Sunrise Diversity is a small charity with a big vision – to celebrate diversity, promote human equity and dignity and empower people and communities.  Based in North Devon, we are a small team who work tirelessly to support marginalised people, and help communities recognise, accept and celebrate diversity. Our aim is that all people in North Devon are accepted and respected for their individual humanity within a truly inclusive, supportive and welcoming community.  We are passionate about challenging and transforming attitudes including prejudice, discrimination and abusive practices so all people feel safe, included and valued within their own and the wider community. 

Our excellent CEO is moving on to a new challenge and we need to find someone who can lead us through our next period of growth, helping us to increase in our income and extend our reach.  You will be as passionate as us about social justice and inclusivity for all.  We are looking for someone whose leadership style is that of empowerment and support, an active listener and someone who helps us achieve great solutions to some knotty problems.  You will thrive in a fast-moving environment and be able to respond to changing priorities.  You will represent and promote the charity to a range of stakeholders and potential partners, so you will be confident and credible.  We would be delighted to receive applications from those people with previous experience in our area of work, either from a professional background or lived experience. 

We are working with Jackie Dawkins at Shine Charity Recruitment who is supporting us with this recruitment.  Further information about us and the role can be found in the attached information pack.  You will also find details of how to apply.
