We are seeking a Chief Executive to provide strong strategic leadership that enables a powerful voice for our students through our next stage of growth. Building on the successful increases in engagement, diversity and visibility in our Big Plan strategy (2014 to 2019), the Chief Executive will work closely with student officers, staff and King’s College to develop and implement our next strategy, which will be determined by our students. The Chief Executive will guide a democratic organisation where students lead us at every level, including our majority student trustee board, and will coach and support student officers to empower our student members to deliver impact. They will also build and maintain relationships with a wide range of stakeholders, including with student officers, staff and King’s College.
We are seeking a visionary and inspirational leader and coach who is values driven and supports others to lead. With direct experience of working within membership organisations and a track record of developing successful strategies with stakeholders, our new Chief Executive will be a strong facilitator, with experience of enabling staff to work effectively. Adept at corporate governance, the Chief Executive will be confident working within a complex governance environment and crucially will be collaborative and ‘low ego’; motivated primarily by others succeeding over achieving their own personal agenda.
