The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health

Chief Executive                                                                                 

London

£90-120k

The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) has never had a more important role to play in protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of the public. Our members are on the front line of mitigating the current pandemic, whilst also delivering business as usual, keeping the public safe from hazards other than coronavirus. CIEH represents the Environmental Health profession, delivering qualifications, training and other services to just over 7000 members and has a critical policy and influencing role with local and central government, industry and the media.

This is an exciting time to join the Institute as it enters the next critical stage in its development, having recently completed a significant programme of transformation to restructure the organisation, put in place key efficiency initiatives and embed a culture of customer excellence and high performance. 

The new Chief Executive will work with the Chair and Trustee Board to lead on the further development and implementation of the Institute’s strategic objectives and business plans, drive continued growth and innovation of its income streams, as well as servicing the needs of its membership. Ensuring that strong operational business plans and financial controls are in place to support and deliver this as well as maintaining and continuing to promote CIEH’s voice and influence locally, regionally and nationally will be a critical area of focus.   

For this role we are seeking an individual with an in-depth working knowledge of environmental health or who can bring professional expertise from another related scientific or technical discipline. An inspiring leader, with outstanding communication skills, you will drive a culture of collaboration, continuous improvement and engagement and will embody the purpose and values of the CIEH. Whether you are a serving Chief Executive, or this is a career step, you will have a demonstrable track record operating and influencing at executive board level in a complex organisation, together with experience of delivering sustainable growth, business performance and sound governance. You will be committed to CIEH’s purpose and vision and will play a critical ambassadorial role in promoting its impact and influence, working effectively with our many varied stakeholders.

Politically astute, you will be a visible and motivating leader, exercising diplomacy and sensitivity when required yet willing to challenge the status quo when needed. Your integrity, standing and judgement will inspire confidence in the CIEH and its work, enabling it to hold the respect of a demanding and rapidly changing sector.
