Are you a strategic, passionate CEO ready to lead an Oxfordshire based charity in its mission to provide support and services to vulnerable adults in Oxfordshire? If so, they want to hear from you!

The charity is in search of a dedicated and empathetic individual to join as their Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Job title: CEO

Hours: 35 hours a week

Contract: Permanent

Responsible to: Chair of Board of Trustees

Salary: £50k to £60k (dependent on experience)

Location: Oxford OX2 6HT, hybrid working model, site based, with remote options

Benefits: 5% pension, 29 days annual leave, including the summer closure of Gatehouse in August (approximately 2 weeks).

About the charity:

It is a volunteer and donation-led registered charity supported by the whole Oxfordshire community, including churches and congregations of other faiths in Oxford. The charity’s drop-in centre offers free support services for adults aged 25+ who are homeless, vulnerably housed, on low income, and/or looking for company and community. The charity offers a free café (six evenings a week), therapeutic workshops, and a bespoke one-to-one support service (over two evenings and one afternoon a week). The project also delivers an outreach service, an independent counselling service, and supports the Lived Experience Advisory Forum (LEAF). The charity is experiencing rapid growth and is eager to expand its leadership team to support its exciting plans.

About the Role:

As the CEO, you will spearhead the charity’s mission and vision alongside the Board, ensuring stakeholders receive the best services.

You will be a visionary lead, driving organisational success through supporting your dedicated team of staff and volunteers, managing budgets, and overseeing fundraising efforts, while championing the charity’s mission to serve vulnerable adults in Oxfordshire. You’ll embody strong values, excel in interpersonal communication, demonstrate initiative and resilience, and exhibit a deep commitment to the mission.

You’ll forge strong partnerships across various sectors, including donors and policymakers, and act as public ambassador for the charity.

Role Highlights include:

  • Lead strategic vision and organisational growth, with the Board.
  • Oversee resource allocation and financial management.
  • Create, manage, and empower the staff and volunteer teams.
  • Develop sustainable funding models and diverse revenue streams.
  • Engage with donors, foundations, and the private sector.
  • Develop policies, procedures, and service initiatives, including safeguarding.
  • Cultivate external relations, foster community engagement, and represent the charity widely.

About You:

You are a passionate leader with a proven track record of making a difference in the homeless sector or a similar field. Most importantly, you are an empathetic leader who understands the complexities of the charity and the individuals it supports, or a comparable charity.

The charity welcomes candidates with transferable skills, particularly those poised to transition into a CEO role from a leadership position in relevant or similar fields.

If you’re committed to making a meaningful difference in the lives of vulnerable adults and possess the leadership skills to drive strategic vision and organisational growth, we encourage you to apply and join the charity in making a difference in the homelessness community in Oxford.

To apply, please send a copy of your profile or CV in the first instance Priya Vencatasawmy (priya@charitypeople.co.uk) and Ellen Drummond (ellen@charitypeople.co.uk) at Charity People.

Deadline: 9am, 17th May
First stage interview: Thursday 30th & Friday 31st May
Second stage interview: Thursday 6th June
