- Together Apart
- Next Gen
Our current CEO, Duncan Berry, who has been with us for almost 15 years, has recently been promoted to a senior position with YMCA England and Wales, based in London, which is the reason for this vacancy. During his tenure, the charity has seen significant growth, from a £1m organisation to £4.5m currently; this has included the merger of Redditch and Worcester YMCA in 2013 to form Worcestershire YMCA.
We are seeking an exceptional Christian who is motivated, driven and excited by the opportunity to lead the development, implementation, and growth of existing and new projects so that we can continue to support young people across the county, through our range of services and programmes.
Working in collaboration with our Board of Trustees, our incoming CEO will take the lead on the strategic direction of the charity, offering support and guidance to the Board. They will oversee every area of activity and with the Senior Leadership Team, will manage the operational delivery
of our services. As YMCA Worcestershire’s ambassador externally, developing strong, sustainable partnerships both locally, regionally, and nationally, our CEO will need to demonstrate a strong track record of working effectively with partners and stakeholders and on public platforms.
YMCA’s vision across England and Wales is of an inclusive Christian movement transforming communities so that all young people can belong, contribute, and thrive. It is therefore critical that our new CEO can demonstrate how their Christian faith underpins their vision and experience and skills in leadership, day-to-day management, communication, finance, charity law and housing, as well as communicating the Christian faith-based motivation of the YMCA movement externally.
If you feel passionate about enabling young people to reach their fulfil their potential, offer significant leadership experience, demonstrate entrepreneurial spirit and are inspired by faith-based community transformation, then we would be delighted to receive your application.
