Welcome & Introduction from the Chair

We are looking for a Managing Partner who will help Global Action Plan build on fantastic foundations to become the charity that organisations turn to when they want to help people live more sustainably. The opportunity is huge – the need undeniable.

The new Managing Partner will inherit an organisation that:

  • Has an unmatchable track-record in delivering transformative environmental behaviour change programmes over the last 20 years. This is recognised through endorsement from the United Nations Environment Programme, numerous awards and a strong reputation with leaders in the sustainability field.
  • Has long-lasting partnerships with some of the UK’s leading businesses including Sainsburys, O2 and Lloyds delivering cutting-edge behaviour change programmes that are delivering significant environmental benefits.
  • Is pioneering new employee change programmes within the NHS, an area we anticipate will grow considerably over the coming years.
  • Has introduced a new partnership model that is unique to the charity sector and which has yielded increased growth and impact over the last year thanks to a team of incredibly talented and enthusiastic partners supported by an experienced and diverse board.
  • Has pioneered a range of new funding models. This includes quasi-investment equity which has created stronger relationships with funders, built financial resilience and increased impact.
  • Successfully wins prestigious contracts – most recently securing work to support an engagement programme across the parliamentary estate.
  • Positively influences policy. We are currently one of the organisations testing behaviour change models linked to the introduction of Smart Meters and we are playing a leading role in promoting the most energy efficient appliances.
  • Employs a team of 30 highly talented people committed to our charitable mission and motivated to create change at an ever increasing scale.

We are looking for a dynamic and collaborative leader who will relish the scope that this role provides and who has the credibility, passion and ability to seize the many opportunities available to Global Action Plan.

If this sounds like you, we look forward to hearing from you
