Job description

A unique and exciting opportunity has arisen for an innovative, resourceful and determined individual to join our high-profile and fast-paced organisation, and deliver WellChild’s flagship charitable programmes as our Director of Programmes. 

This is a diverse and challenging role responsible for the planning, implementation, delivery, day-to-day management and on-going development of the majority of the organisation’s direct charitable programmes, services and campaigns – putting key areas of the WellChild strategy into practice in a challenging post-pandemic environment. As an ambassador for the organisation, this role leads on strategic external relationships, staying on top of current issues which impact families, and acts as a champion for children’s voices to be heard at the highest level.

The successful candidate will be an exceptional leader with the vision and ability to inspire, manage and develop teams. You will have outstanding communication skills, be able to develop strong and positive relationships, work collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders, and represent and advocate at the highest levels and with key decision makers.

Experience of working at a senior strategic level within the health, social care, teaching, public health or charitable (or similar) environment combined with the knowledge and understanding of current issues, policy and priorities relating to children’s health and social care, is essential for this role.

As a member of the Senior Management Team (comprising CEO and three other Directors), the Director of Programmes helps to set organisational strategy, define areas of growth, and evaluate impact, and contributes to cross-functional problem-solving to ensure progress towards organisational goals. The role interacts with the Board of Trustees at quarterly meetings and has regular contact with external stakeholders, so you will also be experienced in working as part of a successful and progressive leadership team and have the ability to build and maintain relationships and trust quickly and effectively.

For the full job details please see the Job description and Person specification for this post.
