The South East Rivers Trust (SERT) is an environmental charity dedicated to achieving healthy river ecosystems for all across the South East of England. Our core values are central to all we strive to achieve, including bringing positive energy, expertise and specialist knowledge to develop good relationships and to deliver to a high standard making a real difference to rivers and their catchment areas.
The Interim CEO (Maternity Cover) will provide strategic leadership for the Trust. The role supports the Trustees in their good governance of the charity; supports the Management Team to implement strategy overseeing its integration into the organisation; and actively promotes the Trust to secure funding. The position is offered either part time (from 0.6 FTE) to full time and secondments would be considered.
We are looking for candidates experienced in leading and managing a charity or not-for-profit organisation, with a friendly and supportive management style to coach and mentor staff to fulfil their potential. A good understanding of funding opportunities, particularly those that will increase unrestricted income, would be an advantage. A background in the environmental sector and a knowledge of current environmental issues, especially relating to the aquatic environment would also be advantageous. We will also consider secondments from other organisations.
