Cumbria’s dynamic climate change and sustainability organisation is seeking a new chief executive to lead our talented and dedicated team at a time of unique challenge and opportunity.
For more than 20 years, Cumbria Action for Sustainability (CAfS) has been driving a shift towards our vision of a zero carbon Cumbria, bringing about a better way of life in balance with our environment.
We are seeing an unprecedented upsurge in public interest in the climate crisis, and Cumbrian people and organisations want to respond. We have the expertise and experience to support them in tackling the causes of climate change, but we need to grow and develop to meet the rise in demand for our services.
Our current chief executive is moving into a new senior management position at CAfS to focus on developing specific high-priority areas in our business plan and to build and influence strategic partnerships. We are therefore recruiting a new CEO to lead our experienced, dedicated and friendly team of 12 staff, working alongside our talented board of trustees. Our new CEO will implement our vision, drive sustainability at all levels of the public and political spectrum, lead the day-to-day management of CAfS and work with trustees on financial viability.
This is a hugely exciting opportunity for an experienced leader to guide a respected and dynamic organisation at a point of great challenge and potential, and to be part of global action to protect our environment for future generations to come.
