The Role: 

The Speedwell Trust was originally established in 1991 to promote good relations through shared education. It operates from offices in Cookstown and Parkanaur Forest Park and was registered as a charity in Northern Ireland in 1992.

Since then, we have built on our heritage as a voluntary cross-community organisation to offer developmental activities for children and families based on environmental learning in and around our beautiful County Tyrone base.

The Trust offers a context for children from all communities to meet, to play and to learn together and seeks to encourage children to respect themselves, each other and the world we share.

Our team of six staff and six volunteer trustees remains dedicated to helping people connect with each other and with nature through school support programmes, group workshops, one to one family support activities and more.

Our organisation is governed by a trust deed and reports annually to the Charity Commission of Northern Ireland, as well as providing regular reports and accounts to our funders and partners.

What we’re looking for: 

We’re looking for someone who who will provide leadership to Speedwell Trust ensuring the effective implementation of the organisation’s strategic and business plans and corporate policies.

You’ll have three years senior management experience along with strategic management at that level, with the ability to formulate and implement business plans and organisational policies.

With a record of income generation, you’ll have a background in successful organisation change.

You’ll have highly developed leadership, people management and communications skills.

Critically, we’ll be looking for strong commitment to the ethos and values of the Speedwell Trust.
