Job title: Chief Executive Officer
Salary: Up to £58,000 per annum (FTE)
The primary responsibility of the CEO is to direct TreeSisters' strategic vision for the future, aligning the team with the mission and charitable objectives to fulfil our purpose. TreeSisters is seeking a flexible, versatile person with an understanding of strategy and the big picture, able to dig in when necessary and lead the consciousness shift we believe is essential to bring change and save the planet. We wish to ‘be the change we want to see’.
Our outgoing CEO has successfully led a complete restructure, built a strong team and created a broad strategy of global alignment, whilst addressing our mission and the shift in thinking. She has provided the perfect blend of the traditional masculine and feminine traits. She has worked with our Founder, the ‘face of TreeSisters’ and the creative force behind much of our work. Our Founder is transitioning into an externally facing role but will need a strong relationship with the person coming in. The successful applicant will be able to manage this, also working well with the Board of Trustees. We expect our new CEO to continue to shape the culture of TreeSisters, working closely with the team, in line with our core values, and role model these values. You need to lead a large remote team and work as part of a truly global organisation.
You will be self-motivated and thrive when working in a globally distributed, virtual team environment. You will be a people person with strong collaboration, communication, organisation and interpersonal skills.
