Greets Green Community Enterprises seeks new Chief Executive Officer

Greets Green Community Enterprises (GGCE), is an independent charity and company limited by guarantee, dedicated to supporting and serving the diverse communities in and around the Greets Green neighbourhood of West Bromwich.

GGCE owns and manages the Wood Lane Community Centre, which provides the community-facing work of the charity, a nursery and a base for volunteers, along with two small industrial estates that provide both employment opportunities for local people, and the income the charity needs to sustain the community centre and the services delivered from it.

Due to the forthcoming retirement of the current CEO, GGCE is looking for a new chief Officer with strong business acumen, sound project management experience and a flair for identifying and successfully applying for grants. The successful individual will have the skills, energy and vision to take the organisation forward to the next exciting phase of its evolution.

Salary: up to £35,000 (depending upon experience and qualifications)
Hours: 40 hours per week
Term: Permanent
Location: West Bromwich

Led by an independent, supportive and dedicated Board of Trustee Directors and being a financially independent organisation, GGCE has the freedom and flexibility to decide how to respond to local needs and to determine its own strategies accordingly.

This is an excellent time to join GGCE. The organisation has a solid foundation in place on which to grow from and the role will provide the right candidate with genuine opportunity to shape the future direction of the organisation – generating new ideas and approaches for continued growth, impact and success.
