About the role:
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a national charity that believes all young people should have the opportunity to discover their passion and their purpose; to find out what they’ve got and where it could take them. This Chief Executive role is strategic, requiring effectiveness at a high level, yet at the same time it demands detailed and hands-on management. You will have responsibility for a revenue budget of £1.35m per annum and a state-of-the-art Youth Zone building. You must be able to influence effectively at a senior level, while also be willing to get stuck into the detail; all this in an environment without corporate support structures. As Chief Executive, your relationship with the Chair of the Board will be supportive and challenging, enabling you to deliver on-going success for the Youth Zone.
Key responsibilities will include:
As an exceptional leader, motivated to improve young people’s lives for the better, you will have the ability to think strategically and develop a long-term vision, bringing with you a successful track record of developing organisations or large teams, proven experience of generating significant income and time spent in the voluntary sector and/or working with young people. Your communications and people management skills will be strong, together with an ability to build inclusive relationships and display excellent judgement and focus at all times.
Although the successful candidate will be based in Hammersmith & Fulham when the Youth Zone is open in late 2023, they will spend the first 4 months working alongside an established team in one of our other London based Youth Zones.
You may also have experience in areas such as CEO, Chief Exec, Chief Executive, Director, Head of, Senior Executive, Managing Director, MD, Manager, Board Member, Chair of the Board, CFO, COO, Family, Family Services, Family Support, Community Support.
