Job description

About us

Stonewall is a human rights charity. We stand for lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer, questioning and ace (LGBTQ+) people everywhere. We imagine a world where all LGBTQ+ people are free to be themselves and we can live our lives to the full.

Over the last 30 years, we have helped create transformative change in the lives of LGBTQ+ people in the UK. Our campaigns drive positive change in public attitudes and public policy. We ensure LGBTQ+ people can thrive throughout our lives by building deep, sustained change programmes with the institutions that have the biggest impact on us, whether we're learning, working, praying or playing sport.

The role

We now seek an ambitious Chief Executive Officer to support our communities, now and into the future - supporting among the governments, public services and employers that can make a difference to LGBTQ+ people’s freedom, equity and potential. You will play a pivotal role in advancing our mission, shaping the strategic direction, and ensuring our continued impact on LGBTQ+ rights and equality in the UK and beyond.

This is a highly visible role and involves working to influence public policy and societal attitudes, setting the tone and direction for the agenda of LGBTQ+ rights within civil society, both directly and through their connections. You will achieve this through engaging in extensive networking and providing visionary leadership, to create meaningful and lasting change for LGBTQ+ people. This includes campaigning and influencing to affect policy and legislative changes, building lasting relationships with key supporters, donors and partners that we work with, as well as working with others from across the LGBTQ+ rights and human rights movement. Importantly, you will foster a culture of inclusivity, and driving operational excellence across all facets of the organisation.

About you

You will be an inspirational, energetic, resilient leader, with previous experience of having worked as Chief Executive or senior leader in the field of policy, influencing and social justice. As an experienced influencer and exceptional communicator, you will have presented organisations professionally and appropriately to a range of audiences including the media, funders, civil society members, political figures and influencers across the UK and in local government, as well as clients and partners and the business community.

You will come with a commitment to and ability to role model our vision, purpose and values, and to LGBTQ+ rights and our approach to race equity and trans inclusion. Equally, you will understand and be aware of intersections of oppression and an understanding of power and privilege in the workplace. Crucially, you will be able to energise and develop a smart, driven team, and continue a process of organisational evolution and strengthening.

If this sounds like you, we strongly encourage you to apply, and particularly welcome applications from women, people of colour, trans and non-binary people and disabled people, who are currently under-represented in our Senior Leadership Team.
