We are looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic leader who can inspire and lead our committed staff of 100 people and who can work with our Trustees to provide more services to more people in need. They will be supported by an excellent team of professionals including an experienced and dynamic group of directors.
Whilst we need someone who understands our work, our particular focus is on finding an individual with demonstrable skills in the fields of charity/third sector leadership (including public speaking on behalf of the charity with government, media and other key stakeholders) and proven fundraising experience (from foundations, government departments and private donors). Working with our fundraising team we currently need to raise £1.7m each year to keep our vital work ongoing.
The charity has its main bases in Bromsgrove (Worcestershire) and Epsom (Surrey) with smaller offices in Edinburgh and Cardiff. The CEO should expect to be based in one of the two main offices and willing to travel to the other sites. Most of the Trustee meetings are in Central London.
We are offering a salary range between £62k and £75k per annum; however more might be readily available for an exceptional candidate.
