Chief Executive, plus Trustees – Care Ashore

Chief Executive, plus Trustees Care Ashore
Alfold, Surrey circa £55k + benefits

Care Ashore serves all seafarers, fishermen, and their dependents in need, by providing sheltered housing with support and holiday accommodation on its extensive Springbok Estate in rural Surrey.

The charity also manages a number of commercial activities including property rental, farm rental, camping and caravanning, fishing, clay pigeon shooting, and guest rooms, to generate income to subsidise the cost of services offered to seafarers, and to support capital projects on site.

Care Ashore has faced multiple challenges in recent years, and whilst most of these have been or are being addressed, we now seek a Chief Executive (and some additional trustees) with a high degree of resilience, skill, diplomacy and ingenuity to successfully build on recent advances, and lead the charity to achieve our ambitions.

With a proven track record in senior management and sound business sense, the successful Chief Executive candidate will have exceptional people, communications and leadership skills. Direct experience of the care and housing sector will be important, alongside an understanding of charity sector governance.

We offer a competitive salary for the Chief Executive, reflecting the Trustees’ desire to attract the right candidate to this exceptional and rewarding role at a critical time of change for Care Ashore.
