A key moment for Shaping Our Lives

This is an opportunity to make a real difference! The agenda of inclusivity, and the voices of service users influencing policy and services, has gathered momentum in recent years. Shaping Our Lives stands at a moment where our impact could enable an authentic step-change in the inclusion movement. That is why we need a CEO to work with us to ensure that we maximise the opportunities available to us to deliver meaningful and impactful change.

This really is a unique opportunity for an authentic and values-driven leader to join our talented, committed and passionate team to bring about more inclusive policies, services and support for people who face marginalisation and oppression. This is an opportunity to “be on the right side of history”, as a member of the team said.

The role

This is a strategic and relationship-based role, working with a talented, committed and passionate team of volunteers and staff, to deliver on:

  • Promoting best-practice inclusive involvement of people who use health and social care services locally and nationally.
  • Providing resources and research to support organisations and people who take part in engagement activities to have a meaningful and influential experience.
  • Inclusive involvement guidance, training and practice so that health and social care providers can create better and more effective services for the people who use them.

About you

The CEO could come with experience and skills formed in a range of organisations and settings. You may already be a CEO, or maybe you feel ready to step up and lead an organisation for the first time. Whatever your background, we will be delighted to hear from you, especially if you have outstanding organisational, leadership and management skills together with an entrepreneurial mindset, with a proven track record of generating an income for an organisation and a passion for equality in our society.

Shaping Our Lives is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. We welcome and encourage applications from people from marginalised and often excluded communities.
