Are you an inspirational, collaborative, values-led individual who can deliver effective, enabling operational leadership across Forum?

Forum has recently been through a period of rapid development transitioning its business model and funding sources towards a more balanced hybrid model incorporating both philanthropic and corporate support. We are also continuing our journey to a more international organisation from a historic UK-focus.

Having pioneered the application of the concept of system change for sustainability, Forum is now embarking on a strategic review designed to allow it to fully realise ambitious plans for even greater impact, including how we apply these principles and practices to the organisation itself.

We are looking for someone who will thrive in and contribute to Forum through their shared belief in our purpose and values and, will bring their expertise, experiences, skills and commitment to delivering effective operational leadership including business planning, finance, people, governance, legal and technology across Forum in support of the organisational strategy. This includes taking account of the differing contexts in each of our geographies bringing them together in a cohesive whole.
