Job Details

We are a charity that provides “away from home accommodation” for families who have a child in hospital. We are looking for a new CEO to work with the Board to create and deliver an ambitious strategy, lead us into the future and build on all of the tremendous work that the retiring current CEO and the team have done over the last 15 years.

The charity operates a portfolio of 13 houses across the UK, providing accommodation and support for families who need to stay with their child during their time in hospital. We have over 500 rooms and every year we support around 7,000 families at one of the most difficult points in their lives.

The charity has an income of £15 million of which around 60% is derived from relationships with a major multinational restaurant business, their Franchisees, Suppliers and Customers. Maintaining and developing relationships with these stakeholders is paramount.

Role title: Chief Executive Officer

Salary: circa £125,000 depending on experience

  • being a CEO or have worked at SMT level with wide-ranging responsibility at an organisation of comparable scale and complexity
  • developing effective relationships with a wide range of stakeholders, including service users / clients, employees, non-executive board members and large corporates
  • developing and implementing wide reaching strategic plans translating vision to reality
