£50,314 pro rata
18.5 hours per week, working pattern to be agreed
The closing date for applications is 12 December 2016.
Interviews will take place on 10 January 2017.

Grassroots was formed as a Community Interest Company 10 years ago. We became a charity in 2012. We have one simple yet powerful goal: that no one should have to contemplate suicide alone. We work locally and nationally with communities, organisations and individuals, helping them to support others at risk of suicide. Our training and consultancy helps save lives by enabling conversations that make a real difference.

The Trustees of Grassroots are seeking a leader with the drive, insights and experience to help our small charity to continue to grow and flourish. We are already in a strong position; we have robust contracts, a healthy balance sheet, and an excellent reputation for training and consultancy. And we have a highly effective and committed internal staff team and an exceptional group of trainers. We are now looking ahead to prepare ourselves for opportunities we create ourselves and which arise unexpectedly.

The person we are looking for to lead the charity will have proven leadership experience as chief officer of a small charity or as a director in a larger organisation. They will combine integrity, vision and business acumen with the ability to develop and maintain strategic relationships as well as lead and motivate staff and trainers. They will be highly personable, respectful of diversity, strong on good governance, able to work effectively with a Board of Trustees, and demonstrate exceptional presentation skills and a clear commitment to the aims of Grassroots.
