FtSE Member News: Community Foster Care are looking for a talented and entrepreneurial Chief Executive
Community Foster Care is a not-for-profit foster care agency which provides foster care placements for local children in Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Swindon, West Cumbria and Lancashire. Our ambition is to be the best provider of fostering services in the UK, where children flourish and have the greatest opportunities to achieve their personal ambitions.
Community Family Care, our sister organisation, provides community based family support services to the local community in Gloucestershire, including training, support and guidance to families.
Enabling children and families to stay together is central to our mission, and our work is focused on supporting people to make the changes necessary to improve the lives of children.
We have ambitious targets to continue our pioneering work with children and families against a changing landscape. To spearhead initiatives that will drive our sustainable growth, we are now looking for a talented and entrepreneurial Chief Executive who will work across both organisations.
Someone who shares our vision and values and who will work with the Board and our committed team to make a difference to even more children's lives and to the communities where they live.
This pivotal role requires proven strategic leadership with an exceptional ability to engage and work with stakeholders including children, foster carers and service providers across health, education, the third sector and Local Authorities. You will believe passionately in supporting young people and all of those who care for them to create the conditions for children to thrive. We have our roots in social enterprise and this is central to our growth strategy. You will bring business acumen; be committed to ensuring financial sustainability and growth for both Community Foster Care and Community Family Care and you will have a deep understanding of the complex nature of commissioning and service provision.
