The new national Cohesion and Integration Network (COIN) is seeking its first Chief Executive to bring people together and to develop and build best practice.

Our aim is for the first time via our national Network, the thousands of individuals and organisations involved in vital cohesion and integration work will have access to guidance and resources.

We aim for COIN to bring organisations and individuals from across all of the cohesion sectors together – to share their ideas, knowledge and experience to work more effectively. We hope you are interested in exploring this opportunity and taking on this challenge.

We are seeking our first Chief Executive who has experience and knowledge particularly in the following areas:

  • Proven track record in a senior strategic leadership role
  • Effectively working with government and managing stakeholders
  • Delivering productive learning collaborations and sector training
  • Success in income generation and its development
  • and ideally, senior leadership of a network or membership body.

We have secured national government backing and early stage funding, and are establishing COIN as a registered charity. From here you will lead our Network’s stakeholder engagement and fundraising activities, securing members of the Network, partners and funders to further develop our work.

As our new Chief Executive you will be working alongside experts, policy makers and practitioners from across the UK and sharing ideas and good practice internationally. You will lead and oversee many development opportunities and build an online resource pack of tools and guides for our growing group of members.

Ultimately, you will act as an ambassador for COIN, establishing and leading the organisation to develop a new era of professional practice to build the confidence and capacity to deliver the ambition of a more integrated and less divided society.

We look forward to receiving your application.

To apply for this position, please submit by email a comprehensive CV and a supporting statement of no more than two pages of A4 by 10am on 15 October to Cathy@cohesionintegration.net
