After six years in post this coming May, our CEO Robin Burgess is stepping down from charity leadership after a very long career that started in the charity sector in 1981.

We are now actively recruiting his successor and we welcome applicants with the skills and experience to run a demanding, complex but rewarding charity with a long history and brilliant reputation.

The JD will be listed on this site on the jobs page, the Guardian, Linked in and other places and you can apply via emailing  with a CV and two page letter setting out why the job is of interest.

You can speak with the chairman and with Robin to discuss the role if you email us and give us your details
