Could you drive the BSBI forward as our first ever Chief Executive Officer?

About the organisation

The Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI) is the leading charitable organisation promoting the enjoyment, study and conservation of wild plants in Britain and Ireland. We aim to build a diverse community of skilled and enthused botanists, provide data and science to help address biodiversity loss and climate change and disseminate information to drive a passion for plants. To do this we provide opportunities for involvement for all through a range of participation projects, indoor and outdoor events, training opportunities and the production of books and other useful material. We have a strong, stable and steadily growing membership base of over 3,000 and hundreds of dedicated volunteers who conduct the majority of BSBI’s activity.

We are now seeking to appoint a Chief Executive Officer to drive the organisation forward with our plans for organisational growth and development by being the key advocate and leading and inspiring our small team of ten staff (all remote workers) to implement our recently completed organisational Strategy and Fundraising plans.

About the role

We are seeking an individual who can bring the drive and determination to realise our Vision, Purpose and Goals. They will provide leadership for the growth of BSBI and its influence in helping address the biodiversity loss and climate change challenges.

This is an exciting role to be a lead advocate for BSBI work externally, working with key volunteers like the Board of Trustees, Chair and President to lead the strategic development and day-to-day operations of BSBI. This includes developing and implementing the strategic vision and accompanying plans.

The CEO will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the BSBI and its staff and reports directly to the Chair of the Board of Trustees. The CEO runs the operational side of the Charity, leading the team, taking responsibility for the management and development of the BSBI and for the management of its resources, securing sustainable funding, leading on matters of governance, representing BSBI, ensuring people within the Society are appropriately managed and furthering its influence and reach.

The role will seek to achieve a sustainable, vibrant Society, widely respected for its botanical science and training activities and products.

This is a home-based role.
