Island House is a registered charity and community project based in London’s East End, established by the United Reformed Church in 1972. As part of the voluntary sector, it now serves as a vital hub for the Isle of Dogs and wider Tower Hamlets community, hosting and delivering a wide range of activities, projects and services within its charitable aims.

We are looking for an experienced, creative and visionary new Centre Director who can lead and develop the charity in all aspects of its work, acting as chief executive officer on behalf of the trustees. A key aspect is promoting and developing the community centre’s work in line with its Christian ethos. Senior management experience is essential, and fundraising, accountancy, personnel management, strategic business planning, administration and pioneering visionary leadership are all necessary parts of the role.
