The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) intends to appoint a new Chief Executive, at the conclusion of the highly successful tenure of Sir John Low. CAF is a charity, a bank, and a champion for better giving. For over 90 years, it has been helping donors, companies, charities, and social organisations to make a bigger impact. The organisation’s independence, expertise, and reach means that it is uniquely placed to do this. CAF is one of the largest charitable foundations in Europe, and works with people, companies, and charities, in the UK and internationally, to facilitate giving, and provide financial services tailored to the needs of charities.

The new Chief Executive will join at an exciting time for the organisation. The range of advisory services it provides to both charities and their donors is growing. Its connections to them and to policy makers have never been more important. The Chief Executive will bring a proven track record of successful management in organisations of significant scale and complexity. S/he will have a demonstrable appreciation of leadership in civil society, and the ability to manage complex stakeholders. The successful candidate will be a gifted influencer and advocate.
