The new CEO will play a pivotal role in enabling us to widen our reach, including by using networking and partnership working skills to form strategic links with the primary healthcare sector and by taking an innovative approach to delivering services virtually. Your ability to establish robust measurements to demonstrate the value of our work will help to build compelling proposals to funders and commissioners, thereby building a sustainable platform for growth.

We are unashamedly ambitious and excited about the next phase of our development. To make these ambitions a reality will require a candidate with the right blend of vision, empathy and passion combined with the capability to identify and seize opportunities.
Inevitably, with growth comes change, both operationally and culturally. Success will depend on your ability to articulate an engaging vision and to inspire and lead the team with a shared sense of purpose where each individual feels enabled to perform to the best of their ability.

 
The ideal candidate will:
