Chief Executive Officer
Full-time (4 days considered)
"Making an age friendly Enfield where everyone can love later life"
We have an exciting opportunity for the right person to lead the Enfields foremost older peoples charity to the next level - reflecting our mission to making an age friendly Enfield where everyone can love later life.
Age UK Enfield is a key and important provider of advice, dementia care and support, day care, information and advice, fitness and frailty support services in the diverse North London borough.
We are well respected and can boast a reputation for providing professional services that meet our client needs.
· Our services are broad in nature (care, advice, exercise, enabling), and reach around 7000 older people;
· There is a strong staff and volunteer team who have gone the extra mile to provide services during the Covid lock down periods.
Despite the challenges of the past two years, significant progress has also been made in improving our internal systems , processes and ways of working. We are focused on developing our existing services and this is where you come in as we are looking for a new CEO who can maintain this momentum and lead our staff and volunteer team.
We are looking to appoint someone with values strongly aligned to our own and a passion to support older people.
You will have leadership skills, knowledge of the charitable sector and experience of working in health, social care and/or advice, including preferably with older people. We are a small organisation, which needs a hands-on CEO, who can lead across all the services we provide. At the same time, we need someone who can see the big picture, position the organisation and work within a strategic framework.
Ideally, as you will be the external face of the charity, we will be looking to you to continue to build on existing stakeholder relationships; older people, trustees, staff, volunteers, funders and partners, as well as explore funding opportunities.
