Across the working and retired civil service community our mission is to help people overcome life’s challenges and thrive. The Charity offers lifelong practical, financial and emotional support, advice and guidance for people wherever we can. Last year people came to us for help over 70,000 times and we spent £6.7m (c.£2m in financial grants alone) supporting people in need of our help. Everything we do as an organisation underpins the Charity’s vision of a supportive community in which everyone has the chance to live their life to the full.

After 9 years in the role, our CEO is retiring and the Charity is looking for its next leader. To continue the great work of the last few years, the Charity is looking for an inspiring new CEO to guide the organisation through a significant period of change and development.

We are seeking a commercially astute values-led senior leader with a wealth of experience operating at Board level, managing and navigating the complex strategic, financial, and governance issues that come with leading the business, in any CEO role. You will demonstrate the intellectual depth, gravitas, and conviction to engage top-level civil servants with the credibility and powers of persuasion needed to win their support and significantly increase income.

The Charity is looking for someone who is as comfortable leading, managing and communicating with people, as they are with developing strategic propositions and writing business plans. So the successful candidate will be a positive and outward-looking leader who naturally inspires confidence, motivates others and who enjoys working as part of a team.
