Job description

The EY Foundation is a pioneering independent charity working to inspire and support disadvantaged young people across the UK to fulfil their work potential and to work with employers to reduce barriers to work. We bring together the professional rigour, resources and convening power of a large professional services firm with the innovation and dynamism of a start-up charity.

Chief Executive Officer


Any of our hubs in London, Manchester, Birmingham or Glasgow

This is a very exciting time to join us. The EY Foundation is now well-established, operating across the UK, and is building a strong track record for its work. We have navigated the pandemic and have a number of exciting growth opportunities to further support the young people who need that support more than ever.

We are now looking for a Chief Executive who can grow our impact substantially and inspire everyone that we work with. A key element of the role will be to ensure we live our values in all that we do and that our culture continues to adapt and thrive in the light of changing contexts. The Chief Executive will be supported by a highly committed Board who believe passionately that our values and culture are key resources for the charity and power our impact.

You will bring excellent leadership skills; experience of successfully managing complex and diverse stakeholders; strong financial acumen; the ability to represent and promote the Foundation to a wide range of audiences and the ability to raise significant funds from a range of sources. Critically you will share our strong commitment to supporting young people and a real drive to achieve social impact.

The EY Foundation is fully committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion within our organisation. We want this to be reflected in the diversity of the people who work for us and we welcome applications from people from all backgrounds and identities.
