We are seeking an exceptional Chief Executive who, not only shares our values and ethos, but who also has the insight and expertise to develop and evolve the organisation on the next stage of its journey.

You will provide overarching leadership, promoting and pursuing growth opportunities, supporting and motivating Directors, whilst fostering an inclusive culture that actively engages with our customers and staff alike.

You’ll be an inspirational leader, who can bring a wealth of senior management experience to the role, to provide dynamic, strategic direction and deliver our vision at this exciting time.
