Director of People
UBS is a fellowship of 146 Bible Societies working in over 200 countries and territories. We translate, publish and distribute the Bible, help people engage with the Bible, and are also active in areas such as literacy training, HIV/ AIDS education and trauma healing.
Following recent years of re-envisioning and restructuring the role of UBS, the Global Mission Team is now seeking the help of a Director of People. This leader will have a crucial role in further developing the effectiveness of our mission and the flourishing of our people.
The Director of People will report to the Global COO and work at a strategic leadership level to shape and influence culture and provide hands-on and advisory HR and OD services in the international context of UBS and the global fellowship. The Director of People is responsible for facilitating the growth and flourishing of people within the Global Mission Team (GMT). In addition, this role will be a member of the Global Mission Leadership Team (GMLT), which is responsible for the overall development, strategy, planning and leadership of the whole Global Mission Team. Within the wider Bible Society fellowship, this role has a global vista and wide ranging scope to create new initiatives within mixed economies. The Director of People will also enhance the efforts of Bible Societies in generating best people management practices across a wide range of cultural and organisational contexts.

Scripture Union exists to share the good news of Jesus with the next generation. We invite children and young people to explore the difference Jesus can make to the challenges and adventures of life.
The Board of Scripture Union is now seeking a Treasurer to be a key contributor in an exciting season of innovative mission as we share the good news of Jesus with the 95% of children and young people who do not have regular contact with a church.
In order to achieve our strategic aims of fruitful ministry to children and young people, Scripture Union needs the godly governance of a strong Board of Trustees. We seek a Treasurer with wisdom to weigh risks in the light of our great commission, balancing a faith-filled investment mind-set with the rigour to assess challenges and monitor our fruitfulness. The Treasurer will apply their strategic financial leadership experience within a strong governance context, succeeding current Treasurer Derek Adams in providing professional and Board expertise in the areas of finance, audit and risk management. The Treasurer will chair the Audit Committee.
The Treasurer will be a key aide to the Board’s good stewardship of precious resources and trusted reputation, and will ensure we operate at the highest standards of probity, compliance and risk-management. With accountancy qualifications and ideally prior exposure to charity accounts, the Treasurer will work particularly closely with the Chair of the Board and the Managing Director. The Treasurer will help mature the Board’s exercise of stewardship, helping trustees without financial management experience understand and participate in this aspect of their responsibilities.
Applications must be received by the 10th of May 2017.
Chair of the Board
Spurgeons Children’s Charity has been providing support to vulnerable and disadvantaged children and families across England for 150 years.
We believe every child deserves a childhood and an equal chance to fulfill their dreams. Through our work, we give these children and families the chance they need for a better present and more hope filled future.
We currently deliver over 40 projects, supporting vulnerable children and families to find long-lasting solutions to the challenges they face – including poverty, abuse problems, offending and other social issues. At any one time, we’re reaching out to over 37,000 children and young of all faiths or none.
Stuart Cornwell was appointed Chair in 2011 and has served us tirelessly and with great wisdom. He is stepping down after two three year terms and we are seeking a successor to build on his good work and help lead our innovative and mission-led charity into the future.
You will bring creativity, strategic insight, the passion to cultivate excellence and a natural ability to build strong relationships to a well-run, well-loved and evolving charity. You will take the lead responsibility for our good governance by galvanising our strong and united Board who support us with ambition, prayerfulness and diverse professional expertise.
Applications must be received by 4th May.
