We now need a leader who can build on our strong foundations and lead CLES through its next stage of development. You will have the opportunity to work with our hugely committed and talented Board of Trustees. Our Board members include some of the most progressive, innovative and skilled political leaders and Chief Executives in the UK and colleagues working at the front line of financial inclusion and community development. What binds us all together is our belief in CLES, our belief in our mission and our commitment not just to thinking but also to doing – making a difference in communities and places.
We are looking for someone that shares our values and beliefs and wants to become a part of our CLES family. Someone who understands completely why our model and practice is so necessary and needed. It is essential to us that you can communicate, persuade and amplify our voice. That you can both “think” and “do” and are able to move between the academic policy world and project and consultancy work. That you are a collaborator and can build alliances and partnerships. And importantly, that you can lead our group of amazing and dedicated staff with warmth and attention – so they are able to achieve their potential and deliver their best for CLES and the clients that work with us.
