£commensurate with the seniority of the role
Full-time, flexible working considered
Jnetics is the only cross-communal organisation dedicated to managing and preventing Jewish genetic disorders (JGDs) in the UK. We focus on genetic conditions that, although not exclusively Jewish, have a significant impact on the lives and well-being of Jewish people.
Our mission is to eliminate new cases of severe, recessive JGDs and to improve the management and prevention of dominant hereditary cancers that disproportionally affect our community.
As Chief Executive, you will be required to provide clear, strategic leadership in what is a challenging external environment for both fundraising and service delivery.
Our existing five-year plan expires at the end of 2021 and the new Chief Executive will have the opportunity of working with the Chair and Board of Trustees to set out the road map for the achievement of our ambitions.
We are committed to ensuring that our flagship GENEius education and screening programme for recessive disorders is maintained and expanded, and that we respond appropriately to developing thinking and research in relation to hereditary cancers.
This growth will require that opportunities for development are explored, that new funding sources are developed and that our infrastructure provides the capacity for delivery.
Quite simply, we aim ensure that no further children are born into the Jewish community with preventable recessive JGDs that devastate families, and that the communitys approach to managing the risk of hereditary cancers reflects best medical practice.
