Accelerate CIC

Commercial Director

Package: £80,000 to £90,000 GBP per annum
Location: Europe - London - United Kingdom
Deadline: 13 December 2021

Accelerate Community Interest Company (CIC) is a pioneering team on a mission to transform outcomes in chronic wounds, lymphoedema and mobility. Established ten years ago, it operates as a social enterprise run on a not-for-profit basis and works in close partnership with the NHS. From its original East London origins, it is now ambitious to extend its distinctive, holistic, and multidisciplinary approach to ever more people.

Accelerate is entering an exciting new phase in which its primary focus will be on increasing its reach and impact, and on making its pioneering approaches to lower leg management available to ever more people. It wishes to establish itself as a nationally recognised ‘best in class’ service. With an increasingly prominent digital dimension, there are few restrictions on Accelerate’s growth potential. Its strategy is to increase access to the Accelerate Way, to the Accelerate Academy and to Accelerate Click! all with the aim of driving up transformation and changing lives for its marginalised community.

Accelerate is seeking a Commercial Director who will oversee finance, performance, business development, and expansion. Reporting to, and deputising for, the CEO, this post will also be a member of Accelerate’s Board with full voting rights. This is a rare opportunity to have a major impact on people’s lives and to make your mark on an organization at an exciting stage of development with an increasingly national and international reputation for clinical excellence and innovation.

We are looking for a naturally collaborative senior leader with fresh ideas, an in-depth understanding of clinical commissioning, and a personal alignment with Accelerate’s values, impact, and ambitions. A strong track record of developing and delivering digital innovation will be particularly important.

The deadline for receipt of applications is midday (GMT) on Monday, 13th December 2021.

Accelerate is an equal opportunity employer. It celebrates diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive environment for all its staff and patients.

Accelerate welcomes and encourages applications from candidates of all backgrounds, but is particularly keen to hear from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) individuals, and from men, since both of these groups are currently under-represented in its senior team.
