Job description

Change Grow Live  

Director of Assurance

Competitive remuneration package

Location: Nationwide

Be open, be compassionate, be bold

Change Grow Live is a charity, with income of £250 million, over 4,000 staff and 1500 volunteers.

Every year they support more than 200,000 people affected by social and economic deprivation, trauma and abuse, homelessness, offending and alcohol and substance misuse. Because they're not a business, they're not looking to make a profit. This allows them to focus on making sure that everything they do is helping the people who use their services, and the wider public too.

Many of Change Grow Live’s staff have previously used their services. Others started as front-line workers, volunteers or peer mentors (including their Chief Executive).  This is a huge strength. Having that first-hand, frontline experience means Change Grow Live’s staff are in the perfect position to support their service users and their staff on the ground - they've been there, so they get it.

Change Grow Live look at the data and carry out research and analysis to make sure that everything they recommend is not just safe, but also the most effective treatment. They never stop learning and looking for new evidence, either.

Since starting as a small local charity in Sussex in the 1970s, Change Grow Live has grown to offer more than 200 services across the UK annually. Their size gives stability, because there’s a solid infrastructure, systems and processes. It also means they can learn a lot and make continuous improvements by sharing learnings and best practice between all of their services.

We believe in people  

Change Grow Live’s work is informed by a simple principle that experience tells them works: Believe in People. This means they believe in their staff's expertise and judgement and strive to create the conditions for them to do their best work. It means they believe that everyone has the right to pursue their goals and aspirations. And it means they believe that, with the right opportunities and support, anyone can change their life for the better.
