Are you looking for a Chief Executive role where every day is different, and you can have a direct impact on improving the lives of young people?
The dimensions of the role of a Youth Zone Chief Executive defy definition in conventional terms. It is strategic and requires effectiveness at a high level, yet at the same time demands very detailed and hands-on management. The Chief Executive of The Hive, Wirral Youth Zone will have responsibility for a revenue budget of £1.25m per annum. A willingness to get stuck into the detail is as important as the ability to influence effectively at the most senior levels.
The Chief Executive’s relationship with the Chair is collaborative and based on two-way high support / high challenge, enabling the delivery of ongoing success for the Youth Zone.
Key duties include:
As an exceptional leader, motivated to improve young people’s lives for the better, you will have the ability to think strategically and develop a long-term vision for the young people of Wirral, bringing with you a successful track record of developing organisations or large teams, the experience of generating significant income and time spent in the voluntary sector and/or working with young people. Your communications and people management skills will be strong, together with an ability to build inclusive relationships and display excellent judgement and focus at all times.
