Are you the right person to lead a team who are passionate about improving the health and wellbeing of Irish people, or those of Irish descent, in Manchester?

Irish Community Care Manchester is seeking to appoint a CEO to be the key strategic driver for the organisation to develop, deliver and maintain best practice for our communities in Manchester and surrounding areas.

During the last 5 years ICCM has enjoyed a positive trajectory. New Trustees, with key skills including finance, social care, legal and communications, have been recruited to create a dynamic and supportive Board. In 2019 a successful bid to the National Lottery Reaching Communities programme secured 3 years funding to provide long term support and advocacy from October 2020. Year-on-year increases in the grants from the Emigrant Support Programme also highlights the trust and faith in ICCM’s service quality.

Employee benefits include opportunities for flexible working, 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays), a workplace pension scheme, sick pay scheme, regular supervision and a variety of learning and development opportunities.
