The Springboard Charity seeks an inspirational new leader

Further to the recent announcement in the press regarding Anne Pierce’s retirement, the Springboard Charity is searching for a new Chief Executive to drive forward an exciting new chapter in this organisation’s incredible journey.

The Springboard Charity is celebrating 30 years of fulfilling its mission to help people of all ages and backgrounds improve their career potential in hospitality, leisure and tourism.  Since its inception, it has developed inspirational education programmes in schools, along with mentoring programmes for college and university students.  It has been recognised for its award-winning employability programmes, designed to help people living in poverty, facing multiple barriers to work or experiencing long-term unemployment into sustainable work in the industry. At the same time, its trading arm, Springboard UK has led numerous campaigns to promote the industry as a great place to work and activity to support the people and citizenship priorities of its investing business partners.

Post-COVID-19, Springboard’s work will be needed more than ever but, in a changed world, the new Chief Executive will need to drive innovation & change to secure new income streams and ensure the organisation is fit for future purpose, ready to achieve its ambition to make a difference to more people’s lives and the industry.
