Full Time

Helford River Children's Sailing Trust (HRCST) is a charity based in Cornwall with a proud track record over 20 years of teaching children and young people to develop new skills and confidence through learning to sail and other water based activities. Over 600 children participate each year, the majority at no charge and who otherwise would not have this opportunity because of circumstances, and despite living close to the sea.

The charity is now at an exciting next stage of its development looking to expand and build its influence for the next generation. It has recently acquired the beautiful Trevassack Lake site on the Lizard peninsula. Targeting many more youngsters including those with physical, behavioural and educational disabilities, this hugely rewarding activity includes building a state of the art Learning Centre and in due course several residential lodges for accompanying families.

HRCST is now seeking to appoint as its first full-time employee, a dynamic Chief Executive to lead and develop the charity in this next stage. The successful candidate will have the leadership skills and personal enthusiasm to translate visionary objectives into operational plans and to motivate and inspire employees, volunteers and funders.

You must be able to demonstrate a strong track record of delivery, good communication skills and have financial acumen. As befits a smaller organisation, you will need to be highly self-motivated, wear many hats and be both strategic and operational as the trust develops.

Please contact for an application pack or if you wish to discuss the position further. 

Deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 28th July.

First Interviews: Wednesday 16th August 2017
