This role is offered as an initial one year contract, with the possibility of extension subject to funding. This is a hybrid position, working both from home and the KCSC's West London offices twice a week.


Kensington & Chelsea Social Council is the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea's recognised voluntary sector 'infrastructure' organisation. A registered Charity, they support voluntary and community organisations (VCOs) through the provision of training, advice and information, and also facilitate the voice of the local voluntary and community sector (VCS) and represent the sector at a strategic level.


As the Deputy CEO, you will be responsible to the CEO and the Board in supporting the development of strategic plans, and lead on the effective and efficient delivery of KCSC's strategic and operational plans. You will lead in driving improvements through performance management, and the review of programmes and services. You will be a pivotal part of this strong outward-facing role, and will possess excellent communication, engagement and influencing skills with all stakeholders. You will be responsible for sustaining relevant key relationships, and building new partnerships across the voluntary, statutory and private sectors to further KCSC's mission in strengthening the local voluntary and community sector. You will take a lead role in the business development of KCSC, to help strengthen its strategic and operational position.

The successful applicant will have a strong background of relevant operations experience, and be an excellent leader and strong team player, with the ability to develop interactions between teams both internally and externally. You will have good Finance and analysis skills, be able to interpret and understand budgets and accounts, and produce budgets and management accounts and/or data.

You must be able to influence others.
