We are at a really exciting point in our history. With a new Chief Executive and Chair-designate, and a refreshed narrative of purpose, Leonard Cheshire is demonstrably moving up a gear. Our strategy review is also well underway, and there is a tangible sense that we are firmly on the front foot in terms of organisational shape, effectiveness and purpose. We are living our values of Proud, Positive and Pioneering, and really building on the strength of our highly respected brand – you’ll see much more evidence in the coming years of our determination to make the case for a fair and inclusive world.
Global Head, Safeguarding
You’ll complete the design – and then oversee and monitor the implementation – of our Global Safeguarding Framework, ensuring it delivers our rigorous safeguarding objectives both in the UK and internationally. The overarching structure is in place in all territories, but the process of localisation is continuing, and an early task will be to see this process over the line. This will include the refinement of some systems, including reporting, but the work required is well understood by the team and the wider organisation, and there is very strong support for our safeguarding strategy at executive level.
