Empowering a generation of young people to transform society
The Archbishop of York Youth Trust is passionate about developing opportunities for young people to grow in leadership, faith and character, in partnership with schools, churches and communities. Through the Young Leaders Award, the Youth Trust has empowered over 100,000 young people from over 950 schools to learn and practice key leadership skills and character virtues and to transform their communities through social action.
We are passionate about empowering young people to transform society and seek a CEO with a similar commitment. You will share our desire to be ambitious and creative in building on the success of our Young Leaders Award and in contribution to the vision of the Church of England to be younger, bolder and humbler.
To be successful in the role you need to be a clear strategic thinker with aspiration, imagination and inspiration who is ready to work with trustees and a committed staff team to develop and implement the vision needed for the next stage of our journey.
Senior-level strategic management responsibility for a charity, other not-for-profit organisation or relevant commercial business is essential as is experience of working or volunteering within a Christian faith-based setting and mission.
There is a Genuine Occupational Requirement (GOR) that the post-holder is a practicing Christian, either communicant member of the Church of England or a member church of Churches Together in England or the Evangelical Alliance.
Within the parameters of the GOR attached to the role, the Trust is committed to diversity and inclusion in its workforce and seeks to attract applications from the widest possible talent pool and to appoint on ability. The Trust strives to promote a culture where people can be themselves, are valued for their strengths and are recognised for the contribution they make to the achievement of our mission.
