Job description

Are you a succesful charity leader looking for a new challenge? Do you have the skills and qualities central to leading a diverse team of staff and volunteers providing critical services to older people in the London Borough of Bexley.

If the answer is yes we would like to hear from you.

Who we are

We are charity with 25 staff and 70 volunteers, specialising in support to older people in the London Borough of Bexley. The charity has undergone considerable change in the last three years, with further development likely. Older people constitute a substantial part of Bexley's population and our mix of services and support are geared toward reaching as diverse a proportion of that population as possible.

The charity finished in a strong financial position last year and with investment and forecast income continuing to grow this year and next the charity is in a positive position in terms of its sustainable development. With fully refurbished IT and digital infrastructure we operate a flexible approach to how our staff and volunteers work and the way we reach the boroughs older people.

We are an organisation that has worked hard to increase the diversity of those who work for us, volunteer for us and lead us as trustees. We continue to strive to challenge any barriers in the organisation that do not make us an inclusive and diverse one, particularly for those using our services.

To make us a more representative organisation we actively encourage those from Black Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds to consider us as a place to work and volunteer. This role is no different from any other within that context.

Who you are

You will be an experienced charity leader with a comprehensive understanding of the complexities and challenges of managing a small to medium sized community charity. You will have a robust understanding of business and financial governance, a good strategic brain and an ability to work across multiple operational and technical disciplines in supporting the charity's wider operations.

You will have a strong foundational understanding of the challenges facing older people now and in the future as well as the positive contribution they make to the boroughs communities and cultural life. you will be someone who sees older people as critical partners in the charity's development not just recipients of its services.

A Candidate Brief and other supporting documentation can be obtained by following the link to our website Recruitment Page.

If you wish to apply for this post please forward a comprehensive CV, along with a Supporting Statement of no more than two pages in addition to a completed equalities form.
