The Fairbanking Foundation encourages and assists financial institutions to improve the financial well-being of their customers. Improving the financial well-being of consumers informs all that the charity does. Its primary activities are a well-established and highly regarded UKAS endorsed accreditation scheme for financial products, and a growing research and advisory service. More than 20 million consumers today are using financial products that have gained a Fairbanking Mark.
The Foundation is funded by grants, donations and fees from Fairbanking Mark certification activities and advisory services. In 2017 it created a strategic partnership with DNV GL to support the further growth of its Fairbanking Mark certification scheme.
As it approaches its 10th anniversary this Autumn, the organisation is looking for a leader to join as its new CEO. The new CEO will work with trustees and staff and associates of the charity to develop and then lead and deliver its future strategy.
The successful candidate will be a dynamic, highly skilled and experienced senior leader with the demonstrable skills and ability to lead a charity. They will have a strong track record in growing organisations and income; be able to demonstrate strategic leadership skills and have the ability to lead and empower staff and volunteers, inspire a range of stakeholders, and influence policy. They will also have excellent negotiation, partnership development and organisational skills, and a genuine interest in the mission and vision of the Fairbanking Foundation is essential, as is knowledge or experience of personal finance, financial inclusion, behavioural economics, accreditation schemes, research and advocacy. Experience of operating in a political environment, and working with voluntary Trustees and associates, as well as businesses is desirable.
