Director Central Services
London E1 and hybrid working
Citizens UK is a people power alliance of diverse local communities working together for the common good.
Our member communities are deeply rooted in their local areas. These schools, universities, churches, mosques, synagogues, parent groups, health trusts, charities and unions, are important civic institutions which connect every day to the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
Through the method of Community Organising we enable communities and local leaders to develop their voice and come together with the power and strategy to make real change.
Our member organisations are our power base and we put people in the lead. We believe civil society is more effective if the organised institutions - like schools, churches or residents' groups - work in alliance together. Every issue we work on is prioritised by our members and the great achievements we've had in the last 30 years have been made possible through the hard work of thousands of people who've taken action together.
The great achievements we've had in the last 30 years have been made possible through the hard work of thousands of people who've taken action together on the concerns facing them and their communities.
We are an organisation that achieves impact. From the issues that arise from local listening, we develop sophisticated social change strategies that change the UK for the better, such as our Living Wage campaign that has won £2bn for low-paid workers. We have successfully campaigned to persuade the Government to stop exploitative lending by capping the cost of credit. And we were instrumental in the introduction of a new law to prevent the detention of children for immigration purposes.
As Director of Central Services you will play a key leadership role at Citizens UK and be a member of the Executive Team. Collaborating with the Executive Director and with our Executive Team, you will shape and implement the overall mission and strategy of Citizens UK. Together you will help to provide the strategic leadership that embeds our values and culture and that will secure future sustainability and good growth through what is a period of rapid expansion.
Specifically, you will be responsible for the strategy and delivery of our core internal functions including finance, human resources, facilities, systems and infrastructure. This includes the leadership and line management of a highly motivated team of staff to deliver effective day to day running of the organisation.
