Depaul Ireland works with people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in Ireland, North and South. Established in Ireland in 2001, it is an active member of Depaul International and works closely as part of the Vincentian Family with people of all faiths and none.  Its mission is to end homelessness and change the lives of those affected by it.  With a staff body of c.500 and an operating budget of c.€20m, Depaul works in collaboration with the HSE, the Dublin Regional Homeless Executive, The Probation Service and The Northern Ireland Housing Executive.  Depaul supports the principle of Housing First, Depaul has pioneered new programmes and models of service delivery and in 2017, established Depaul Housing Association. As a modern; dynamic and driven organisation, Depaul is committed to adapting to a changing social care context and to putting service users at the heart of everything it does.

The Board of the Depaul now wishes to appoint a Chief Executive who will:

To reflect Depaul’s ambition, the ideal candidate will have: a demonstrable track record as a strategic thinker, team leadership at an organizational level and a collaborative approach to drive the delivery of a shared vision for the future.  The qualities of authenticity, compassion and commitment to service users are pivotal to this role, together with the leadership skills to ensure Depaul’s services are as aspirational in their ambition, as they are sustainably funded to meet the needs of all its service users.
