Salary: up to £75k+ benefits
Mayday is a forward-thinking organisation that is challenging the systems available to people going through some of the toughest life transitions, including people experiencing homelessness, leaving care, coming out of prison, or experiencing emotional distress.
As an organisation, we have recently transformed from being a conventional service provider in the Social Care sector to being a pioneer in systems change, and we are looking for an exceptional CEO with passion for the cause and the ability to deliver.
Mayday’s transformation did not happen overnight; it required years of listening to people who worked with us, a total change to the mission and vision, prototyping a new response, and much reflection. The learning from this period led to the publication of Wisdom from the Street, the development of The Person-led, Transitional and Strength-based (PTS) Response and the creation of the PTS Partnership and the New System Alliance.
At this exciting and challenging time, Mayday is committed to finding a Chief Executive Officer with a real passion for the work that we do, who shares our vision, and has the leadership ability to ensure our delivery and influencing work succeeds in changing the nature of services for now and in the future. That involves delivering our core programmes and increasing our profile, while consolidating and developing our fundraising.
Consequently, this is a rare opportunity for a passionate leader, to lead and manage a small organisation with big ambitions. You will be both a persuasive communicator and a strong manager, effective inside and outside the organisation.
We are keen to hear from anyone who thinks they could lead Mayday and its mission – your background matters less than your commitment and track record of delivery.
If you would like a confidential discussion with our Chair of Trustees about your potential candidacy, please email our Chair, Julie McEver at email@example.com
Closing date for applications: August 16th
