Chief Executive Officer
Location: Central London (Chancery Lane)
IET Connect is an independent charity that provides advice, support and financial assistance to members of the Institution of Engineering and Technology and their families. Having run for over 120 years, IET Connect currently supports hundreds of members from around the world and continues to grow.
IET Connect’s service is bespoke and everyone who contacts the charity is treated as unique. Support is tailored to meet the needs of the individual, and caseworkers can draw on a broad palette of available services and funding.
The charity benefits from secure funding and a committed team of staff, trustees and volunteers, as well as strong networks across the charity sector.
The charity is keen to reach more beneficiaries by raising awareness of the charity and the support it offers to IET members, so that they call when they need assistance. This will in turn increase the numbers of people the charity supports each year. To achieve this, IET Connect has made a significant investment in marketing in recent months, and our new CEO will lead this effort.
IET Connect is seeking a motivational leader with excellent governance and stakeholder management skills to take the charity forward, building on its many strengths.
The successful candidate will have:
- A track record in business, charity management or the public sector at an appropriate level of seniority, which will be likely to have included some or all of the following; a tight knit staff team, managing assets, resources and risk.
- Substantial experience of influencing, negotiating and working in partnership with high-level contacts both internal and external to the organization.
- The ability to plan on a strategic and operational level
- Empathy and social skills in order to build effective working relationships with others, e.g. Trustees, decision makers, direct reports, colleagues, volunteers, beneficiaries etc
