Job description

Our funders and partners see Youth Engagement Solutions (YES) as an inclusive organisation that transforms local communities by enabling all young people to belong, contribute, and thrive. YES is based in Wembley in the heart of the London Borough of Brent and strives to turn disadvantaged children and young people away from antisocial behaviour, unemployment, and social exclusion to play a positive role in society.


Our current CEO, Carmen Llorente started the charity in 2015, and is now stepping aside to create a Community Interest Company (CIC) where the Charity’s football club will be managed as a subsidiary of YES. Therefore, we seek an exceptional CEO who is motivated, driven, and excited by the opportunity to continue the development and implementation of new and existing projects.


This is a challenging role and in collaboration with the Board of Trustees, the incoming CEO will take the lead on the strategic direction for the charity, offering support and guidance to the Board. They will oversee every area of activity and support the Services Manager Team in their operational delivery of services.


As the Ambassador for YES both locally and regionally the CEO will demonstrate strong influential and engagement skills which will ensure effective collaborations with partners, funders and stakeholders. The successful candidate will have a minimum of five years’ experience as a senior leader within a comparable environment with a track record of strategic and commercial experience required to keep YES supporting its community.


Young people are central to 'who we are' and 'what we do' therefore we believe that the successful postholder should share this perspective and equally be motivated by working with some of London's most inspiring young people.


If you feel that you have the skills, experience and sector knowledge to fulfil this position then we would be delighted to receive your application.  Please visit YES Website  where you can download the CEO Recruitment pack which includes the job descriptions and person specification.
