Chief Executive Officer, Shoreditch Town Hall


Housed in one of the grandest former civic buildings in London, in the heart of one of the capital’s most vibrant and diverse areas, Shoreditch Town Hall has established itself as a leading cultural, live event and community venue.

2021 provides an exciting opportunity for a new Chief Executive Officer to steer Shoreditch Town Hall through its next period of growth and development.

As CEO, you will work closely with the Senior Management Team and Board of Trustees to lead the strategic direction of the organisation, being responsible for all Trust operations and activity. Advising and ensuring good governance across all aspects of the charity is imperative. Furthermore, you will be responsible for ensuring financial control, leading on budgeting and helping to support well established internal teams to meet targets and drive opportunities to increase and diversify revenue streams in line with our vision and strategy. 

We are looking for a proven successful, commercial, and values-led leader to become our next CEO. As CEO you will have the demonstrable leadership experience and communication skills, inspiring those within the Town Hall and beyond.  The ability to lead, collaborate and work effectively with key stakeholders is vital, as is experience in fostering new partnerships. Proven ability to attract funds, new clients, and generate income through fundraising is key. Ideally you will carry real influence and credibility within the cultural /heritage sector and with our range of partners.  Our new CEO must have the ability to operate effectively in a complex commercial environment and have artistic sensibility. Finally, you will also be prepared to challenge established practices to help our organisation adapt in the rapidly changing landscape due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
