The British Red Cross is recognised as a leading humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. In response to the shifting UK landscape, we are continuing to develop our services as part of a major transformational development programme. We are on an exciting journey of growth enhancing our capacity, capability and performance so that we are ultimately recognised as the leading provider in each of our areas of operation. We already have a track record of service delivery to people in crisis in the UK and have recently taken steps to strengthen our focus on quality and outcomes, health and social care and advocacy. We have an innovative UK Service Development team that will shape our future services and ensure a sustainable and successful future for the British Red Cross and its beneficiaries.

We are seeking a pioneering Director of UK Service Development to play a pivotal role in helping us increase our reach, visibility and influence, so that we maximise our impact on people’s lives.

The challenges of the role will include:

  • developing and leading the implementation of our national service strategies, helping to shape an organisation that offers service excellence and operational efficiency across the country 
  • overseeing the evidence-based design and development of our key services, including support in emergencies, independent living support, event first aid and refugee support ensuring that we learn quickly and that local best practice is shared nationally
  • maximising the performance, quality and outcomes for the British Red Cross and ensuring accountability to beneficiaries
  • positioning the British Red Cross as a thought leader in new services with new partners

As part of our senior management team you will work closely with our Heads of Service and build relationships with senior internal and external stakeholders. We are seeking a leader with a track record of service development at local and national levels, strategic insight, operational service design experience, and the ability to develop compelling funding bids.
