Welcome from the Chief Executive

Campbell Robb

Thank you for your interest in looking at this micro-site. I hope that it provides the information you need to consider applying for the role of Executive Director of JRF.

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) and the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust (JRHT) are two charities which are closely linked and which share common trustees.

This role, based in York but with frequent travel to London, is to provide strategic leadership to the JRF as it strives to achieve its strategic aim to inspire action and change to solve UK poverty.

This role will be critical to leading significant organisational change and improvement within JRF as we embark on a new and exciting journey to becoming an outcomes orientated organisation. The Executive Director will lead on the development of the strategic and delivery plans to meet the organisation’s purpose and objectives and provide leadership, management and direction to the functions of policy & research, communications and external affairs and analysis.

The role will also work closely with the JRHT Strategic Director of Communities to maximise the value of our community work and direct service delivery for both organisations and people in poverty, and to work with the Executive and Trustees to provide challenge and support, to the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust, to drive influence through demonstration.

This role also affords the exciting opportunity to act as one of the main spokespeople for the organisation in the media, and to build and maintain effective relationships with principal stakeholders and key organisations.

Please look through this micro-site and our main websites, and, and feel free to contact our search consultants, Green Park.

If you think you would like to join us we look forward to receiving your application.
