1. Welcome letter from Sharon Grant - Chair

Sharon Grant 3 RGB

Dear Candidate,

I am delighted that you have expressed an interest in applying to be the Chief Executive Officer of Public Voice. Public Voice is a Community Interest Company founded in 2014. Our first five years of operation have seen substantial growth and development resulting in a more diverse range of contracts and services across the health, social care and housing and regeneration sectors. We hope you find the information useful in this candidate brief and also on our website:

Our current Director, Mike Wilson who helped establish the company and has successfully steered us to our current position will be retiring next year. We are now seen as a trusted third sector partner with a largely locally focused portfolio of contracts and services.

We are looking for someone with vision, personal commitment and relevant practical experience and contacts, who can consolidate and build on our successes to date, and lead and support the organization through a new phase of development. Also, someone who is as passionate about addressing inequalities as we are as a board.

We want the new CEO to lead our team and work with the Board. S/he will provide vision, leadership, enterprise, management and operational direction to Public Voice CIC, and its subsidiary Haringey Circle CIC.  It is key that both of these CIC’s have long-term sustainability, further growth and development in line with overall vision and values.

Working with the Chair and other Board members, the CEO will ensure that Public Voice and any related companies are underpinned by robust governance arrangements, sound systems of financial and performance management and evidence-based decision making. 

If this is an opportunity that appeals to you, and you have the skills set out in the job description and key responsibilities section in this candidate brief - we would very much like to hear from you. 

For a confidential conversation with our recruitment partners - Thewlis Graham Associates, please contact Sarah Thewlis, Managing Director on 0207 850 4781 or email  Sarah will be happy to discuss this opportunity with you and answer any questions you may have.

Yours faithfully

Sharon Grant OBE

Chair Public Voice
