The client were looking for a permanent, part-time chief executive to take over from an interim who had been in place since December 2019 and who had overseen the recruitment of six new trustees to the Board and a new fundraising manager. The Centre has six staff who work on a permanent, part-time basis, as well as volunteers, and so the new chief executive would need to possess good interpersonal skills and be able to interact with a wide variety of people.
They needed an inspirational leader who would help raise the organisation’s profile with key external stakeholders and donors, and ensure strong performance from the senior team. They would possess strong commercial acumen and income generation experience, understand charity governance and ideally have experience of cancer service provision. They would also need to live in good commutable distance to the Centre.
