Do you have a passion for working with young people to reach their potential, and relish the opportunity to lead an organisation?

We are a charity established in 1992, with a turnover of circa £800,000, which provides opportunities for young people to develop their skills and talents in preparation for their working lives.

Our Board of Trustees are passionate about seeing young people thrive and engaging the support and commitment of the business community as key partners.

We are looking to appoint a leader who can grow our business, who can see the potential for new services which fit with our objectives and the current needs of young people and employers.  We need a creative thinker, change maker who can bring fresh ideas in this competitive market space.  The charity operating model is to derive philanthropic donations from local businesses who benefit from our services (<10% per annum) with the remaining funds coming from our fee-paying services.  It is essential that these services can be provided in an efficient, effective and safe manner, therefore an understanding of commercial business operations, financial planning and strategic thinking is required for the successful leadership of LEBC.

We need someone with leadership experience, who has previously won work contracts who can influence and inspire confidence in commissioners and partner organisations at national and local level, and our schools, colleges and employers, our valued customers.  Knowledge on Government policy on careers education and inclusion of young people is desirable.  You must have excellent interpersonal skills, be able to command the respect of peers and lead and empower our team of highly skilled staff who deliver excellent customer service and value in their fields of expertise.
