Following the CEO’s decision to retire, Health Exchange Birmingham is now seeking an exceptional individual to help lead the organisation through the next phase of its journey.

Health Exchange CIC was established in 2007 to deliver a radically different, community-led model of health promotion – initially serving the multicultural and diverse communities living in Birmingham.

Health Exchange was established as a social enterprise, a community interest company, to build on the basic model of a trading company that does its business to improve communities and strengthen community infrastructure; an asset-based approach. By functioning as a trading company, with a social purpose, the CIC has been able to weather the hugely varying and challenging commissioning environment in health and public health over the last 10 years. The company has remained lean at its core with a strong community-embedded infrastructure of full-time and part-time staff and volunteers.

Over the last 10 years Health Exchange has grown and diversified through successful tendering and excellent service delivery to a current turnover of over £3.2 million (including subsidiaries).

The Role
As the CEO you will lead a strong and vibrant “can do” organisation with a committed, motivated and passionate workforce, a reputation for quality and customer service and a commitment to grow in the years ahead. You will be focused on continuous improvement and will be empowered to use novel approaches as you lead the organisation through a complex and ever-changing health and social care landscape, in pursuit of growth and diverse opportunities.

You will supervise and control all strategic and business aspects of the company. You will be the primary officer in the company and responsible for giving strategic direction as well as creating a vision for success.

To thrive as the CEO you must be a prudent manager and an inspiring leader. The ideal candidate will have a business mindset and will be able to see the “big picture” in a variety of settings. You will take actions to enhance the company’s cash flow while keeping the human factor in perspective.
