In January of this year HOPE worldwide UK (HwwUK) said farewell to Wil Horwood who had served as CEO for the past 11 years. We thank him for his valuable contribution in growing the charity into the respected organisation that it is today.
Before recruiting a new person for this role the Board undertook a review of HwwUK’s relationship with the UK Churches of Christ. The findings from this survey have had a significant influence on the skills and attributes of the person we are looking for to fulfil the role of Chief Executive.
We are looking for someone with a deep Christian faith and a passionate heart for the disadvantaged and vulnerable. Someone who will be able to enthuse and inspire both church leaders and Christians to make practical outreach an integral part of their Christian life.
A crucial part of the role will involve strengthening the connection with the church that gave birth to the charity in order to develop more meaningful voluntary opportunities for Christians to serve those in need.
The successful candidate will also have the skill set to oversee the two established and successful programmes of Two Step and ODAAT by working effectively with a supportive board and an experienced team of staff and volunteers. In addition, they will actively develop the support for international programmes and develop new funding streams to support and grow our work in the UK and beyond.
For a fuller job description and details of how to apply please e-mail Jane Whitworth at firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for applications is Friday 7th June.
If you would like an informal discussion about the role or have any questions you are welcome to contact David Kaner: Chair of Board – David.Kaner@hopeworldwide.org.uk or Iain Williams: Vice-Chair of Board: Iain.Williams@hopeworldwide.org.uk.
