St. Paul’s Trust

Seeking New Chief Executive.

Salary: £60k + annual bonus (subject to conditions)

Hours: Full time (37.5 hours per week)

Location: Balsall Health Birmingham


St. Paul’s Community Development Trust is a charity in Balsall Heath, Birmingham that has been established for very nearly half a century, working with and for the local community and wider City.

Regulated by Ofsted, we have two services rated outstanding and two services rated good. There is a nursery, early years provision, a secondary school for pupils with behavioural and social needs and an after-school club. This demonstrates the quality and depth of the work we do in one of the most deprived neighbourhoods in the country.

In addition, our wonderful City Farm provides a host of well-being activities as well as visits from local families, schools, nurseries and other groups.

We are seeking a CEO who can lead the Charity, support the Board of Trustees in setting the strategic direction, inspire the 90 dedicated professionals, and be a role model to the children, young people and families we work with.

Given the challenging economic environment in which all Charities operate, you must be resilient, hard-working, authentic and emotionally intelligent. This might be your first CEO role or it might be a role you consider as you review your career goals and aspirations.

Whatever your reason for applying we look forward to talking with you.

We have agreed to the following timetable for our mission to find the right person.

Closing date for applications 30th September 2022
Stage One of recruitment 12th October 2022
Stage Two of recruitment 19th October 2022
