About the charity

It is an exciting time to be joining Age UK Mid-Mersey, to continue to build on the high-quality information, support and care they already provide. The charity is financially stable with healthy reserves, having been transformed over the last 3 years under the leadership of the outgoing Chief Executive and a committed team.

The organisation has re-focused and simplified. The charity now has a laser sharp focus on core activities with remodelled services, adopting a core Wellbeing offer – Living Well – using a holistic person-centred approach. They provide a range of wrap-around health, wellbeing, care and support to enable more independence, informed choice and greater confidence for clients.

About the role

This is the perfect time for a visionary CEO to bring fresh ideas and perspective, leading the organisation to develop and deliver on its strategic plan. Making the most of strong foundations put in place since the pandemic, you’ll continue to grow and innovate services, looking for new funding opportunities to increase the organisation’s impact across the region.

You’ll be encouraged to develop and shape the existing strategy by a supportive and collaborative Trustee Board, who are excited by potential to help more people over 50 across Mid-Mersey. Always with staff wellbeing and engagement at the fore, you’ll continue to build on the Living Well platform and strengthen relationships with existing and new partners, heading towards a sustainable future.

About you

You’ll come with a proven track-record of leading successful, happy teams to deliver high-quality services. Setting and communicating a clear direction for the charity’s future, you’ll work collaboratively and cohesively with the board, staff and volunteers to enable the charity to reach and empower more of Age Mid-Mersey’s over 50s.

We’ll be looking for you to demonstrate the following:

  • Leadership through a listening and learning culture.
  • Strategic thinking, cross-functionally and cross-organisationally.
  • Commercial mindset, understanding how to generate income.
  • Financial literacy, with a handle on good governance.
  • Ability to develop and deliver new, collaborative programmes and solutions.
  • Exceptional communication and influencing skills, confident networking with partners and funders.
  • Motivates and inspires teams, committed to staff wellbeing and development.

If you have the skills and experience to lead with passion and innovate with purpose, then we’d love to hear from you and together improve the lives of over 50s across Mid-Mersey.
