NSUN is recruiting: Chief Executive Officer

Recruitment for this role has now closed.

Role: Chief Executive Officer
Details: Remote, full time
Salary: £61,500 per annum


NSUN is an England-wide network of people and groups with lived experience of mental ill-health, distress and trauma. We know that peoples’ lives are complex, mental health is complex and the landscapes that we work in are complex. The work that we do to shift power and resource within mental health embraces this complexity. We are led and fully staffed by people with lived experience of mental ill-health or long-term mental distress. We are a truly user-led national mental health charity, the only one of its kind, and we are needed now more than ever.

The role

Having grown from c£230k to £850k income and from two staff to eleven over the last 3 years we are looking to consolidate and continue our growth and impact in our next chapter. The key challenges for our next CEO will be to provide encouragement, support and strong leadership to the staff team so that they can continue to do the incredible work that they do. You will continue to have strong relationships with our funders, partners and key stakeholders within the mental health arena and beyond. While we are in a strong financial position currently, there will also be the need to look ahead and secure funding for the future.

The person

You might be an existing CEO, or this might be your first CEO role. In any event you will have lived experience and bring demonstrable leadership and management, relationship building, in addition to the strategic and operational experience required to carry out the scope of this role. Ultimately this role would be the perfect fit for someone who shares the values of the work, and who has drive and ambition for the future of the charity.
