Could you lead us?

The Centre has ambitious plans and so is looking for a Chief Executive Officer to push forward the aims of the Trustees.

The role provides an excellent opportunity for a strong leader who believes in the benefit that the natural world can provide to a wide range of people; while leading on the strategic development of The Ecology Centre, as well as managing the organisation on a day to day basis.

We are looking for a leader who has an understanding of the third sector, along with a strong commercial focus, so as to balance both our charitable and enterprise aims. An interest in the environment would be essential in order to understand the Centre’s work and to identify with what we aim to achieve.

In return, a generous remuneration package is offered to the right person, which includes 35 days holiday per year (of which 2 weeks at Christmas and New Year when the Centre is closed). After two years an extra day’s holiday is given for each additional year worked, up to a maximum of 5 extra days. The government’s auto enrolment pension scheme is in place.
