We are currently working with an historic organisation on the recruitment of their Head of Strategy.

They are entering strategic reviews and are committed to making changes. The Director Group and Board of Trustees are strongly supportive and there is a real will for change within the organisation.

This is a very complex organisation, while others may get their income through fundraising, they rely on their commercial operations while keeping a focus on their charitable mission meaning you have two very different group of stakeholders within the Director group (Commercial vs Mission).

The Head of Strategy is a brand new role and you will need a high level of seniority and strong negotiation skills to navigate both internal stakeholder groups. You will be tough but very diplomatic and implement a collaborative way of working to successfully enforce change.

As the key person leading and driving the strategy through, you will support, lead and coordinate alongside the CEO and the Director group throughout the project.

In terms of experience, you will have worked as a Head of level already and have expertise working in a complex organisation.

You will have led a strategic change and driven forward detailed implementation. The stakeholders are an important part of this role and you will need experience in managing complex and diverse internal and external stakeholders, ideally within a scientific organisation.

You will also have strong experience of implementing change, reviewing operating models, developing and implementing improvements and of course a track record of communicating change effectively to embed strategic planning.

The deadline for this role is February 8th at 17.00
