  • Lead and motivate all staff, line manage the senior management team
  • Manage risk and work with the board to ensure the charity complies with regulation
  • Maximise the charity’s financial long-term sustainability and secure project funding
  • Be the voice of our beneficiaries within statutory and academic networks across the UK
  • Ensure the charity’s values and culture underpin everything EOS does

The successful candidate must have sound leadership experience in the voluntary sector, knowledge of relevant legislation and excellent financial management skills, including securing large grants for projects. You will be a confident and passionate communicator, with an ability to create positive relationships with a wide range of stakeholders.
