Details of Role: 

Age UK South Gloucestershire is looking to recruit a new CEO to provide leadership and strategic direction to our charity,  leading us into a bright and exciting future. 

We believe we make a positive contribution to the lives of hundreds of older people in South Gloucestershire every week.  Based from our main office in Thornbury High Street, we actively design services that meet the wants and needs of local older people and their families by:

•             tackling loneliness and isolation

•             promoting health, wellbeing and independence

•             supporting families and carers

•             helping people access services and financial benefit entitlements

•             enabling people to get the most out of life

We respond to thousands of enquiries each year with our range of services, which include Activity Day Centres, Befriending, Digital Inclusion, Improving Homes and Wellbeing, Information & Advice provision, specialist Benefits Advice, Reconnect, Walking Groups and Volunteering opportunities.

We are looking for someone who can develop our organisation and seek opportunities for further activities and diversify our funding to deliver these.  Strategic partnerships are important to us, we greatly value the relationships we have with our funders and other organisations who share a similar vision.  We need someone who has the experience to nurture and develop these further.

Our ideal candidate will already be working in a senior leadership role, probably in a charity that supports adults who find life challenging from time to time.  You will be a strategic thinker, an active listener and have the confidence to challenge the status quo. We are looking for someone who can motivate, support and inspire our hardworking and committed staff team and volunteers.  You will also be able to demonstrate evidence of effective business planning, financial acumen, experience of project management and an understanding of the regulatory framework within which we operate.  

Age UK South Gloucestershire offers a generous benefits package, and the charity is committed to equalities, diversity and inclusion and therefore encourages applications from all sectors of the community.
