Summit Search Group Partners with 1JustCity on Pro Bono Search

July 2022.  We are pleased to announce that Summit Search Group has partnered with 1JustCity on their search for their new Executive Director in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

In January 2022, Summit Search Group launched our inaugural pro bono executive search initiative for nonprofit organizations in Manitoba in support of identifying a new senior professional to help advance their mission. Every year, the Summit Search Group Winnipeg team will provide a pro bono search for a local Manitoba nonprofit organization.

Summit Search Group began accepting Request for Proposals (RFP) on January 24, 2022 and received a number of responses from mission-driven organizations. Applications were thoroughly reviewed by a panel of Summit Search Group team members and informational interviews were held with a shortlist of organizations that matched the eligibility criteria.


After a thorough review and informational interview process, Summit Search Group selected 1JustCity and will lead the process of recruiting their new Executive Director.

1JustCity’s mission is to strengthen and sustain social justice work in Winnipeg through the financial support of its member charities. They do this by loving the underloved. This looks like a pair of socks, a warm place to sleep, someone who is always happy to see you, just as you are.

The new Executive Director will be responsible for the fundraising and operations of the various sites, plus supporting an affiliated site with staffing, funding and other resources. This is a true Executive Director position, with a focus on human resources, finances, funders, donors and operations. The successful candidate must be rooted in social justice and be ready to be flexible, creative and adaptable.
