Job description

WAY is the only national charity in the UK for men and women aged 50 or under when their partner died. Founded in 1997, WAY now has more than 3,800 members throughout the UK.  

We are recruiting a new CEO to lead our small but dynamic charity through its next important stage of development.  As we approach our 25th year, our organisation is now at a particularly exciting time in its journey and we are searching for our next Chief Executive who will provide clear leadership and deliver our new five-year strategic plan.  

To do that, you will review, update and deliver the fundraising, marketing and communications strategies, aligned with the wider charity strategy.    You will effectively manage a small team of dedicated staff, guide a large network of volunteers and will work closely with the Board of Trustees to ensure the effective financial, legal and moral governance of WAY. 

We’re looking for a vibrant, creative, and inclusive leader who will enthuse, encourage and inspire our staff and volunteers, offer understanding and empathy to our members, improve awareness of the organisation and continue to successfully lead the charity’s growth.  

You will need to be a hands-on leader with an understanding that the role is diverse in nature and you must be flexible to best meet the needs of the organisation and our members. 

If you have the passion, drive, skills and experience required to be the person to shape the future of WAY and the ability to develop our services, secure income streams, raise our national profile and be the face of the charity, please do download the recruitment pack for further details.
