Job description

Are you committed to ‘Improving Local Lives’ across Calderdale and Kirklees? If so, this could be the role for you.

At VAC (Voluntary & Community), we are on a mission to create connections, solutions and opportunities that build stronger communities. We provide services to the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector (VCSE) and have been doing so since 2000. Our vision is to promote positive social change to improve local lives.

As a member organisation, VAC delivers a range of services including organisational development support, driving quality across the sector and influencing local and regional developments, as well as creating opportunities for the VCSE across Calderdale and Kirklees.

Over the past few years, VAC has seen significant development and has been recognised for continuously developing and delivering needs led services and projects and has become a recognised name across all sectors within the local landscape.

Our outgoing Chief Executive has led the organisation through a period of positive transition, shifting and consolidating the organisation and integrally aligning our work with our values.

About the Role

VAC is now looking ahead to an exciting period of growth and development and as part of the journey, we are seeking a dynamic and experienced Chief Executive Officer who can lead this next stage.

You will be an inspiring leader who can take us forward on our journey, build on our success and continue to ensure that we provide an integral voice to the Voluntary and Community sector.

You will be someone who can embrace our values, build and model a positive culture and commit to the work of the Voluntary and Community sector. An experienced senior manager, you must have the ability to drive strategic development and set a clear and compelling direction for the charity.

People-focused, you should be able to engage with a broad range of stakeholders and partners and build relationships that will contribute strategically to developments across the VCSE landscape.

We are looking for an individual who has the ability to negotiate, influence and operate as a credible and effective ambassador. Diplomatic, tactical and agile, you will be able to work across a complex landscape with a diverse set of members and partners. With sound financial acumen, you must have the ability to identify new opportunities for funding and income development.

Above all you will have a deep-rooted commitment to improving local lives across and beyond Calderdale and Kirklees, putting our community of the heart of everything we do.
