The British Horse Society is the essential organisation in the equine fabric of the UK.
Established in 1947, it is the UK’s largest equine charity and membership Society with a team dedicated to world class professional and recreational education programmes, equine welfare and lobbying for improved on-road safety and off-road access for horses, riders and carriage drivers. The vision is for every horse to be respected, protected and enjoyed by knowledgeable, caring people.
As CEO, you will lead a team of over 150 employees along with a 1,000 plus volunteer network. You will be responsible for a membership base in excess of 108,000 and equipped to act as an Ambassador for the Society nationally and internationally.
Reporting to the Chair and Board of Trustees, you will be responsible for delivering the 5 year strategic plan designed to drive further growth and build on success to date.
You will possess outstanding communication, influencing and stakeholder management skills along with highly developed commercial acumen. You will also be accountable for the governance frameworks laid down by the Charity Commission so a good understanding of the charity sector and relevant challenges will prove useful. A demonstrable track record of delivering change and growth is essential.
