Full Time
Contract Type

Since 1989, Stonewall campaigns have brought about significant improvements in the rights and lives of lesbian gay, bi and trans (LGBT) people in the UK. Europe’s largest LGBT charity, we’re at a critical stage of our development having just embarked on a new five-year strategic plan.

As our interim Executive Director of Campaigns and Strategy you’ll play a pivotal role in delivering this plan and harnessing its fundraising opportunities to ensure maximum impact and income generation. Working closely with the Membership, Empowerment and Fundraising teams, you’ll provide visionary strategic leadership and assist departmental directors and managers in ensuring key objectives are delivered throughout the organisation. A fundamental part of our strategy is engaging more diverse LGBT communities and intersectional activities, so you’ll take a broader view without losing sight of critical detail, including operational risk.

A member of the Executive, you’ll take joint-ownership of the organisation’s budget, setting and signing off campaign budgets and ensuring programmes are delivered within them. Central to this will be working with the Executive Director of Business Development and Chief Operations Officer to strengthen Stonewall’s strategic and business-planning frameworks.

Proven experience in a leadership role in an organisation of comparable scale, reputation and complexity is an absolute must have. You’ll also be able to demonstrate the ability to deliver cross-organisational campaigns to measurable KPIs, and of working across the UK with national offices. Similar experience at an international level would be ideal. Your strategic planning and analytical skills should be matched by financial acumen, a commercial perspective and an ability to assess long and short-term risk.

Skilled at motivating and inspiring others, you’ll have a collaborative leadership style and the gravitas, credibility and media skills to represent Stonewall across a range of platforms.

If you’re excited about bringing real change to real lives – and have the mix of skills and experience necessary to continue our campaigning and operational success – please complete and return an application form by 9.30am on the 10th December.

This is an interim role to cover maternity leave for 12 months ideally starting around January/February 2019.
