For the last thirty years, Stonewall has campaigned for equality and fought discrimination at every turn. Today it is the UK’s largest charity for lesbian, gay, bi and trans people. A key part of our success is our Diversity Champions programme, which encourages companies to make their workplaces and practices more inclusive. We currently work with almost 400 employers across the UK and around 100 multinational employers globally.
Join us as Head of Public Sector Membership Programmes and you’ll lead the strategic planning, delivery and growth of the programme in line with ambitious income targets. Managing a portfolio of high-profile accounts, your focus will be on client acquisition, satisfaction and retention, and working with Executive and Board level stakeholders to deliver meaningful organisational change.
Reporting to Director level and managing a team of 13, you will lead the development, delivery and growth of strategic partnerships and policy initiatives with public and third sector bodies (particularly in education, health, housing, policing and with UK government departments). Ensuring that programmes are evidenced based, you’ll work with project teams to develop customer facing resources, benchmarking indices and recognition mechanisms, and market and deliver conferences and workshops.
You will be responsible for the delivery of strategy and related sector-specific membership programmes with a focus on quality, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability. You’ll also work closely with teams across Stonewall to ensure alignment of their programmes and partnerships ensure that learning is shared and opportunities for change are maximised.
To be effective in the role you’ll need proven experience of devising and delivering membership programmes and partnerships at a national level and an understanding of the challenges and opportunities for LGBT inclusion in the public sector. Motivated by targets - and with a track record of achieving them - you’ll be experienced in managing and developing multidisciplinary teams and in influencing decision makers to deliver change. Your financial acumen will dovetail with your commercial thinking, the ability to manage budgets, developing sustainable income streams and preparing financial reports.
