We are working for a world where LGBT+ young people are fully included in society, with equal access to opportunities, living without fear of prejudice, discrimination and harassment. We are a Cambridgeshire based charity with big ambition and a voice and influence that belies our modest size. We are seeking an exceptional person to lead the team that takes the vision forward into an exciting future.
This is a great time to join a charity with a strong local and national profile, with exciting plans to expand our services to reach more LGBT+ young people across the county, increase our schools and training services and establish ourselves as the lead LGBT+ charity in the East of England. In 2020, we’ll embark on a new 3 year strategy so we’re looking for an experienced leader to facilitate and realise its development and delivery.
Our staff team, volunteers and trustees are incredibly passionate about The Kite Trust’s work and leading our organisation will be exciting challenging and rewarding.
Our work is guided by the following values. We are:
Supportive and Guiding.
We support, encourage and care.
Positive and Inclusive.
We nurture confidence, pride and happiness. We understand and support LGBT+ issues.
We provide opportunities to learn and grow.
Safe and Friendly.
We are trustworthy, professional and confidential. We are open, fun and relaxed.
With a strong history of delivery of services, we now need to focus on continuing our core programmes whilst maintaining and growing our profile. We have a strong business development track record and we need to consolidate and develop this.
The successful candidate will lead and manage a small yet dedicated team of staff and volunteers. As Chief Executive you will provide value based, clear and mission-driven strategic leadership to the charity, ensuring financial sustainability and growth. You’ll also act an ambassador for the charity and champion for young LGBT+ people.
We are looking for someone with proven experience of strategic leadership, empowering staff and volunteers, and growing programmes or services to deliver at scale. We expect you to work closely with the governing Board of Trustees to ensure the effective financial, legal and moral governance of The Kite Trust. You will need to be able to oversee programme delivery and bring the best out of the small dedicated team, delivering the strategic aims of The Kite trust in a creative and inspiring way that will engage others.
