Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust

Job Title: Group Chief Executive

Job Reference:XAGAAA

Closing Date: Monday 19 Aug 2019

Location: York

Salary: competitive

Closing Date: 19th of August 2019.

We can solve poverty in the UK.
At Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) and Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust (JRHT) we believe that poverty remains the UK’s most pressing social issue, but that together we can solve this.

In partnership with others we find effective policy solutions, and through our social housing and care services we support vibrant communities in Yorkshire and Hartlepool. In our two organisations, with shared values, an ambitious people strategy and the strategic use of our endowment we know we can achieve significant, practical outcomes across the UK.

As our Chief Executive steps down after a successful period of refocus and restructuring, we are looking to appoint our first Group CEO. We need someone who is keen to embrace the transformational change underway and build on our successes; a strategic thinker with exceptional leadership, managerial and ambassadorial skills, who can credibly lead our values-driven and motivated workforce. We are seeking a passionate advocate for social justice, with the ability to build strong relationships with multiple stakeholders – from our social housing residents right through to the highest levels of government – to effectively influence policy while ensuring excellent delivery of our services.

This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to lead an organisation challenging and supporting policy change across the UK and delivering real change in our local communities. If you share our commitment to ending poverty and can demonstrate senior leadership experience in organisation of similar size and complexity we would be delighted to hear from you.

JRF and JRHT strongly believe in the value of diversity as a foundation for effective organisations and communities. As such we actively encourage applications from a broad and deep range of backgrounds and experiences.
