Democracy Club strengthens democracy and civic engagement in the UK.
We are looking for a permanent CEO as passionate about serving voters and strengthening democracy as we are. Over the last 5 years we have laid firm foundations in elections and are looking for a permanent CEO to help grow our reach into services that support everyday democracy.
Our vision is of a country with the digital foundations to support everyone’s participation in democratic life. We tackle this in three ways:
- by providing world class tech services to government agencies
- mobilising a community of thousands of volunteers to independently support democracy
- building tools and services that enable voters, campaigners and representatives to exercise their democratic rights
Democracy Club is a non-profit, non-partisan, Community Interest Company, registered in 2015. We have worked alongside a community of 12,200+ volunteers and all councils in the UK, to collect 100% of all polling stations and candidates standing for election.
Using this data, we have served 1.9m voters with their polling stations and candidate lists in the last week of the 2022 local elections. Notably, we now run the Electoral Commission’s API and widgets, and in 2019 we sent 218m notifications in partnership with Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and SnapChat to remind people to vote with personalised directions to their polling stations.
Working in partnership is key to the success of our services. In and outside of elections we have provided democratic data and services to partners such as the Electoral Commission, Welsh Government, Facebook, Twitter, SnapChat, Google, Fawcett Society, The Times, Reach, Sky News and many others. We believe that democratic data should be as frictionless as possible to access and good digital infrastructure, paired with bold partnerships, are the best way of making that possible.
The CEO of Democracy Club wears many hats, and to be effective, must balance them all well. You will work alongside the board of directors and staff to serve democracy. Ultimately you will shape the organisation’s future by steering the team, our community of volunteers and all our stakeholders, in the right direction.
Outcomes in the first year
- Maintain and grow our digital offering around elections, with a focus on earned income
- Maintain and deepen our relationships with the Electoral Commission, AEA, Councils and other democratic stakeholders.
- Build on the Representatives Project to support everyday democracy
- Develop new partnerships with trusts and foundations
- Support the Democracy Club team with opportunities to learn and grow
- Working with the board determine Democracy Club’s future strategy, mission and vision
- Implement and deliver the strategy to build a stronger democratic ecosystem that empowers millions
- Ensure delivery and continued high quality of our existing core election products
- Implementation and delivery of new programmes, including project management
- Build relationships with new philanthropic funders
- Develop Democracy Club’s earned income streams
- Develop new partnerships with key stakeholders to support everyday democracy
- Manage governance and accounting to include cash flow, finances and accounts
- Manage HR functions, including opportunities for team development and growth
- Oversee/commission evaluation and research
What we are looking for
We have an exceptionally strong tech team led by a CTO. We are looking for the following skills that will complement the team we have.
- You are committed to the political neutrality of our work
- Experience of philanthropic or commercial fundraising and relationship building to support fundraising efforts
- Proven ability to manage operations and financial processes (if you don’t have finance experience in a non-profit context we can support you to learn what you need)
- Proven ability to engage and listen to a wide range of stakeholders, and to find practical ways through complex problems, and a track record of delivery of complex systems
- Line management and team leadership experience, you get things done and you empower and expect other people to get things done
- Experience of supporting goal setting, evaluation and accountability
- Understanding of the value of open, inclusive, and diverse teams and proven commitment to building a team where people feel empowered and valued
- Have the right to work in the UK
- Experience / understanding of delivery in agile working environment
