CommUNITY Barnet Seeking an Interim CEO
Hours: 4 days per week
Salary: £45,000 - £50,000 pro-ratad annual salary equivalent
Contract: Immediate start to 31 December 2012 / short-term freelance contract
We are seeking an interim CEO who will guide the organisation through a significant period of change. The local authority, our primary funder, is transforming into a “commissioning council” with the majority of services being delivered by external contractors. The council is also moving away from a model of funding free development support for local groups towards a focus on promoting social innovation, engaged citizenship, self-help and social enterprise.
CommUNITY Barnet is preparing for this by building capability in key growth areas such as engagement and consultation; increasing its income mix with a focus on CSR/corporate fundraising and traded income; and upgrading technology to drive down operational costs. As part of this, the organisation is set to move premises during the summer
The current climate and local changes are also posing significant challenges for the working relationship between the local authority/strategic partnership and the local sector, and our role as advocate is growing in complexity and importance.

To apply please send your CV, with details of two referees and a covering letter of no more than 2 A4 pages FAO Geoff Salmon, Chair, to email@example.com by 12noon on 25 May 2012.
An informal breakfast meeting with shortlisted candidates will take place in the morning of 31 May or 6 June. These will be followed by interviews on 7 June and 8 June with the intention to make the appointment in time for a start on 15 June.
