Chief Executive

Salary: Competitive

We are a Luton-based charity working across Bedfordshire, with over 30 years’ experience of supporting those in the community who are among the most disadvantaged, are facing a severe crisis and have nowhere else to turn. We provide a practical, empowering, caring and, at times, life-saving service to rough sleepers, those who are marginalised and socially excluded, or people who have fallen into extreme poverty. NOAH is passionately committed to finding better and more effective ways of addressing need.

This is an excellent opportunity for an exceptional leader who is driven by values and commitment to serve those among society’s most vulnerable people. You will have experience in a senior position together with the ability to translate Catholic Social Teaching into practical and effective action.

The successful candidate will be at the heart of drawing up and implementing our strategy, working with the trustees and the senior management team in delivering the objectives within a business plan.

If you believe in the fundamental dignity and worth of every individual and have a resolve to work with those who are among the most in need to improve their life quality and opportunities, have had significant leadership experience, can demonstrate a record of successful management and be an advocate for the people NOAH supports, then we would definitely like to hear from you.

To succeed in this role you will clearly identify with our founding ethos, our vision and our values and have an understanding of the Catholic world. You will be a facilitative and supportive leader who can inspire your team, colleagues, supporters and stakeholders. Your interpersonal and communication skills will be exceptional.

If you are that person, you can make a difference!
