Chief Executive

(REF 2020-2)

Impact Funding Partners (formerly known as Voluntary Action Fund) are looking for a new Chief Executive with a proven track record of income growth and organisational development.

We are looking for a passionate individual with experience of working across a range of sectors including Government. You will have the opportunity to create positive social, economic and environmental impact within communities while helping to shape the funding landscape in Scotland.


As IFP has entered a new phase of growth following its rebranding and has initiated a new business strategy, you will have proven experience in successfully forming partnerships and promote cross-sectoral collaboration. You will be dealing with senior stakeholders in the public, private and/or third sector, and therefore you will need to demonstrate the ability to engage with public sector funding bodies, potential new funders in the private sector, as well as understand the nuances of the third sector.

A natural leader, you will have excellent communication and negotiation skills with the ability to adapt your management style in a changing environment, and lead through example and inspiration.

As the CEO of IFP you will act as brand ambassador and convey IFP’s strengths, values and priorities to a diverse audience. For that you will have the vision, strategic insight and ability to understand the environment in which IFP operates and raise its profile.

In the current changing socio-economic and political environment in Scotland, it is imperative that you value and promote innovative thinking that allows for the identification of sustainable solutions with a positive social, economic and environmental impact.

Finally, you are a decision-maker who is not afraid to take calculated risks in order to support the continuous growth of IFP.
