Details of Role: 

Peridot Partners has partnered with Wellspring Settlement to recruit their new Chief Executive. If you are a collaborative and exceptional people leader, passionate about working to strengthen communities, this could be the role for you.

Wellspring Settlement is a charity run for, and led by, the community. We aim to work to ensure that everyone in our community has all the opportunities to live the best life they can. With a particular focus on the residents of Lawrence Hill, Easton, and the surrounding neighbourhoods, we offer a unique space for residents to celebrate, learn, create, develop, relax, socialise, and play.

This is an important and exciting time for Wellspring Settlement as we emerge from the Covid pandemic and embark on our ambitious new strategy. It has been two years since the merger of Barton Hill Settlement and Wellspring Healthy Living Centre, and we are now more committed than ever to combining our areas of work, releasing potential for new service delivery and responding to the ever-growing challenges of our community.

In order to achieve our ambitions, we are seeking a driven and dynamic Chief Executive with a voluntary sector leadership background and a demonstrable commitment to strengthening communities.

You will have the entrepreneurial skills to recognise and act on beneficial opportunities for the organisation and the communities Wellspring Settlement work with. In addition, you will be financially astute and bring experience of generating income to support our organisation priorities, objectives and values.

It is critical that our Chief Executive brings exceptional people leadership skills, alongside the ability to build and retain excellent relationships with our partners and stakeholders. You will be a confident and credible ambassador, with the ability to influence and collaborate at all levels within the sectors we operate in.

Above all else, you will be intrinsically values driven, able to demonstrate your commitment to equalities and how you have developed services and structures around the needs of underrepresented groups.
