Deputy Chief Executive (Planning and Operations)

Versus Arthritis
Flexible. Regular presence in all offices including London and Chesterfield.

Too many people accept the daily pain, fatigue and isolation that arthritis causes. Too many dismiss it as ‘just a bit of arthritis’. But we don’t accept it. Alongside volunteers, healthcare professionals, researchers and friends, we do everything we can to push back against arthritis. From challenging and influencing Government to get the big decisions right, to working with people with arthritis and our supporters we are making real headway. But there’s still a long way to go, and we won’t stop until no-one has to tolerate living with the pain, fatigue and isolation of arthritis.


The Director of Planning and Operations (Deputy CEO) will ensure that the charity moves from a period of transformation to a new phase characterised by focus and delivery against our purpose and strategic ambitions. The new Director will establish and embed a coherent and integrated framework for planning and delivering strategic priorities and ensure that all charity resources are effectively utilised.
