Director of Organisational Development and Resources

Wilf Ward Family Trust
Hybrid working
Circa £84,000 per annum

During its long history, The Wilf Ward Family Trust has developed strong expertise in supporting individuals with profound and multiple learning disabilities to play an active part in our organisation, their community, to become citizens with a life of meaning and purpose. We strive to provide safe and homely environments that focus on delivering personalised support, and our vision is that the individuals we support are enabled to lead extraordinary lives through outstanding support.

The Role

We are looking for a strategic leader with track record in organisational development to join our leadership team as Director of Organisational Development and Resources. This new role encompasses a wide brief covering HR, Finance, IT and Estates. We are looking to you to provide visionary leadership across the Trust to embed a culture of continuous improvement, and one which places the individuals we support at the heart of everything we do.

Working closely with the Chief Executive, the wider leadership team and the Board of Trustees, you will ensure the operations of the charity are fully aligned and that we have a clear financial strategy that maximises the impact of our reserves and ensures our future sustainability.

This role requires an ambitious and aspirational leader with deep integrity and a strong sense of purpose. You will be strategic and thoughtful with a clear vision and a collegiate and collaborative approach. Comfortable with challenge and complexity, you will thrive in organisations which continually push for improvement.

You do not need to be proven at this level already as long as you can demonstrate that you share our values and bring the leadership qualities and skills to enable our organisation and the people who live and work here to flourish.
