Cruse Bereavement Care is the leading national charity for bereaved people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Who we are

From our beginnings running clubs for widows from our founder’s house in Kew in the 1950s, Cruse Bereavement Care has grown to be a charity with an international reputation.  We’ve expanded to help widowers, children and eventually all bereaved people and have grown to a network which includes 5,000 volunteers.

We opened our first branch in Northern Ireland in 1984. Fast forward to 2021, and there are six branches located throughout the region.

In NI there are over 350 volunteers specially trained to help people affected by bereavement in a professional, safe and supportive environment.

What we’re looking for

This role of Cruse NI Director will provide leadership to the operations, policy development and external partnerships needed at a nation level.  They will also participate at a senior level in the UK Services leadership team.

Our NI operation is referred to internally as the NI Hub. This structure consists of the NI Director, NI Hub Manager, an operational team that sit under the Hub Manager, and a small number of project managers who report directly into the Director. In total  the team has around 18 people and the budget is approximately £250k a year.

We are looking for someone with great influencing and ambassadorial skills to maintain and further develop the excellent relationships we’ve nurtured with public, private and third sector stakeholders and funders over the years.
