Chief Executive Officer

Salary: Competitive

We are a London based charity with over 30 years of experience of working with some of society’s most vulnerable people helping them access the support and develop the skills they need to overcome poverty and homelessness. Despite the challenging times within the sector, and society in general, the Cardinal Hume Centre is thriving and committed to investing for the future in order to respond to need even more effectively.

This is an excellent opportunity for an exceptional leader who is driven by values and commitment to serving society’s most vulnerable people. You will have experience in a senior position, ideally at CEO level, alongside the ability to translate Catholic Social Teaching into practical and effective action.

The successful candidate will be at the heart of drawing up and implementing our organisational strategy, working with the Trustees and the senior management team in delivering the overall objectives within our business plan.

If you have substantial leadership experience and can demonstrate an impressive track record of managing a successful and happy team, of developing strong external links with a wide range of stakeholders from donors to public figures,  of ensuring the voice of the people the Centre supports is heard, then we would definitely like to hear from you.

To succeed in this role you will clearly identify with our founding ethos, our vision and our values and have a deep understanding of the Catholic world. You will be an inspiring, facilitative and supportive leader who can motivate your team, colleagues, supporters and stakeholders. Your interpersonal and communication skills will be exceptional.

If you are determined to make a difference, please come and join us!
