Chief Executive Officer

Chance UK
Finsbury Park, London

Chance UK is an award-winning early intervention children’s charity founded in 1995. Our vision is for every child in the UK to feel happy about themselves, realise their potential, and be confident in their ability to build a brighter future. The Charity provides a range of solutions focused support for children aged 5-13 and their parents and carers. We pride ourselves on developing evidence-based services, which put children at the heart of our work, and our services are designed to build social and emotional skills and resilience.


Having undergone a period of transformation including having a new operating model in place, now is an exciting time to join as our new chief executive as we seek to grow the charity’s reach and impact even further. We are looking for an empathetic, passionate and ambitious leader with experience of leading through change and growth to help us achieve our mission to help more children across the UK.

You will bring a track record in securing diverse income streams and will be able to build on your already strong relationships with funders and partners as well as spot and develop opportunities for growth. We’re looking for a strategic thinker with operational leadership experience who is confident in leading and empowering a highly dedicated team of staff and mentors and is able to credibly represent Chance UK externally and help raise our profile further. 

You must understand and be able to demonstrate a commitment to the value of early intervention and the benefit of Chance UK in delivering excellent outcomes for children. Chance UK value and respect the diversity of all and welcome applications from candidates from under-represented communities. 

If you have the ambition and experience we need to help lead us through the next phase of our development, I’d love to hear from you.
