Job Details

Special Olympics GB is the largest provider of year-round, all ability, sports programme in Great Britain and supports over 10,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities on a continued basis. The programmes have a profound impact and effect on the people who participate as well as their families.

We are part of a global movement that uses sports as a platform to help athletes increase their confidence, build friendships and develop life skills through the interaction and team spirit of their sports training and competition.

There is huge potential in the programmes, and Special Olympics GB is committed to increasing its reach and profile over the next 5 years, with the ultimate aim of ensuring anyone in Great Britain with an intellectual disability has the opportunity to take part in sport and all the benefits this brings

To lead and develop the organisation in order to achieve that goal, we are seeking a dynamic, dedicated, charismatic Chief Executive.

Reporting to the Chairman, you will have the opportunity to play a key role in helping to shape the organisation in its next phase of growth. Success for the organisation will be a sustainable operating platform, greater reach to more people with intellectual disabilities and a higher profile and awareness amongst the general public.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who understands the needs and nature of a small but growing organisation with global potential. You will be comfortable with the many facets of the organisation - the community grounding as well as the international franchising structure.

By necessity, you will be an effective and excellent communicator who can share our passion for the work of the team, volunteers, partners and sponsors and be able to build bridges and relationships to grow the organisation’s income, and ultimately, increase our impact.

We seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, as well as those who reflect the diverse nature of our society.
