Job description

About the role

As Chief Executive, you will lead Year Here’s strategy, ensuring that we are running a Fellowship that is genuinely transformative, making profit and maintaining a happy and high-performing team. You will lead our commercial activity and fundraising, shape our social innovation curriculum and manage our day-to-day operations.

Your responsibilities will be to:

  • Develop and direct our strategy, with the expert input and scrutiny of our board;
  • Drive our commercial activity: fundraising, recruiting brilliant Fellows and selling cutting-edge projects;
  • Shape our social innovation curriculum and provide inspiration and intellectual direction to the Fellows;
  • Lead our 8-strong multidisciplinary team and build the structures and rituals that keep them on track;
  • Ensure day-to-day operations are seamless and streamlined – enabling programme, relationships and governance effectiveness; and
  • Get stuck into delivery.

Who we’re looking for

We’re looking for a confident and entrepreneurial leader with strong financial management skills. You’ll also have a solid grounding in the field of social impact and innovation.

As a leader, you’ll be a grafter with bags of ambition. You teach yourself new skills and solve your own problems, rather than waiting for guidance from others.

Essential qualities include:

  • Significant management capabilities, including P&L and HR responsibilities.
  • Commercial / sales experience;
  • A background in the social impact field;
  • Exceptional analytical and problem-solving skills; and
  • Excellent communication and relationship-building skills.

We are committed to not discriminate on grounds of gender, marital status, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, mental health, religion or age. We are trying to build a diverse team and strongly encourage applications from women and minorities. 

Who we are

Since launching at 10 Downing Street in 2013, we’ve worked with over 200 aspiring social entrepreneurs and launched 34 award-winning social ventures like Cracked It, Birdsong and Chatterbox.

Our Fellowship is an immersive, action-oriented postgrad course. Each year, we recruit two cohorts of around 20 Fellows, professionals from diverse and multidisciplinary backgrounds. They learn at the frontline of inequality – in care homes, homeless hostels and schools across London. Then, supported by a rigorous social innovation curriculum and industry mentoring, they found some of the most promising social startups in the UK. Our new Accelerator supports those emerging ventures with investment, specialist business support, access to clients, and office space.

Year Here is a social enterprise; meaning that our purpose is to create positive change in society rather than to maximise shareholder profits.

How to apply

The closing date for the role is midnight on Sunday 22nd March although we will be conducting interviews on a rolling basis.
