Harris Hill is delighted to be working with Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) to recruit an Interim Chief Executive.

At Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA), our horses benefit the lives of over 25,000 disabled children and adults. With fun activities like riding and carriage driving, we provide therapy, fitness, skills development and opportunities for achievement all supported by 18,000 amazing volunteers and qualified coaches at nearly 500 RDA centres all over the UK.

RDA is an inclusive and diverse organisation. We welcome clients with physical and learning disabilities and autism, and there are no age restrictions. Through our network of member groups, RDA is at work in every corner of the UK, in our cities and remote rural areas, bringing the therapy, achievement and fun of horses to as many people as we can.

We are a charity, and we can only carry out our life-changing activities thanks to the generosity of our donors, the dedication of our volunteers and the good nature of our fantastic horses.

Key details:
Job title: Interim Chief Executive
Location: Lowlands Equestrian Centre, Old Warwick Road, Shrewley
Salary: FTE £90,000
Hours: 2/3 days per week moving to full time hours

RDA wish to make an appointment of an Interim CEO at the earliest opportunity to work part time alongside the outgoing CEO and who will then take over as full time CEO until the new permanent CEO is in place.

The jobholder will be an experienced leader with a broadly-based general management skillset, derived from a successful commercial or not-for-profit career. This will include a strong people management skillset, experience of managing and growing significant businesses and budgets, and an adequate grasp of the governance appropriate to a national charity.

We encourage applicants who are from underrepresented groups with protected characteristics, as we value having a diverse pool of applicants to find the best candidate.
