Inspirational Chief Executive required to lead an ambitious and high-quality provider of services to adults and young people.
Career Connect is a North-West charity with a track record of delivering high quality and innovative services across the region, including working at a national and international level to further the promotion and impact of careers related services.
Our current Chief Executive, Kieran Gordon, is retiring and under his leadership we have become a nationally established brand leader of information, advice and guidance in the areas of careers, learning and employment. During this time, we have successfully navigated major changes in public policy and funding affecting the sector, by being innovative and creative in our thinking and delivery.
We are now seeking a new inspirational leader to become our next Chief Executive and help us build on our exceptional track record and shape our future. You will lead our committed team to seek new service opportunities, ensure that we constantly evolve and continue to deliver sustainable business outcomes. Working with an engaged Board of Trustees, you will lead the charity through the next era of our development to secure a confident future in these times of continuing uncertainty.
You will bring a values-based approach and an in-depth understanding of how to build and run agile service organisations, highly developed strategic abilities, experience of influencing commissioner/funder agendas and in securing significant funds from a diverse range of public and private sources. You are passionate about creating positive and sustainable outcomes along with the personal credibility to make a real difference.
Specific knowledge of the careers sector is not essential.
