Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity – Chief Executive (Portsmouth)


The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity has a clear vision of a world in which sailors, marines and their families are valued and supported for life. Putting these words into practice every day places our beneficiaries at the heart of everything we do.

The Royal Navy is central to Britain’s past and critical to Britain’s future. As a maritime nation, which conducts 95% of its trade by sea, our safety and security rests heavily on the men and women of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, who deliver the highest operational tempo of any Navy in the world. But it is not just those who wear the uniform that need our support; we firmly believe that “one person joins, the whole family serves” and our work encompasses the dependants of our naval family; that’s around 750,000 people, whose legacy stretches from the Second World War to the present day.

The Charity has just marked its tenth anniversary; a decade that has seen us emerge from a concept to our position as the National charity of the Royal Navy and the strategic partner of the Navy Board. Our brand and reach has grown inside the Service from new entrants to the highest levels. As a Group we have delivered over £55m to our beneficiaries and built a new capability to fundraise. We represent the voice of naval charity in both the military charity sector and to government and we have a crucial role to play in shaping the sector. It has been an extraordinary period of growth and we have a clear view of how our role as a fundraising and grant-making charity will build on strong foundations.

An exceptional CEO is retiring and the Board seek a replacement to lead the charity through an exciting and stimulating next phase of the Charity’s development. If you have passion and empathy for our cause, can demonstrate a track record of successful general management, are an excellent relationship builder, have the skill to convince donors to join us, and have the emotional intelligence and resilience to lead in the third sector, then we very much look forward to hearing from you.
