Job description

Location: Hybrid working, with ability to come to Banbury centre on a regular basis

We are working in partnership with Dogs for Good, who for over thirty years, have been utilising their knowledge and experience to bring people with disabilities and dogs together, enabling life-changing differences. Through the power of expertly trained dogs, they support people with autism, physical disabilities, learning disabilities and dementia, empowering them to live more independent lives.

With the retirement of the current Chief Executive, after more than twenty-five years in post, they are seeking a dynamic and forward-thinking individual to join the charity in this capacity to preserve and develop the organisation and provide inspired leadership to the staff team of 74, over 500 active volunteers and a wide range of stakeholders. The new Chief Executive must have a commitment to achieving high standards of dog welfare and a genuine interest in and passion for bringing people and dogs together to enrich and improve both lives and to better understand the human animal bond. A background in the charity/not for profit sector would be useful, although not essential.

The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate:

  • Experience of effective partnership working and development, and external relationship management
  • Experience of managing, motivating, and developing staff
  • Experience of business planning, business development and income generation/fundraising
  • Experience of project management and service delivery across multiple functions
  • Strong financial skills, including the ability to analyse budgets and accounts, and manage an annual budget of over £4m
  • Robust approach to governance, controls, and implementation of new processes
  • Experience of risk management

We are seeking an inspirational leader, with exceptional verbal and written communication, management, and motivational skills. Ability to persuade and influence, both face to face and in writing, outstanding business development skills, an empathy for vulnerable people and a strong commitment to animal welfare are all essential for this role.

For more information, please contact Adam Stacey, Managing Director, or Katherine Anderson-Scott, Senior Consultant, Charisma Charity Recruitment.
