Chief Executive

Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity seeks a Chief Executive to lead the development of our growing children's charity

The children and families helped by Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity face an unknown future living with a serious illness. The charity is small, with big aspirations. Having secured the patronage of HRH The Duchess of Cornwall and reorganised the fundraising and communications team, it is looking to grow and develop substantially in the next five years. 

For more than twenty-five years, we have funded over seventy Roald Dahl Nurses across the UK. These specialist nurses are a lifeline for children and their families and play a critical role, working directly with families and other medical professionals to deliver expert care. 

The charity is at an exciting stage of its development and as our nursing community grows, so has the demand for specialist children's nurses. In the future, we intend to focus on specific conditions for 1-2 years, raising the national profile of the area of focus. 

We are seeking an ambitious Chief Executive who will inspire and lead a motivated and skilled team into that future. We want a leader with energy and vision, who will communicate the work of the charity to a wide audience and can engage with high-profile supporters and beneficiaries.

The successful applicant will be a good manager of people and a motivator, and will have a good working knowledge of the charity and healthcare sector. A commercial and business background and experience of fundraising and PR is also desirable. Ambition, motivation, communication and solid management skills are also required.
