Dear Candidate

I am delighted that you have expressed an interest in applying to be the Chief Executive Officer of the Fishermen’s Mission. We hope that you find the information in this candidate brief and on our website useful: https://www.fishermensmission.org.uk/

We are looking for a Chief Executive Officer to continue the excellent work of the current post holder, who is retiring next year. This is an exciting role for someone with strong empathetic leadership and strategic thinking and delivery skills.

You would have overall responsibility of the day-to-day operations to deliver the Charity’s objectives and lead and develop the Charity’s strategic vision in response to changes in the fishing industry, welfare demands/best practice and legislation. You would work closely with the Council of the Fishermen’s Mission, to ensure that trustees are appropriately informed of the Charity’s overall performance, governance, key risks, achievement of its objects and emerging concerns and staff issues.

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

For a confidential conversation with Thewlis Graham Associates who are managing the process, please contact Sarah Thewlis, Managing Director on 0207 850 4781 or email applications@thewlisgraham.com.  Sarah will be happy to discuss this opportunity with you and answer any questions you may have.

Yours sincerely,

Michael Vlasto
