The ideal candidate will possess sound strategic vision, a strong track record in delivering strategic objectives to budget, and experience in leading teams through change and transformation, together with a proven track record in income generation.

The Chief Executive must have at least five years of established senior management experience in the development, implementation, delivery, and monitoring of strategic priorities and demonstrate a sound understanding of the challenges that the VCSE organisations face.

To be successful in the role, candidates must be strategic and analytical thinkers with financial acumen, able to turn ideas into action while demonstrating empathy with VAL’s values, aims, and objectives. 

Candidates should possess excellent presentation and people skills, with an inclusive and self-assured communication style. Resilience, strength of character, flexibility, and the ability to prioritise complex situations, together with drive and determination, are also essential.
