NSUN Chief Executive Officer
The National Survivor User Network (NSUN) is a membership network led by people with lived experience of mental distress, bringing together over 600 local groups and 3,900 individual members to communicate, support each other, share experiences, give voice to their views and experiences in spaces of power and change things.
From their website:
We are at an exciting stage of change and development, having finished a period of deep reflection and review. After 10 years in post Sarah Yiannoullou is standing down as Managing Director. During her tenure, NSUN has grown and is now recognised as an independent, authentic collective for the voices of lived experience. Founded on the principles of solidarity, equality, integrity and diversity, we aim to reflect the ‘convention challenging ambitions’ of our members.
We are looking for someone with exceptional leadership qualities, ambition, inspiration and visionary drive to take the organisation forward. This needs to be someone who can translate our strategic vision into both high-quality practical and fundable programmes and effective advocacy work. They will need to demonstrate an ability to inspire and motivate a team of staff and associates and a 4500-strong membership.
For the right candidate, this post will be both challenging and enormously rewarding, with the potential to develop and shape an already well-respected organisation into an even stronger force.
