while continuing to develop the organisation’s sustainability in a context of change, complexity and ambiguity in Nepal and globally.
  • Communicate, embody and promote the vision, mission and values of the organisation; and
  • Develop and maintain relationships with key stakeholders both locally and internationally, including the Government of Nepal and supporting donors.
  • Work with UMN Supporting Partners and other current and new funding sources to raise funds and develop the facilities and partnerships necessary to fulfil UMN’s Vision, Mission and strategy.
