WFN is governed by a committed trustee board. Our small team is dynamic, hard-working and strives to go above and beyond expectations. The charity benefits from high profile support from Patron, HRH The Princess Royal, Trustee Sir David Attenborough, and Ambassadors Kate Humble and Tom Heap. Next year, WFN will be marking its 30th anniversary, which provides a special opportunity to celebrate 30 years of supporting inspiring conservation leaders, and to look to the future. In line with our ambition to raise £3m/year by 2025, we are expanding our team to meet targets and increase the amount of support we can channel to our growing network of conservationists around the world as we seek to further raise their profile and foster south-south collaborations among WFN alumni.

To get there, we dream up projects, build tools and spread success stories to make sure everyone has the help and inspiration they need to play a role in tackling climate change. Our work cuts carbon, but because we work on cultural as well as technical levels, we get people talking about climate change action too.

We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, and particularly welcome applications from people with experiences of homelessness.
IN A NUTSHELL
We are looking for a strategic, business-minded individual with an interest and awareness of complex social issues such as homelessness and experience of working with multi-disciplinary teams in a fast-paced environment. The Head of Corporate Services role is hands on, balancing workload, foresight and leadership skills, to drive the function forward to help CHI scale our impact.
You will be a key member of the leadership team, providing advice and support to the CEO and others on all finance and people issues. Both sets of issues are important to the Centre as we prepare for a period of rapid growth in budget (from c. £2M to £3M) and headcount (18 to 24), with associated challenges around recruitment and onboarding of new staff. You will also be a skilled administrator and process designer, maintaining an up to date and sound set of policies and procedures for all aspects of the organisation (including Equality, Diversity and Inclusion).
Given we are a small and agile organisation, you need to be comfortable managing a broad remit, overseeing the governance, finance, operations and human resources of the organisation. We are looking for someone who has a “no task too big, no task too small” attitude, with a natural inclination to get their hands dirty.
WHY IS THIS ROLE IMPORTANT FOR THE CENTRE’S WORK?

The Head of Corporate Services plays a vital role in supporting the financial health of the organisation and navigating CHI’s development from an accounting and finance perspective. You will play a key role in ensuring compliance and analysing financial data, as well as in developing and implementing the Centre’s talent strategy, helping to recruit and develop great people who will help us achieve our goals around impact.
You will work closely with the Chair of the Board on the governance of the organisation, preparing and minuting Board meetings, and ensuring that good practice in governance is followed at all times. Within the leadership team, you will handle a range of issues, strategic and practical, setting up systems and engaging with stakeholders so that the Chief Executive and the rest of the team can focus on where they add most value.
This role demands a high level of motivation, discretion, and empathy, as well as an extremely high level of detail and organisation. You will represent CHI in an energetic and professional manner, both internally and externally. Flexibility, curiosity, and prioritisation are key given the dynamic nature of the role and of the organisation.
