Exciting Opportunity with Medway Voluntary Action30-Nov-2018
Medway Voluntary Action have an exciting opportunity!
We are looking for a New Initiatives Consultant and applications are now open.
Medway Voluntary Action is an organisation that has historically provided voluntary sector infrastructure to the myriad of local charities in Medway, alongside a training offer, and has provided a seedbed for a number of small charities over the years before launching those charities to independence.
The context in which MVA has operated for some years, is changing rapidly. The funding climate is shifting dramatically from one of grant funding, to contract funding, with an emphasis on gaining more for less, meaning contract levels are increasingly inadequate for the delivery of the services to a high standard of quality, and restrictive in terms of developing new services.
MVA are seeking to widen their current remit, deliver services and engage in commercial activity. MVA intend to appoint a consultant to report to the Board of Trustees by the end of March (with an interim report by the end of February) to:
Effectively scope, develop and create new models of work which drive unrestricted income into the charity assisting its sustainability and ability to innovate in response to changing needs and gaps in the sector
Inform a 3-5 year strategic plan for developing new services
The deadline for applications is the 21st December 2018.
It is anticipated that interviews will take place during week beginning 14th January 2019. Applicants selected for interview will also be required to deliver a presentation. The anticipated start date for this project is the 1st February.
Please send your application to Jane Howard, CEO of MVA, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For an informal discussion please contact Jane on 01634 812850.
