CVS Brent is an independent, capacity building organisation, supporting groups providing community services on a not-for-profit basis, for the local community in the London Borough of Brent. We contribute to the creation of an independent, trusted and sustainable voluntary and community sector (VCS) to further develop a thriving civil society. This is achieved through the provision of services using a mixture of group training, information and guidance. Our goal is local VCS agencies equipped and able to provide cutting edge local services.
CVS Brent is looking for a new Chief Executive to continue the organisation’s development and lead on supporting Brent’s VCS. This is an exciting position which requires the successful candidate to maintain high level strategic relationships with local authorities and ongoing professional development support for local voluntary & community organisations in the midst of a changing climate.

• Continued support for the VCS’s development
• Exploring alternative methods for economic sustainability
• Support to establish more partnerships to respond to needs (e.g. health).
