Young Devon – Chief Executive Officer

Location: Devon

Salary: £60,000 - £65,000

Young Devon is a charity that operates to make Devon a better place for all young people by reducing disadvantage, improving opportunities and to change the odds in favour of young people.

Young Devon has been tackling disadvantage and improving opportunities for young people across Devon since 1949. Over the past 65 years Young Devon has evolved a mix of interrelated services that look to make a lasting difference in the lives of young people. It achieves this by making contact and building trusting relationships to help young people overcome the challenges in their lives.

The young people that Young Devon comes into contact with have often reached a point in their lives where they have little or no belief in themselves or other people. Believing in all young people"s potential to achieve is fundamental to Young Devon"s work and finding innovative ways of conveying that message of hope is practised by staff daily.

Young Devon is looking for an inspirational and influential leader who will be able to build upon progress and direction in recent years, and continue to build Young Devon"s reputation, young-person centred approach, and high-quality services.

The new Chief Executive will be expected to lead the charity through its next stage of development with vision and commitment, championing our work, thinking creatively about ways to diversify our income streams and secure funding in an increasingly challenging environment.

The successful candidate will have:

• Experience of strategic leadership of an organisation of comparable scale and complexity
• A track record of successful setting and implementation of wide-reaching strategic plans
• Demonstrable success in relationship management of diverse stakeholder groups
