Executive Director of the English Association
Salary Grade 8: £41,709 to £46,924 per annum
Permanent position, available from November 2017, subject to a 5-year review.
In this role you will lead and develop the business operations of the English Association, which spans one of the broadest subject areas in the UK. You will be responsible for the management and oversight of the English Association’s activities as both a subject association and a learned society. This includes the organization and delivery of an annual events programme that promotes English as a subject across the sectors that align with the Association’s mission: primary, secondary and higher education.
With a relevant degree or professional qualification, you will have substantial experience in a relevant sector or charity. In addition to people, project and financial management experience at a senior level, you will have excellent communication skills and an ability to develop an effective marketing strategy. We are looking for candidates who are able to lead and motivate a team in a busy environment but who are also able to represent the Association effectively on broad educational and policy issues.
Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to the Chair of the English Association, Professor Martin Halliwell on firstname.lastname@example.org
