Building a Better Groundwork: Transformation Lead

Contract: Fixed term up to two years

Location: Birmingham (with UK-wide travel) 

Groundwork’s charitable mission of changing places and changing lives has never been more important.  More people in more places are in need of practical support to improve their prospects and their quality of life. 

We are building on a 35-year track record of success – working locally and nationally to transform lives in local communities - but know we can’t stand still.  In order to ensure that more people in more places have access to the skills and support we can provide we need to change the way we work.

We have agreed the framework of a transformation plan aimed at improving our resilience and our ability to diversify our income base.  We are now seeking a dynamic individual to push our programme to a conclusion.

You will have confidence and credibility but will be committed to a consensual approach to change that our federal structure demands.  You will have a strategic approach but also the knowledge, networks and experience to help deliver the detail.
