Chief Executive Officer

Aurora Nexus
Deptford, London
Circa £95,000

Based in the heart of Deptford, we provide high quality services that empower people with learning disabilities and autism to maximise their independence. We currently operate across four London boroughs and are set to grow further. Formed after a merger in 2021 our mission to deliver services that support people with learning disabilities or autism to lead fulfilling lives, be effectively engaged in the local community, feel safe and involved, remains at the heart of everything we do.


This is a very challenging time for the sector but an exciting time for us as the merger has created a platform to build a three-year strategy that will enable us to broaden, both geographically and in terms of the offering to those we support. We are therefore looking for an experienced strategic leader who brings experience of leading an organisation through change and growth or transformation. A strong people person, you must be able to demonstrate a deep understanding of the people, communities and families we support. We are looking for an experienced organisational leader who possesses strong financial acumen and who brings significant experience of generating income from a wide range of sources which can include from tenders, health commissioners and local authorities.

Our ideal candidate may not come from the care sector; however, you must demonstrate empathy for and understanding of the needs of the people we support and have the ability and experience to deliver on our vision.

We want to better reflect the communities we serve, and equality, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of Aurora Nexus, for the people we support, our staff and from a culture perspective and we actively welcome applications from underserved communities.

This is an exciting time to join Aurora Nexus. If you are driven and highly committed to supporting people and empathetic to our communities’ needs, we’d love to hear from you.
