WE are recruiting for a:

Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Part of the:
Leadership team

Please share this role:

All We Can/Y Care International is seeking a Chief Executive Officer to lead the charities into the next 5-year strategy.

All We Can is an international development and relief organisation, working to see every person’s potential fulfilled. It was founded by the Methodist Church in the 1930s. Y Care International supports local opportunities for vulnerable young people and their communities across the globe, to change lives for the better. It was founded by Sir Terry Waite in collaboration with the YMCA movement in the 1980s.

From 1 September 2021, All We Can and Y Care International began a formal, strategic partnership – combining efforts to tackle poverty, inequality and injustice in some of the world’s most marginalised communities. We work as one organisational team, presenting as two unique brands, fulfilling two separate, but symbiotic, strategies.

Our ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate deep practical understanding of and commitment to our partnership model in locally led development. They’ll combine a creative vision and inspiration with the ability to translate it into practical steps and lead the team with trust and accountability.

We’re looking for a leader who can work in a participatory way and can create psychologically safe environment for everyone in which the team feels nurtured but is also challenged appropriately, where people can raise their concerns without fear of negative consequences, everyone is open to learning, and people can take appropriate risks provided they’re doing those things for the benefit of our partners and other stakeholders.

They’ll have experience of different aspects of charity work with an emphasis on income generation, finance and tracking performance against KPIs. They’ll need to work collaboratively with trustees, the staff team and key stakeholders in the Methodist Church and the YMCA movement.

As our next CEO, they’ll be joining a team of 22 colleagues based in the UK and 6 Country Representatives based in Ethiopia, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Malawi. What unites us, inspires us and leads us is the work of our partners across the world who are making a difference in their communities. We are guided by values of Love, Collaboration, and Integrity. We work towards embedding a culture that is people-centred, mutually accountable, open, inclusive and caring in everything we do.
