Eating Disorders North East (EDNE) delivers high quality specialist counselling, both virtually and in person for people affected by eating distress. They provide support groups for family and friends and deliver a range of workplace training to a diverse portfolio of clients across the voluntary, statutory and private sectors. They facilitate group sessions pre and post counselling, raise awareness with young people and professionals, as well as contribute to academic research into eating disorders. The work they do is truly unique and incredibly necessary.
Charity People are thrilled to be supporting EDNE as they search for a new CEO to join their team and lead them through a new and exciting stage in their journey.
As Chief Executive Officer you’ll give direction and vision to their unique services in the North East for people affected by eating distress. This is a crucial role at a key moment in their 33-year history as they take the next step in their development. A key element of this role will be to implement a sustainable strategy for the charity’s future built on robust relationships with commissioners, contracting agencies, and funders. You’ll lead the organisation through a significant change as it responds to the increased support needs of people affected by eating distress.
As Chief Executive Officer, you will have responsibility for strategic leadership and planning across EDNE’s range of services, inspiring their small core team, counsellors, and sessional workers. You’ll support the diversification of income and extend the operation and influence of the vital work they do. This role provides a fantastic opportunity for those already operating at SLT level, but they are also very open to someone who is looking to take that next step in their career towards wider strategic and operational influence. They are looking for someone who can demonstrate a proven track record of successful management and credible leadership, with the ability to exercise influence, motivate, encourage, and provide a clear vision for the future. The incoming CEO will also come with a track record of building high level relationships with existing and potential stakeholders: health commissioners, public sector institutions, local authorities, donors, foundations, and other funders.
EDNE are based in central Newcastle but they are very open to hybrid working. They also welcome conversations about flexible working requests.
Closing 22nd of June at 9am.
