Chief Executive Officer Full Time

  • The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP)

This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for a dynamic and outcome focussed professional to drive forward and lead a successful membership organisation. The role involves working flexibly, requiring time to be divided between working from home, travelling (including some overseas travel) and managing a busy central office located in Solihull. The new Chief Executive Officer will head a Senior Leadership Team and work with the CIPP Board to implement the Institute’s vision, strategy, and ambition.

Key to the role is the ability to work collaboratively with partners and stakeholders to deliver business growth whilst maintaining both the financial health of the organisation and the highest standards in the services it provides. The CEO has oversight in the areas of policy, finance, people, education/training, membership and operations and will be required to ensure that CIPP business is conducted efficiently, and that effective governance processes and procedures are followed. The position also involves an important ambassadorial role to ensure that the CIPP’s high reputation is maintained.

Candidates will need to provide evidence that they are confident in debating and presenting to a range of audiences, particularly on payroll related topics, and can communicate well with others including peers, staff, members of the Institute and external stakeholders. They will need to be proactive, inspirational and have the energy and enthusiasm to drive strategy, as well as exercising sound judgment in leading the organisation in an appropriate and credible direction.

It will be essential to demonstrate a track record of having grown and nurtured organisations and led effective staff teams, as well as to show a sound understanding of issues affecting payroll and related professions in the UK. Candidates should have a keen interest in organisational design and productivity and best practice in organisations and leadership.
