Are you passionate about empowering people to overcome exclusion, isolation, destitution and poverty?

Action Foundation is an award-winning charity based in Newcastle providing support to people seeking asylum, refugees and other migrants across Tyne and Wear. Through our free English language school, supported housing projects and InterAction Drop-in, we support refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants to integrate successfully into the community and lead more independent and resilient lives.

We are looking for an inclusive and people-focused leader who will ensure our ethos and values remain central. You will bring a track record in developing organisations based on the needs of their clients. With sound strategic experience within an organisation of a similar complexity, you will have ensured operational effectiveness, and provided staff with the necessary support and infrastructure to deliver high quality services. With a strong empathy for the enormous challenges faced by our clients, you will be experienced in representing an organisation to a variety of stakeholders. Crucially you will have a passion for ensuring those who are poor or marginalised are fully supported to achieve their full potential.
