Hours: Part or full-time (30-37.5 hours/week)

About the Role

This is an exciting time for a dynamic CEO to lead the Chilterns MS Centre into its next chapter. This period of growth and expansion into new services will need the CEO to confidently navigate the Charity into new areas, exercise a broad range of management and leadership skills and crucially to guide and balance growth in income and investment in additional resources.

The Chilterns MS Centre, based near Wendover in Buckinghamshire, is a well established and progressive charity devoted to supporting people affected by Multiple Sclerosis for the past 37 years. The organisation is moving into a new phase, extending support and therapies to a far wider range of neurological conditions including Parkinson’s Disease and Stroke. Utilising the facilities and staff expertise to a wider reach of beneficiaries is a key foundation of the Centre’s strategy to build long term resilience, and boost the positive impact for those affected by the challenges of neurological conditions.

The Centre’s Board of Trustees has governance oversight, and the CEO must manage the interface between the leadership team and the Trustees. A collaborative style coupled with a proactive operational can-do attitude are prerequisites.

Moving into a ‘multi-condition’ organisation, as the Centre’s figurehead, you will be working in co-operation with the leadership team and especially the Head of Fundraising and Head of Integrated Clinical Services promoting the virtues of the Centre to our local and regional communities, businesses and key stakeholders; helping to build long term strategic relationships to secure both operational and income security.
