The Board of Trustees are now seeking to appoint a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who is passionate and responsible for the leadership, growth, management and control of the Charity. The CEO will have primary responsibility for ensuring safeguarding, financial stability, health and safety, governance and legal compliance. The Charity pride themselves on their quality of service – you will need to ensure effective delivery of all services along with efficient Head Office support functions to support their continuing development and long-term strategy.
The CEO will be an experienced Senior Manager/Director with a genuine interest in inspiring their teams across Norfolk and Suffolk to achieve great things. An existing knowledge of the charity sector and local government would be an advantage, but this is by no means essential.
You will be comfortable working collegiately with a focused Executive and Senior Management team and be a visible leader for the organisation.
This role reports to the Chair of Trustees and is accountable to the Board of Trustees. Four operational Directors and two Specialist Senior Managers report directly to this position.
Our client are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of Children & Vulnerable Adults. An enhanced DBS check will be required for the successful applicant, in addition you will undertake a safer recruitment interview as part of the selection process.
The Charity fully embeds the Nurtured Heart Approach ® in all that it does and staff will adopt this approach as a part of their practice.
Information and training about this Approach will be provided.
