Director of Strategy and Programmes

As TLG grows rapidly, we are now at a step-change moment and are looking for a new leader to join us and help us get to where we believe God is calling TLG in the years ahead.

The newly created role of Director of Strategy and Programmes will be a mission-driven and relational leader, rooted in our shared hopefulness and joining our sense of urgency that more can and must be done to help vulnerable children and families. With experience leading effective operational delivery though dispersed teams, the Director of Strategy and Programmes will delight in helping an impassioned team grow TLG together.

The Director of Strategy and Programmes will design and deliver the strategic framework and operating model that enables our people and culture to continue thriving as we go through various phases of exponential growth. Through an ever-expanding network of church partnerships, this leader will help us deliver truly transformative programmes. That is a huge challenge and an incredible exciting opportunity!

We need a leader who is passionate about keeping TLG’s mission on track, who cares for and develops our people and culture, and who brings a whole range of business skills to help us chart out and navigate the seasons of change ahead.
