Prospectus is delighted to be working with The Harrow Club, in the recruitment of their new Joint Chief Executive Officer. This role is offered on a permanent full-time basis, and will report to the Chairman of the Board of Trustees.
The Harrow Club has been creating positive futures for marginalised young people in Kensington, Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham since 1883. Their vision is to have a society where all children and young people, regardless of background, can grow and fulfil their potential in a safe and supportive community. Through general youth clubs and specialist interventions, The Harrow Club aim to empower young people to complete their education, avoid anti-social behaviour and become positive contributors to society. The organisation also aims to create the model youth club to meet the needs of the current time.
Their mission is to focus on the most marginalised young people, with the aim of getting them away from criminality and youth violence through programmes such as Another Way.
As the Joint Chief Executive Officer, you will be working alongside the existing CEO, an experienced community leader, who will be focussed on the development and management of The Harrow Club's youth work and associated programmes in which he has many years of experience. The Joint CEO role will lead on the operational functions of club, including driving funding and the development of external relationships. You will be a member of the Senior Management Team with the chance to genuinely shape and grow the strategy of youth charity that has an impressive track-record in working creatively and compassionately with some of London's most vulnerable young people.
The successful applicant will have substantial experience in a senior managerial position with organisational responsibility. You will have excellent organisational and administrative skills, and a willingness to 'get the job done.' You should possess the ability to show flexibility and approachability when working in a small team, as well as demonstrable financial acumen and considerable experience with budget management. You will have experience of hiring, onboarding new staff members and managing staff, as well as a proven track record of delivering on plans and effectively juggling priorities. You will be collaborative and supportive as a team player and leader - being able to work successfully with others and inspire them to do their best. You will possess excellent interpersonal and influencing skills, with the ability to take ownership.
