The Cued Speech Association UK, a national charity, is looking for a dynamic new leader as our current Executive Director retires. This appointment gives candidates the opportunity to make a lasting, UK-wide change both to the lives of individual deaf children, and also to the whole environment in which deaf children live and are educated.

About our charity: the Cued Speech Association UK (CASUK) provides information and training in Cued Speech. Cued Speech is a unique, ground- breaking way to help deaf children and adults to quickly understand the spoken language which surrounds them with the result that they can integrate more easily into family life, school and wider society. It was developed 50 years ago, and there is now a substantial body of research which demonstrates its effectiveness. It is a simple system which clarifies lip- reading for deaf babies, children and adults.

The role: the Executive Director (ED) will lead CASUK and spearhead our 3- year project, starting in spring 2017, which aims to vastly increase the opportunities and support for families with deaf children aged 0-3.

The ED will work with Trustees and advisors to meet the needs of those who could benefit from Cued Speech:

  • giving strategic direction and leadership to ensure long term sustainability and optimum development of the charity
  • working with others to promote Cued Speech, to promote the right of deaf children to understand and use English regardless of their hearing status, and to promote an environment in which Cued Speech-using deaf children can flourish
  • ensuring delivery of effective training in Cued Speech
  • securing funds and efficient financial management
  • ensuring efficient and effective general management and administration.

As an effective communicator, the ED will be the key spokesperson for the Charity in communications with major funders, the government and other organisations.

You will possess the necessary promotional and financial skills to build on our success and ensure the sustainability of our national charity. You will be an inspirational leader, have excellent interpersonal skills to effectively lead, manage and motivate the staff team, and excellent workload planning and prioritising abilities. You will be a graduate with knowledge of and experience in: the sector, human resources management, fundraising & financial management and project management.

You will be passionate about the opportunity to dramatically improve the lives of deaf children.

Location could be UK-wide and home-based for the right candidate, but candidates who can easily travel to London and to the administration offices in Devon are preferred. Regular UK-wide travel is part of the role.

Terms: permanent contract; part-time - 0.8 Full Time Equivalent (FTE), although this may be negotiable. Salary up to £36,000 (£45,000 FTE).
