Following the retirement of our CEO we are seeking a creative, entrepreneurial individual with a successful track record as a senior leader, ideally as a CEO, to achieve our ambitions as the leading organisation supporting unpaid carers in Harrow.

As our CEO, your key responsibilities will include:

- Working with the board and key stakeholders to develop and implement the strategic vision of Harrow Carers
- Sustaining and growing the charity financially and reputationally in line with strategic plans using a combination of business development and fundraising skills and experience
- Representing the charity as the main ambassador and engaging with all stakeholders
