BVA Is Looking For A New Chief Executive


BVA has had an interim CEO since July 2017. We have since re-focused our strategic direction and are now looking for a permanent CEO to take this forward. To enable a strong focus on strategic direction and external stakeholder management, as well as the operational running of the organisation and service delivery, our preferred approach would be to recruit a part-time CEO, supported by an Operations Manager. However, we are prepared to be flexible and would consider applications from particularly strong candidates looking for full-time hours. BVA Logo
