We are working in partnership with Greenpower Education Trust which is a UK based education charity with an outstanding track record in kick starting careers in engineering.  They inspire young people aged 9-25 years old, around the world to excel in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), through a unique challenge of designing, building and racing a single seater electric car.

As they approach their 20-year anniversary, the charity is now seeking to appoint a Chief Executive Officer to take the organisation to its next phase of growth. With a strong and growing presence in the UK and internationally, the CEO will provide clear direction, develop and deliver the vision of the charity and bring it to life. The ideal applicant will share the charity’s passion and enthusiasm for their work and be motivated to extend and develop the reach of the organisation to ensure more young people take part in this engaging and unique activity.

The successful candidate will need to demonstrate:

  • Ability to understand the needs and perspectives of a broad range of stakeholders (ranging from participants and teachers through to commercial partners) and develop plans to respond to these
  • Track record of developing and delivering a plan to realise the vision of the charity
  • Experience in strategic leadership & development, planning and decision making
  • An understanding of finance and how to evaluate plans and choices
  • High levels of business acumen and commercial awareness

We are seeking a motivated, dynamic and engaging individual with excellent communication skills.  The successful candidate will need to have an appreciation of, or evidence of, their ability to understand the worlds of education, the charitable sector and the needs of commercial organisations keen to invest in workplace and STEM skills.

This is an exciting opportunity for the right individual.  If you feel you have the skills and experience to succeed in this role, we very much look forward to hearing from you.
