We are looking for a dynamic and forward looking Chief Executive to lead Home-Start Hertfordshire on to its next stage of development and sustainable future. The foundations are securely in place with a strong, experienced team of dedicated trustees, staff and volunteer family mentors who have a track record of delivering a high quality service.
Home-Start Hertfordshire believes every parent should have the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life. The early years of a child’s life makes the biggest impact: Home-Start makes sure those years count so that no child’s future is limited.
Home-Start Hertfordshire is a voluntary organisation that provides support to families through challenging times helping to prevent family crisis and breakdown. Support is provided by highly trained volunteer family mentors who work alongside parents, often in their own homes, to help them cope with the stresses and strains of life.
The team has adapted the usual face to face contact with families to offer a telephone support service throughout the Covid pandemic, this has added to the menu of services that will be offered to families in the future.
The successful candidate will:
- Be an experienced Senior Project Manager/CEO with a demonstrable track record of successfully running an organisation within a relevant field.
- Possess strong leadership, strategic management and governance skills as well as being creative and solution focused.
- Ensure a high profile for Home-Start Herts developing and engaging high value funders, sponsors and donors.
- Identify and secure new opportunities for strategic partnerships and income generation.
