We are seeking a new Chief Executive to take our unique organisation into the next phase of its development. Salli Felton, our current CEO, is stepping down after almost six years at the helm, in order to relocate back to her native Australia due to a family illness.
Our Chair of Trustees, Noel Josephides, said: “Salli is a strong leader, who has grown and shaped the organisation to firmly establish the Travel Foundation at the forefront of sustainable tourism globally. We believe in stretching ourselves and have set ambitious targets to grow our partnerships and programmes accordingly. As a result, we are looking for an exceptional candidate who will nurture a high-performance culture and enable the Travel Foundation to achieve its potential.
This is an exciting time to join the charity, as there is considerable opportunity to capitalise and build on new research findings, launching new charitable initiatives that will benefit destination communities and environments, holidaymakers and the travel industry. The right candidate will be leading a friendly, passionate and skilled executive team of eighteen, motivating them to engage and increase our partnerships, and develop and deliver programmes that unlock the positive potential of tourism. We feel this is a truly exceptional opportunity for a talented individual to make their mark.”
Salli will remain with the organisation until the summer to help facilitate a smooth transition. The new Chief Executive will have the opportunity to develop and grow the charity’s existing work, whilst shaping strategic agenda in the longer term.
We are looking for someone with proven experience in the field of sustainable tourism and leadership, some of which will have been gained in a corporate environment. Go to our recruitment page for more information.
