The Cares Family is an anti-racist organisation committed to advancing inclusion. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people, who are under-represented in our organisation. We are an equal opportunities employer.
For 10 years, The Cares Family has been helping people find connection in a disconnected age, by tackling isolation and loneliness and building community togetherness. With the arrival of the pandemic, loneliness is better understood than ever and empathy for people experiencing it has increased. The Cares Family is therefore at a moment of opportunity to make an even bigger difference in the years ahead – by driving a ripple effect of change everywhere in the UK.
Amid a time of continued uncertainty in society, and opportunity at The Cares Family, and with medium term plans to appraise the overall structure of our organisation which may include making this position permanent, we are looking for an Interim Managing Director to help us navigate that period.
As Interim Managing Director of an organisation of nearly 50 staff, you will report to our CEO and manage a team of three Directors – our Director of Programmes, Director of Projects and Director of Development. You will galvanise that Senior Leadership Team, create processes that support and enable all our colleagues, and nurture the culture of the organisation as a whole. You will also oversee and develop the systems and policies that underpin The Cares Family, holding ultimate responsibility for ensuring good monitoring, evaluation and learning, sound HR management, the application of fair processes, and the adherence to organisational values. We are looking for someone with experience who can lead with empathy and who is passionate about further developing The Cares Family.
If that sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you.
