Organisation: Age UK Hereford & Localities
Job title: Chief Executive Officer
Closing date: 30th June 2021
Salary: £40,000 - £50,000
Are you committed to improving the lives of older people? Looking for a new challenge? A change in direction or a new job?
We are looking for a skilled, dynamic and inspirational CEO to take our ambitious charity forward. Age UK Hereford & Localities has played a crucial role in enriching and enhancing the lives of older people across Herefordshire since 2010, when the charity brought together four independent Age Concerns. With a total population of just over 192,000 people, of whom 29% are aged of 70, now more than ever Herefordshire’s older communities are in need of support.
Last year the charity helped over 1000 people through information and advice, telephone and befriending, shopping and gardening services amongst a range of other areas. The past year has shone a light on the isolation and challenges that many older people face. It is our ambition to capture this awareness and to continue to grow the support that we offer.
The charity was fortunate to enter the pandemic with a sustainable cost base and healthy reserves. We have weathered the past year well and we are now actively looking for our next CEO to lead us into the next exciting phase of our development with a sense of innovation and vision.
Potential candidates will provide inspiring leadership to a small and committed team of staff and volunteers, engage in profile and partnership building on behalf of the charity with a wide range of stakeholders, actively lead fundraising efforts, and provide day-to-day operational management expertise across the organisation. Candidates might have experience of either the third sector or health and care, however we will consider applications from a wide range of career backgrounds.
With a strong Board of Trustees, as well as a sense of renewal across the charity, it is a period of positive change for our organisation and with this comes a real opportunity to shape our strategy and achieve our vision. You will be part of the Age UK national network working closely with other Age UKs in the country. If you are passionate about transforming the lives of many older people across Herefordshire for the better then we would love to hear from you.

Centre Manager - £ and hours negotiable.
Start 1st September 2021
Saxon Hall community centre is located in the Putson district south of Hereford. Run as a not for profit business, it relies on revenue from the hire of its 2 modern halls and meeting room to offset operating costs. Special projects and further development are grant-funded.
In normal times it offers a range of educational, recreational, cultural and social activities to the local community. Today it is COVID compliant and operating at reduced capacity as a result.
Key aspects of the job are:
day to day management of the facilities
room hire booking and customer liaison
promoting the venue via social media
running the maintenance programme
ensuring safety and security
Reporting to the Board of Trustees, the Centre Manager enjoys a high degree of delegated authority and trust.
Your application must be lodged by 1st August 2021.
Application forms can be obtained by emailing Daniel Ovel at email@example.com

We are seeking a person who understands and is motivated by the benefits that a diverse volunteer team can bring to an organisation.
ECHO is a charity working mainly with people with moderate or severe learning disabilities. We also support people with mental health needs or who have physical or sensory impairments. ECHO runs 25 different activities each week in community settings across Herefordshire.
We currently have over 80 active volunteers. However, an increasing number of people who approach us to become volunteers have their own support needs. Thanks to a grant from the Community Fund we are now able to appoint an additional worker to enable us to support a greater diversity of potential volunteers, whether they be our own participants with learning disabilities, people with mental health conditions or those seeking to return to the jobs market. There is 2 years until the end of the grant.
This is a part time appointment of 33 hours/week, although a job share will be considered (please state this in the application). Due to the nature of the role some flexible working is required including both evenings and occasional weekends. The post holder will be based at our Leominster office, but will be required to visit all our projects in Hereford and Leominster. Access to independent means of transport is therefore an essential requirement of this post.
£24,012, Pro Rata (£21,130)
Closing date: 14/07/21

40 West Street, Leominster HR6 8ES
