We’re Recruiting! Strategic Development Brief

Ready to help guide the strategic development of a flourishing local charity?

Exciting developments are on the horizon! Thanks to recently securing three-year funding, we’re in a great position to plan for the future and shape how our community welcomes individuals fleeing war and persecution. This funding marks a pivotal moment in our journey towards organisational resilience and effectiveness. At the same time, Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council is starting its journey to become a Local Authority of Sanctuary. This presents a great opportunity for us to link together strategically, collaborate and align efforts in how our Valley welcomes Refugees and people seeking asylum.

We’re looking for someone who enjoys and is skilled in creating and enhancing internal policies and procedures to strengthen our organisation. This role entails working closely with our diverse group of members (organisations) and supporters (residents) to create our three-year vision and develop a strategic plan to achieve it. Experience of evaluation tools and frameworks is crucial for assessing our effectiveness, and a proactive attitude towards partnerships and collaboration is key. If you’re passionate about making a real difference and eager to contribute to our common goal, we’d love to hear from you.

If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you!
