Job Description

Westway Trust exists to promote the local economy, provide sport and fitness opportunities, fund and open up access to local Arts and Culture, and promote wellbeing. It does all of this for a community primarily in North Kensington. The Trust is now at a particularly exciting time in its story, having recently been through unprecedented change, placing it firmly back in the hands of the community. But there is much more we need to do. 

As CEO, you will provide clear leadership to the team as we deliver six new strategic priorities. These include bringing about the radical organisational and cultural change needed to reinforce our role as an authentically community-centred enabler, empowerer and facilitator. The Westway community is diverse, committed and knowledgeable and the Trust is committed to being a genuine part of our community and supporting it to have a stronger voice.

We are in a prime position to influence local, London and national decisions that improve social, economic and environmental wellbeing and justice, so that we may challenge systemic injustice and discrimination. On the ground, we will continue to deliver major projects, including the Community Street project, which will enhance the Westway estate for everyone.

Were looking for an engaging, outward-looking and inclusive leader who will win the trust of the Westway community quickly and build confidence in our organisation. Perhaps your experience has been gained as a manager in a grassroots or other similar organisation; or maybe you are someone who has put a community on the map as spokesperson, campaigner or activist. Wherever you are, you will bring exceptional communication skills, creativity, drive and commitment. In return, we are offering an unrivalled chance to leave a powerful legacy to the Westway community for many years to come.
